Russel Brand received his blue belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu this week! There was a lot of controversy surrounding this event, as there is when ever a person with celebrity status receives a belt promotion. The underground chatter was very much split with many fully appreciating the team at RGA Bucks and instructor Kev Capel‘s ability to assess and grade Russels, whilst others were not.
Brand has previously spoken out on the benefits that Brazilian Jiu Jitsu has given him both physically and mentally. And over the last few years he has joined the ever growing club of celebrity advocated for BJJ.
