The arm-collecting judoka who owns the UFC title belt for the female division, Ronda Rousey doesn’t pass up a chance to hone her style with Jiu-Jitsu black belts.

In Torrance, Calif., the winsome fighter made sure to drop in on the Gracie Academy for some training in the lead-up to her encounter with Liz Carmoush in the UFC 157 main event in California this coming Feb. 23.

Rousey made the most of a pause in training with Professor Ryron Gracie to blow a little kiss to Grandmaster Helio Gracie.
