Reality TV star Spencer Pratt kept the gauntlet-running tradition alive when he was promoted to BJJ brown belt.
After shaking hands with his instructors, Pratt threw off his gi top, laced his fingers behind his head, and walked within a circular path twice as his fellow students whipped his bare back.
Yes, the reality TV star winced as those thick belts lashed him from behind, but Pratt took his punishment like a champ, and he was even caught smiling at times.
Spencer Pratt made headlines within the jiu-jitsu community when he won gold at the Abu Dhabi Grand Slam earlier this year.
Let’s see how well he does competing as a brown belt.
