They are coming from Sao Paulo to the world. Besides Murilo Santana, the youngsters João and Paulo Miyao (Cicero Costha) will embark on a new journey in their careers in Jiu-Jitsu. The destination is the cosmopolitan New York City.
The black belt brothers will now train at Unity, a gym located on the east side of Manhattan.
“They (the Miyaos) will only train and I’ll teach classes. João and Paulo will live in New York as athletes and train all day, and follow the classes taught by me. Luiza Monteiro will also live in New York to train for tournaments. For the IBJJF Pan Championship, Leandro Lo already wants to start a camp in NY too. It will be a great time training. Yago Souza, a brown belt from Cicero Costha will also be here,” said Murilo Santana.
“It is important to reinforce that no one is trading teams. The Miyaos will fight for Cicero (Costha) and I will compete for Barbosa, but using the patch from Unity Jiu-Jitsu as well,” said Murilo.
