The Mirror gives further details on how friends are helping to remember Walker stating:
Paul’s Jiu-Jitsu teacher Ricardo Miller, who guided him in the combat sport for nine years while working on the ‘Fast & Furious’ films, has commemorated his late friend by bestowing him with an honorary black belt.
Miller wrote on his website:
Paul was determined to become a black belt. He said, ‘I will get my black belt, even if I need to get it in my coffin.’ Now in the wake of his death, I would like to reward Paul Walker the black belt that he wanted so much during his life.
