    Maybe you have to petition the heads of the Gracie family to fly a committee in to watch you roll.

    In most places I've heard, a belt can promote another belt to one directly below him.

    Ex, a purple can award a blue belt, a brown a purple, a black a brown, and so forth.

    I heard you get them at the welfare office. It can be a pretty long wait in line. But it takes dedication right?
