Fairtex BJJ instructor Romulo Melo has just returned from Brazil where he attended a ceremony at Gracie Tijuca and received the first stripe on his black belt. Romulo began his Jiu Jitsu training at the Gracie Tijuca Academy when he was twelve years old. He earned his black belt there under Vinni Aieta and Royler Gracie three years ago. Since then Romulo has taught Jiu Jitsu in the United States, and begun his professional MMA career. Romulo is currently undefeated in his pro career, having earned a 4-0 MMA record. It was a sweet home coming to Gracie Tijuca for this belt ceremony. Romulo was greeted by the entire academy, and all the representative black belts. Vinni Aieta presided over the ceremony, and applied the first strip to Romulo’ Black Belt.

Having returned to the US, Romulo is again teaching Jiu Jitsu at the Fairtex Muaythai Fitness gym in San Francisco. He is preparing for Abu Dhabi trails later this month, and training full time for his first MMA bout of 2011. From everyone at Fairtex, Congratulations Romulo Melo! It’s great to have you back at the gym, and we are excited to witness your success in this new year.
