Marcelo Garcia added three new black belts to his team.
After great showing at the New York Spring Open last weekend, Matheus Diniz, Mansher Khera and Dillon Danis were surprised with the new belt this Monday.
“I still do not believe. Very happy, for sure one of the happiest days of my life. Black belt,” wrote Diniz on his Facebook page.
With the promotion, the trio have a little over one month to score 50pts on the IBJJF ranking to be able to compete in the 2015 Worlds as black belts.
As they changed belts, all their points from the brown belt are wasted and as they didn’t win their divisions at the 2014 Worlds as brown belts they do not have secured spots in the 2015 Worlds black belt division.
