ADCC and World Champion Roger Gracie had the honor of being awarded a fourth stripe on his black belt from his father, Mauricio Gomes.
Best of all, he had the honor of receiving this award after tying a red-and-white coral belt around his father’s waist.
The red-and-white coral belt is the equivalent of an 8th degree black belt. After receiving a black belt, it takes well over 30 years to reach this belt. The red-and-white coral belt is the second highest belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu.
