The most exciting news any program can announce is a promotion to blackbelt. On June 11, 2008 on a visit to Brazil, Paul Ferranti received his blackbelt from longtime instructor and mentor, Professor Alexandre "Grandao" Dos Santos Dantas. With great pride Grandao, a 3rd degree blackbelt under Prof. Castello Branco, removed his own blackbelt and tied it around Paul's waist. Nick Morabito was there to catch the cool shots below.
The entire academy shares in Grandao's pride with Paul's promotion. It has been a long time coming and all of Paul's students who learn from him and roll with him know it is very well deserved!
Congrats Paul on this incredible achievement. Your leadership has reached new levels.
All your students at The Peloton Academy
