    It is a kid's belt but... some places give it to adults. That or it was a judo belt... or japanese jiu jitsu belt.

    Remember his name or what he looked like? We have a vale tudo school belt system with orange belt and we are a machado school. I'm not too far from you.

    I don't know how old he was (seemed older than me), but he was a pretty skinny black guy (probably 150-160?). He fought a guy from our school at Macomb Martial Arts Academy in a submission grappling match and lost. That's about all I know about him if you can figure out who he is. He seemed decent from what I watched of him.

    Can you explain your belt system? I am curious.

    Yea, I know who that is.

    Belt series goes something like this with 4 stripes between each. It's a vale tudo school belt system with more of a focus on grappling than striking.

    Yellow
    Orange
    Green
    Blue
    Purple
    Brown
    Black

    I very well could be missing one.

    and yes there are orange belted judoka in the states itr452. couple in my class.

    it's white, yellow, orange, green, brown, black i believe. my instructors almost never gives yellow cause you jump past that so fast to orange.

    it all depends on the school belts dont really mean shit. some bjj schools i have been to do white blue purple brown black. some do white blue brown black etc etc. Personally I think the belt system is stupid all there should be is white brown and black to differentiate the sr students from the noobs and the ones that know what the hell they are doing.

    belt system is just made for marketability
