Fresh off his fight against Ze Mario Sperry at ADCC in Beijing this past weekend, Allianace's Fabio Gurgel was promoted to 6th degree Wednesday night. Affectionately known as "The General" Fabio has been a black belt for 24 years now! Truly a living legend in our art, I look forward to training with him one day.
“I received the sixth degree in my black belt tonight from the hands of
my friend Gigi. Thanks Master Romero Jacaré for the touching speech and
for all the teachings. Also thanks to all that were present tonight. I
have no words to say how thankful I am” - Gurgel
