WHAT DEFINES BJJ: RICKSON GRACIE PRESENTING JEAN JACQUES MACHADO WITH HIS CORAL BELT.

Last week we reported that Jean Jacques was promoted to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu red/black belt (aka Coral Belt).  The photos from that day really captured the momentous event.  We got a little teary, but, as a rule, it's OK if it involves Rickson Gracie. 

Now watch the video of Rickson awarding Jean Jacques his belt and Jean Jacques' emotional response upon receiving it.  If you train BJJ, you will undoubtedly appreciate this clip.  It really speaks to the camaraderie, lineage and heritage of the sport/art.  We're all a part of that, and, like many things we talk about here, it's what BJJ is all about.
