This week we’re coming at you with a good mix of style, gear, and a special video for the Jiu Jitsu heads. Last week, 8th degree Black Belt and living legend, Rickson Gracie, was promoted to 9th degree Red Belt. This is an extremely rare occurrence in the martial art and something that Rickson didn’t believe he was ready for. Check out the video to see his reaction.

We also found some summer style tips and an article on whether to wear a weight belt or not. It seems like the McGregor/Mayweather hype-train is making its world tour, so we had to include something about the most talked about martial artist at the moment.

Enjoy the week fellas.
