Our GMA member Vinicius “Draculino” Magalhães, leader of Gracie Barra Texas, has decided to leave the USA and go back to Brazil.
In a moving video posted on You Tube and his Facebook page, Draculino explains his reasons for taking the decision.
“Although I love Jiu-Jitsu, I have to put my family first now. I have been overwelmed lately and this is the best decision for the moment.”
Daculino’s absence will not be the end of Gracie Barra Texas. Probably, another GMA member will replace the master.
“My black belt Alberto Crane, who lives in California, will be here”, said Vinicius.
And Draculino himself will be coming and going between Brazil and the US.
“My plan is to be here as many times a year as possible.”
But wait a minute? What day is today? April 1st!
So we talked to Draculino and he told us the truth.
He is not going anywhere! April Fools!
