At just 17-years old, teenage phenom  Mica Galvao has been awarded his jiu-jitsu black belt by his father Melqui Galvao at their academy in Manaus, Brazil. 

Mica Galvao been lauded as one of the best young prospects to come out of Brazil, and the Fight Sports / Dream Art representative has been submitting black belts since he was 15-years old. His 'early' promotion to black belt (under IBJJF rules he cannot compete at the rank until 18) is reminiscent of when he was promoted to purple belt at just 16 (at this point he was technically too young to compete in the adult divisions).  

However, Mica will not have to wait long until he will be able to compete in the federations events: he turns eighteen this coming October.

The young superstar has already captured two wins at Who's Number One Championships among his numerous accomplishments.  Mica had this to say about his promotion: 

"Arriving where I always dreamed and where everything begins. I thank everyone who was and still are by my side on this journey, without you guys none of this would be possible. Today I received my JIU-JITSU BLACK BELT. WITH 17 YEARS OF AGE I have a RESPONSIBILITY to give nothing less than MY BEST to represent this belt and continue GIVING GOOD EXAMPLES in any way I can for the NEW GENERATION. God bless you all". - Mica Galvao
