Carlson Gracie black belt and co-founder of the Revolution BJJ team, Rodrigo Medeiros just finished his seminar at Samuel Puccio's BJJ. Rodrigo has only given out ten black belts since he has been teaching and the tenth went to Samuel Puccio today! Alabama now has a BJJ black belt (please forgive me if there are others that I am unaware of).
Also, Dr. John, who has competed and medaled several times at the Pan Ams and who intends to compete in the Mundials this year received his brown belt.
George (Kim, I think is his last name) got his blue belt. For some reason, I got my purple.
CONGRATS TO SAMUEL!
