BJJ Belt of Awesomeness!

There are no words that can describe the pure awesomeness of this belt. It belongs to my mate James. Every seminar he attended, he got the instructor to sign his white belt, simple. Check it out!



If you click the photo, you'll see a much larger version. In date order, the signatures are:

  • 11 - Renzo Gracie
  • 10 - Marcio Feitosa (right), Fabio Gurgel (left)
  • 9 - Ze Marcello
  • 8 - Royce Gracie
  • 7 - Murilo Rupp
  • 6 - Shawn Williams
  • 5 + 4 - Mario Reis
  • 3 - Cobrinha
  • 2 - Rafael Lovato Jr
  • 1 - Leo Santos

Thanks very much to James for agreeing to share his personal memento on Meerkatsu.

Actually James tells me he attended a load of seminars where he forgot to bring his BJJ Belt of Awesomeness so it omits a number of key signatures. The full list would fill the entire belt and then some. Or maybe he only got the person to sign if he actually liked the seminar? If so, then well done Nos 1-11 above, you made the grade.

Damn. Did he attend all those as a whitebelt? Or he just brought it along with him... I get it... I might have to copycat that. I know I'll attend more Hillary, Leticia, Royler and Relson in the future so I can always play catch up :) GREAT IDEA!

Cooollll! Now why didn't I think of that? Great idea for the next seminars I attend.

Georgette - The belt was a spare that I got when I bought my first BJJ gi many years ago. The idea came from hearing about people getting their belt signed, but I thought it was crazy to wear a signed belt (the signatures would get worn off!), so I used a spare instead. The Renzo, Marcio Feitosa, Fabio Gurgel and Ze Marcello signatures I got as a white belt, Royce, Murilo Rupp, Shawn Williams and Mario Reis I got as a blue, and Cobrinha, Rafael Lovato Jr and Leo Santos I got as a purple.
