MMDE: Elvis was a black belt

Current: Elvis was not a black belt

Records today show Elvis trained with Muhammad Ali and Bruce Lee, and reached the 7th degree.

This surprises many, including life long Elvis fans, because every detail of his life is thought to be common and widespread knowledge by now. Those caught out are pointing to the Mandela Effect as the cause for this news "suddenly" appearing from nowhere.

He was awarded his 7th degree black belt in 1972, and went on to teach kenpo at the Pasaryu Karate Association. The similarity to the white fighting suits he wore and the later high collared ones in his Vegas years is striking too.

Army

Elvis first began karate in the Army in 1958, when he was stationed in Germany.
