Kyra Gracie is going to teach her Jiu-Jitsu in Miami for the first time, a great opportunity for practitioners living nearby. The Gracie will be at Carlson Gracie Miami for a seminar open to people of all academies, on Friday, March 19, at 9 am.
Before traveling to the U.S., the black belt got involved in the campaign to help raise funds for troubled fighter Fernando Tererê, who is hospitalized in a rehabilitation clinic in Sao Paulo. The fighter autographed a brand new gi and is putting it to auction.
