Chris Paines is most certainly a black belt.  He has the infinite hunger for growth and complete disregard for comfort and safety.  I have rolled with him, taught with him at Globetrotters camps, and booked him to teach in both the USA and Israel.

Chris P is pure awesome. Excellent teacher, terrifying grappler. I still haven't recovered from rolling with him when he was a blue belt, traumatised for life. <img src="/img/smileys/tongue.png" alt=":P" width="16" height="16" style="margin-top: -3px;"/>
