    I'm pretty sure there aren't any black belts in Nova Scotia. Peter Martell at Titans is a brown under Renzo. I think Rowan Cunningham at Abhaya is also a brown.

    There are a few purples that I know of. The most notable being TJ Grant (FitPlus,) Jake MacKenzie and Chris Hughes (both teach in Truro.)
