saying that you think belts are given out will nilly at pedro bessa , is imo disrespectful to all of us who train there. brian like to downplay the fact that he got a bluebelt from pedro saying he didnt think he deserved it but that was abig accomplishment for him.
everyone who i have seen graded under pedro has been worthy of the belt. just check the guys out in competition. for a relativley small club in terms of some of the bigger clubs in the UK. we at pedro bessa do very well in competition. showing that belts are earned and well deserved.
