The world famous chef and TV show host, Anthony Bourdain, was in Rio de Janeiro for one of the episodes of his No Reservations “Final Tour” season.

After the traditional coconut water, walks on the beach, some “feijoada” and Açaí, Bourdain dropped by Gracie Barra’s headquarters.

Bourdain himself did not put the gi on, but his wife, Ottavia, who trains in NYC with Igor Gracie and is a white belt, decides to take on a challenge against a Brazilian blue belt.

Watch how she does and get a sense of the atmosphere at the hometown of Jiu-Jitsu.
