Soca gave me my black belt on Dec 6th!!!!

My teacher Soca gave me my black belt today. It has been a long journey and I have finally arrived. I've been training Brazilian Jiu-jitsu for over 8 years. To me, obtaining a black belt brings the art to full circle. I will continue to train just as hard as I have been and will strive to the top. Thank you to all my training partners and teachers, especially Soca for believing in me! I only hope to make you all proud next week and bring home victory! I will keep this fire in me burning. My time is now!

Congrats, I'm sure there are few accomplishments in life that will bring you the joy of obtaining your black belt in BJJ. I could only imagine. BTW nice Kimura! That happens to be my favorite submission and it's nice to see it pulled off for once in an MMA match.

Best of luck Phillipe! I know you will go on to do great things. Be ferocious but calculated. You'll get a title shot in 2 years.
