Farewell to Grandmaster Armando Wriedt, dead at 94

A reference in BJJ and one of seven students to have received the red belt from the hands of Helio Gracie, Grandmaster Armando Wriedt died this Thursday, August 29, as reported on social media by black-belt Ataíde Jr, leader of Constrictor Team.

Wriedt, who would turn 95 in October, had the teaching of BJJ as his pastime. Even with limitations to what his body was able to do in his old age, he was always matside with his trusty cane, pointing out details and offering advice to those who visited him in Brasilia.

Our best wishes to his legion of friends, family and students.
