Fabio Gurgel had a very special evening this Wednesday, Oct. 23, at the Alliance HQ in São Paulo, Brazil.
The co-founder and co-leader of the eagle team reached the sixth degree in his black belt.
The new stripe came from the hands of Alexandre “Gigi” Paiva at a packed ceremony.
Fabio wrote about it on his Facebook page.
“I received the sixth degree in my black belt tonight from the hands of my friend Gigi. Thanks Master Romero Jacaré for the touching speech and for all the teachings. Also thanks to all that were present tonight. I have no words to say how thankful I am”.
Fabio Gurgel have been a black belt for 24 years.
