After 16 years of training, Joe Rogan as finally earned his BJJ Blackbelt under Eddie Bravo's 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu.
Speaking via his forum Joe Said:
Thank you, my friends! I was really choked up tonight. I actually cried a little.
I’ve never asked for my black belt, and I’ve been a brown belt for 7 or 8 years, just plugging away working on my game, so this was a real long term accomplishment for me and it felt incredible. I’m on cloud 9 right now. It’s pretty crazy.
It’s a real honor, and it’s really motivated me to train even harder!
For those asking, I started training in 1996 with Carlson Gracie, and then I switched over to Jean Jacques Machado in 98, and I started training with Eddie Bravo in 2000. I still go to Jean Jacques as well, but I spend most of my time at 10th Planet.
