Team Gracie Barra in Rio de Janeiro, under the command of Professor Jefferson Moura, is working at full steam to prepare for the two competitions to kick off July 22, the International Masters and the Rio Open.
And the teacher at GB headquarters won’t be watching from the sidelines. There’ll be a double dose of Jeff at the Tijuca Tennis Club.
“I’m going to compete at both the International Masters and the Rio Open. We’ll see if I have the gas it takes to take on the gang competing,” the black belt told GRACIEMAG.com.
And the team heads into the events with a first-rate group.
“We’re training really hard, training hard every day. We’re taking everyone: Kleber Buiú, Paulo Samoa, Felipe Cranivata, Zaganelli and some other burly guys,” he says in closing.
