Black Belt List

Receiving a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is the ultimate goal. In most cases, it takes more than a decade of hard work, and countless hours spent on the mat. The men and women on this list have all achieved the prestigious rank of jiu-jitsu black belt in the state of Ohio.

I would like to be added to the Black Belt list. I was promoted by Eduardo Barros on 12/18/2016. My name is Jason Williard and I’m the head BJJ Instructor at Ogura Martial Arts. Thank you.
