GMA member Ricardo Cavalcanti was recently in Guatemala to attend MMA event Shinzo.
The event had the presence of MMA stars such as Stephan Bonnar , Phil Baroni, Ivan Salaverry, Mauricie Smith, Stephan Quadros and Nick Blongren.
The event received wide attention from the local media and a delegation was invited to the Presidential Palace to meet with Guatemala’s Culture Minister.
Ricardo, who is the leader of Cavalcanti BJJ – Carlson Gracie Las Vegas, also took part of an autograph signing in a shopping center, where he was amazed with how Guatemalans know Jiu-Jitsu: “People would shout the phrase ‘Nothing is more important than Jiu-Jitsu.'”
At the end, Ricardo promised to go back to Guatemala to teach a free BJJ seminar next December, when Shinzo 2 will take place.
