Professor Ricardo Cavalcanti held recently a major graduation ceremony at his school in Las Vegas, Nevada.
He gathered over 300 people and awarded 158 of them with new belts or degrees.
Cavalcanti’s son Rômulo and wife Frances were in the mix.
Rômulo received his brown belt and the Frances got her blue belt.
Other than that, two times world no-gi champion Taylor Leonard is now a purple belt.
Cavalcanti also gave a new belt to his granddaughter, Anna Braqndon, now a grey and white 5 year old fighter.
The party was complete with some Brazilian barbeqeue and the visit of Santa Jiu-Jitsu Noel, as Cavalcanti called the jolly old man.
The Professor was very proud of his team:’Last time we promoted 100 students, this time 158 and next time will be 200 for sure.”
