Kid Peligro and RVCA

I am stoked to become a "RVCA advocate". RVCA is a company that focuses on the lifestyle that I live and love: surfing, training and Jiu-Jitsu and has been a home to my good friends like Makua Rothman, Kala Alexander, Danny Fuller, Mendes brothers and Marcus "Buchecha" so I already feel right at home.

Kid Peligro in Tallahassee, Florida

Kid Peligro is going to visit his long time friend Felipe "Zicro" Neto at his amazing "Zicro" Academy in Tallahassee, Florida and conduct a special class. Felipe is a Romero "Jacare" Black Belt and one of the top instructors around (I had many classes with him back in the day).

For more info on his academy go to http://www.zicrobjj.com/

Here is his announcement for the event:

Kid Peligro Special Class
Wednesday, June 11, 2014 - 6:00PM @ ZicroAcademy

Kid Peligro was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Growing up as a surfing enthusiast in the beaches of the South area of Brazil, also known as “Zona Sul”. Though Kid dabbled with other martial arts such as Kempo, reaching the degree of brown belt in this Chinese style, it was Brazilian Jiu Jitsu who really captured Kid Peligro’s attention, and once he started training, he never stopped.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu appeared in Kid Peligro’s life through a friend named Carlos Gama. Carlos trained BJJ and insisted (almost forced) so much that Peligro ended up giving in and joining Carlos to class. Kid Peligro trained under Nelson Monteiro until he was a purple belt, later moving coaches to train under Royler Gracie’s academy who awarded him both his brown and black belts (black belt in 2000).

Through Jiu Jitsu Kid Peligro met and befriended the famous Abu Dabhi Sheik, Mr Tahnoon Bin Zayed. It was Sheik Tahnoon who invited Kid Peligro to write for the Abu Dabhi Combat Club website (www.adcombat.com), in 1998, the organization behind the ADCC, the world’s most important No Gi tournament. Kid Peligro quickly became a regular writer for the website, and his reputation as a reliable source of BJJ information developed from there.

Kid Peligro is also a capable Ginastica Natural instructor, having learned this famous form of exercise, practiced by many of Jiu Jitsu’s greatest fighters, from the creator of Ginastica Natural himself, Mr Alvaro Romano one of Peligro’s childhood friends.

Another interesting fact in Mr Peligro’s life, is that his wife started practicing BJJ after the two got married. She became very involved with Jiu Jitsu having earned her black belt degree.

Andre Galvao: My Journey

Sat, 2014-06-07 22:36

Not too many people knew about this situation that Andre Galvao went through. I clearly remember getting the phone call in the middle of the night and going to the hospital to pick them up. Andre and Angelica had only the clothes on their back. He and Angelica had lost everything! Everything!!!!

We came to my house from the hospital and I gave Andre some of my surf clothes so he'd have something to wear. Obviously it didn't fit him very well : )  Then after something like three hours we drove back to the house and with flashlights looked for anything that had survived the fire and after looking at this burned out everything we found their passports inside his Bible. Crazy but true.

Anyways listen to Andre tell the story here
