Professor Pereira Talks Belt Promotions and His Own Promotion to Black Belt

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is known to have the most conservative belt promotion philosophy in martial arts, and the most subjective. In this Question of the Week, Marcelo Pereira talks about why he conducts belt tests prior to promoting his students, and tells the story of how he received his black belt just before the 1998 Mundials.

The picture above is Marcelo on the winner’s stand after winning the Mundials as a black belt the same year.
