10th Planet prodigy Grace Gundrum has been proving she’s in a league of her own for years now, and now, she’s got the belt to prove it.
Following her action-packed match and subsequent overtime victory over Renzo Gracie/ Silver Fox black belt Danielle Kelly tonight at Eddie Bravo’s Jiu-Jitsu Overtime event, Gundrum earned her own black belt. Eddie Bravo himself presented her with the honor.
10th Planet black belt Brandon McCaghren shared a video of the special moment:
Gundrum has racked up a number of significant accomplishments as both a teen and pre-teen, having fought to a draw against four-time black belt world champion Rikako Yuasa and scoring wins against other decorated athletes like Jessa Khan and Alyssa Wilson. Hopefully her new rank will open up the door for even more worthy competitive opportunities for this young star.
