Bullyproof for Life!!

Revin Evan gets his official Gracie Academy white/yellow belt.
Running the Gauntlet There is a tradition in certain Brazilian jiu jitsu schools called "running the gauntlet", which occurs after you've been promoted. Normally that involves everyone else in the club taking off their belts, forming into two rows, then 'whipping' the newly graded student as they walk (or run) down the middle.
Ouch! Don’t worry.  It really does not hurt.  No one is hitting very hard and you have that thick gi protecting you.  It is a lot of fun for the kids and they usually want to do it again.
Why Run the Gauntlet? For many, belt whipping is a team bonding exercise. It is a way for the club as a whole to celebrate your success: these are the people who have seen you sweat and struggle, overcome your limitations and reach the next level. 
Congratulations! Congratulations to Evan Belcher on his promotion to Gracie White/Yellow belt.  You earned it buddy!
