Nicky Ryan And Ethan Crelinsten Earn Black Belts

Two of the top competitors from Renzo Gracie Academy, Nicky Ryan and Ethan Crelinsten, was promoted to black belt by John Danaher earlier today.

Gordon Ryan shared the news on social media:

“I finally dont have to feel so bad when i have tough rounds with @nickyryanbjj and @ethan.crelinsten. These guys have transformed over the last few years, from tough kids to legitimate world beaters. We wouldn’t be able to do the things we do without @danaherjohn and @heysonnyy2. congrats on the black belt guys.”

Crelinsten and the younger Ryan brother (who was promoted to brown belt just over a year ago) have long been two of the top competitors from the Renzo Gracie team. Both are ADCC veterans with big wins to their names in submission grappling.
