This Friday, Alliance São Paulo hosted a special guest for No-Gi training.
Team leader Fabio Gurgel spoke with GRACIEMAG.com about catching up with Fernando Tererê again.
“Tererê has been training at Alliance Rio with [Alexandre Paiva] Gigi regularly, and he’s been in contact with us over the last few years while undergoing the recovery process. Now he’s showing results. He’s doing fine and will soon open his own academy in Rio to do what he knows best,” said Gurgel.
“It was really great to have him on the mat again and get to roll with one of the best that has ever been through here. I’m hoping it will happen more and more, and that Tererê wins this battle of his once and for all. I saw the GRACIEMAG Facebook page getting all kinds of hits with our photo. The kid really is beloved,” said Professor Gurgel in praise.
