    As far as I'm aware, Hanno Vermeulen graded in Japanese Ju Jitsu under my friend Mike Herbig here in Cape Town. I didn't know he was a blackbelt in it.

    I very much doubt Hanno would grade for a brown belt in BJJ right now, because:

    A) He's currently ungraded, and a white-belt to brown-belt jump in BJJ is pretty much unheard of.

    B) I'm not aware that he's ever competed in a BJJ tourney, and I'm pretty sure that would be a criteria for a 10th planet belt, although he did run a nice tourney a few weeks back.

    I know that he's been practicing 'groundworx jiu jitsu' for a while, perhaps he's grading for another belt?

    I hope this helps...
