#AlexOLoughlin goes Brown – #BJJ Brown Belt

Feels like yesterday when we first saw the footage of Alex getting  his Blue Belt in Brazillian Jiu Jitsu in June 2012, and now it is 7 years later and obviously a lot of hard work for him between then and now, to get to his Brown Belt advancement.

He was promoted to Purple Belt 0n 15 August 2015 and his progress in the sport showed how he worked hard at it, through every level of stripes, even while recovering from his back injury in 2017.

Yesterday was another day of JiuJitsu belt testing and belt advancement at Egan’s GrapplingUnlimited in Hawaii.

Congratulations to everybody who participated and graduated to a new level – especially Alex!

Thank you  to all those who posted footage of the event!

Another notable promotion today was Alex O’Loughlin getting promoted to Brown Belt by Master Egan Inoue. Got to take a pic with the Hawaii 5-0 star after the ceremony this morning.

  1. It’s so great that Alex is enjoying and excelling in bjj. His level of fitness is impressive. Love that we got to see a picture of Lion. He is a beautiful kid — looks a lot like his dad!

    Congratulations to Alex! I love to see pics of him outside of work. Lion is so cute. Thanks for this blog.


  3. That BIG boy is Lion? Wow, time flies! I’m proud of our Alex. Getting a brown belt with his injured back says much about his stamina. I hope the ritual of the passageway with fellows flogging him with their belts was only noisy, not painful. It seems so real!

    Caminhando seguro para a faixa preta☺ Seu menino é lindo, parece ter o sorriso do pai.
    Saúde e que tudo de bom lhes aconteça🎶🎻

    I’m so proud of Alex he always seems to amaze me all the time so happy that he is so passionate at something that he enjoys doing when he’s not on show


  6. Claudia

    What a lovely little boy with the same smile as his father.


  7. Getting a brown belt after just round about 8 years is pretty impressive, esp. taking into account his tight schedule and his shoulder injury. This man is really determined. “[…] I’ve always done it with all of my heart. I don’t know how to do it any other way.”
