Open minded Fabio Leopoldo holds a seminar at Gracie Morumbi

Tue, 2014-04-15 17:59

You have to admire Fabio Leopoldo. The leader of Gracie Morumbi academy is a former World Champion but still keeps the open mind knowing that everyone has something to show, and he wants to learn. To prove the point Fabio hosted a seminar at his academy conducted by one of his students. Kai Ellison is a Blue belt under Fabio with a penchant for taking the back and using the berimbolo with great efficiency, so Fabio thought it would be a great idea to have Kai share his knowledge at Gracie Morumbi. Other students at the academy felt the same way as 8 Black belts showed up and attended the seminar to learn from Kai.

I remember someone wise saying "Be open to learning. Always keep the mind set of the white belt who is eager to absorb everything."

Kid usually stays away from announcing Black belt promotions as I get so many requests it would be all I'd do :) but when it involves Grandmaster Relson Gracie promoting friends of mine I have to make an exception. The Grandmaster promoted Brandon Bernardino, Kyle Snyder-Olivares and Rob Moss to Black belt rank and awarded Kaleo Hosaka his 1st Degree.

Congratulations to all and to my friend Kevin Tang for his Brown belt! Well deserved everyone

Metamoris 3 - What a show!!!

Sun, 2014-03-30 09:51
Metamoris 3 went down yesterday in LA, California. The event made everyone forget about the disappointment of the #2. Every one that attended or watched the webcast was treated to six great matches with lots of action and drama. Fighters were going for it and the main event was a barn burner with Eddie Bravo and Royler Gracie demonstrating their stuff. Deb Blyth from Jiu-Jitsu Magazine put it perfectly in her Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/deb.blyth.3 :
"Metamoris 3 was the best yet. It was a great card all around and the Royler Gracie vs Eddie Bravo headliner lived up to the hype...and more. I'm so glad I got to witness that historical event in person for Jiu-Jitsu Magazine...my heart was pounding - it was so exciting watching the unorthodox try to work over the fundamentals and the fundamental defense holding off the unorthodox, unpredictable aggressive offensive. Their cardio levels were so impressive...they went all out for 20 minutes, never backing off or taking a break...old school Jiu-Jitsu legends brought back to present day in a very vibrant, colorful, and youthful way, showcasing 2 very different styles of Jiu-Jitsu, the old and the new...I haven't been that caught up in the excitement and adrenaline of a match in a long time! I hope they go for a 3rd rematch.."
 (All photos by Metamoris event).
Results:
Zak Maxwell and Sean Roberts - Draw 
Gui Mendes v Samir Chantre - Gui by choke
Dean Lister v Renato Babalu - Draw
Keen Cornelius v Kevin Casey (last minute substitute as Vinny Magalhaes failed medical exam w. staff infection - Keenan by heel hook
