It isn’t everyday that you get to be close to a living legend, and when it happens it is always special. This past Saturday, thanks to Black Belt Ricardo Alvarez who organized a Brazilian Barbeque at his mountain resort near the City of Petropolis, a group from the Gracie Humaita academy was able to share some laughs and stories with Grandmaster Helio Gracie. The crew comprised of Vini Aieta, Breno Sivak, Kid and Mrs. Peligro, Eduardo Manno, Carlolfo Collor, Paulo Basilio and Nicolas Porte spent a few precious hours with the Grandmaster as he shared stories and his wisdom.
A big thanks to Ricardo for the great day!
