Barack Obama receives his Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Blue Belt from Professor Alberto Crane at his Gracie Barra Burbank Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu & Mixed Martial Arts Academy. In case you don’t know, a Blue belt is the next belt up from the lowest belt, the white belt. A blue belt from a legitimate school is a sign that you can officially tap out the newbies with ease. Don’t be fooled, because even a white belt in the later stages can easily handle the untrained.
After studying Taekwondo for 4 years during his term as junior senator in Illinois, U.S. President Barack Obama earned a green belt and in 2009 was awarded an honor black belt by South Korean President Lee Myung-Bak. Despite his reputation as being soft, along with his horrendous pitch, he is a trained martial artist.
