GMA member school Renzo Gracie Weston, in Florida, received a very special visit last weekend.
RG Weston leader Stan Beck welcomed UFC fighter and also-GMA member Ricardo “Cachorrão” Almeida for two days of seminars.
The weekend could not have gone better. Here’s what Stan wrote on the academy’s website: “Everyone had a blast this past weekend training with Ricardo “Big Dog” Almeida. On Friday night Ricardo joined the advanced adult class for a no-gi sparring class that brought everyone in. For sure it was the most packed no gi Friday night class we’ve ever had. He trained with a bunch of the students which I am sure they will remember forever.”
Beck continues:”We also had several of my Black Belt friends come in and join in for the fun. Then Saturday was the big event. The mats were packed as everyone learned a bunch of new techniques. As humble as Ricardo is, it was evident why he is a UFC welterweight contender for the title. I am sure that when he fights Matt Hughes in less then 3 weeks in the UFC that there will be a huge group of us cheering him on as we gather at the Carolina Ale House. Go get him Ricardo!”
Here awesome pictures of the event.
