Jiu-Jitsu black belt Eric Silver shares his name with a UFC fighter, but the arenas he helps to fill are different ones.
A Rickson Gracie student, Eric is today one of the American composers whose works get played the most at big-time concerts in Brazil, and he’ll be doing a show this Thursday in São Paulo.
A professor in Nashville, the black belt in music has worked with artists the likes of Foo Fighters, Donna Summers and plenty of others. At the very least, he’s a good example of the open-mindedness characteristic of good Jiu-Jitsu practitioners.
