#FAIXAPRETA | #BLACKBELT —> Difícil colocar em palavras a felicidade que estou passando nesse momento. Receber minha faixa preta das mãos desses dois caras que são os ídolos em que eu sempre me inspirei e que também são os caras que mais acreditaram em mim, sem dúvida alguma é o sentimento mais gratificante que eu já senti até hoje. Ainda não caiu a ficha, mas posso dizer que tem muito ainda pra vir. Chegou a hora de me jogar no meio dos melhores atletas do planeta pra buscar o que eu quero. Muito obrigado meu Deus, minha família, meus amigos e companheiros que sabem o tanto eu ralei pra chegar até aqui.The big day has arrived. I got my black belt from my professors @romulobarral & @felipepenabjj after winning my second IBJJF Nogi World title and 3rd overall. I can’t thank these two enough for putting so much belief and work on me over the years. Thanks my family, friends and teammates who know how hard I work to get where I want to be. The journey has just began! #blackbelt #TRB #FPTEAM #barralstyle #pregstyle #churchboyz #Graciebarra #GBBH Gracie Barra NorthridgeGracie Barra Jiu JitsuFelipe “Preguiça” Team

What a debut yesterday! Winning Double-Gold at my first IBJJF tournament after all the crazy fights I had. Gained a lot more experience for the next season ahead. Thanks God and everyone around me for the constant support as always. That’s it for 2015, it’s been an outstanding year and I’m happy I’m finishing it the best way possible.
