Andrew Carter received the rank of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Blue Belt on the first of May. The last few months have been very busy for “Mr” Carter as he passed the Maryland Bar exam, becoming a full-fledged lawyer and now a Crazy 88 BJJ Blue Belt as well. Carter specializes in the guard, causing the several members of the school to nickname his bottom game “the Carter guard”.
Carter won the NAGA World Championships in April 2012 and followed it up with an impressive run at the IBJJF NY Open, which he won as well. He earned his belt on the competition mats despite having a “real” career – this is one of the things we believe at Crazy 88, that there is no need to lower one’s standards because of “circumstances.”
Carter had the following comment on his promotion, “I am herewith returning the stipulation to dismiss in the above entitled matter; the same being duly executed by me.”
