Sad and unexpected news for the BJJ and acting community this Saturday.
Actor and BJJ brown belt Paul Walker passed away after a car accident in Santa Clarita, California.
The star of the series “Fast and Furious” was said to be returning from a charity event when the car he was riding as a passenger hit a tree and caught on fire.
Walker trained with Paragon BJJ leader and GMA member Ricardo “Franjinha” Miller.
Recently, GRACIEMAG.com posted on how Franjinha was helping Walker to prepare for a upcoming action movie entitled “Brick Mansions”.
Franjinha posted on Facebook his reaction to the unexpected sad news: “No words can describe my feeling right now, just RIP Bro. Your kindness and friendship will be missed. I just can’t believed it. But, I want to thank you for the great times and memories that we shared together. I will Never forget It. Go in peace my friend.”
The GRACIEMAG team joins in the thoughts and prayers to Walker’s family and friends in this terrible moment.
