Victor’s daughter Kayla received her yellow belt last week at Gracie Humaitá Ilha do Governador from Grandmaster Manoel. Victor surprised her at her promotion ceremony to her delight. The jiu-jitsu circle of knowledge is never-ending.
Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is a constantly evolving martial art with hundreds of attacks, defenses and positions. But the beauty of the art is also in its simplicity. Powerful submissions like the cross-choke exploit weaknesses in human physiology and can be utilized by anyone, from Roger Gracie at the Worlds to Victor’s little girl, Kayla.
Whether it’s your first competition or your hundredth, competing in a brazilian jiu-jitsu tournament is always an exciting experience. Competition allows you to test yourself, assess strengths and weaknesses in your jiu-jitsu game, and it builds a spirit of teamwork and camaraderie.
