Hip Hop Master Rakaa Iriscience (Dialated Peoples) Interview

Rakaa Press
Interview by Kid Peligro - All Photos by Trevor Traynor

Rakaa Iriscience Interview -  Hip Hop Master Rakaa Iriscience talks music and BJJ
Rakaa Iriscience (Dialated Peoples) has been practicing BJJ for quite a few years and he finds time between his music creation and concert etc to train BJJ. Recently Rakaa launched his solo album "Crown of Thorns", so we got a hold of the Hip Hop Master to find out "What's up?"


KP -
What got you into BJJ?
RI- I studied a few different arts off and on since I was kid but nothing really stuck. Like almost everyone else outside of Brazil and Japan, I first encountered Gracie Jiu Jitsu (now often referred to as Brazilian Jiu Jitsu) by watching Royce shock the world at the first UFC. A friend of mine began training and showing me a few things. I took advantage of an offer for a free introductory class and never stopped going. The Gracie’s are good friends of mine… I consider them family.

KP -
When did you start and where? How long have you been training?
RI-  I started in early 2000, but I tour year round, so I have not been nearly as consistent as I should. It also gets easier to miss classes with each one missed. I’m definitely not a pro fighter, and I have no ambitions of turning pro, but that doesn’t excuse my laziness about training. I’m just getting back into the swing of things… Most of it is like riding a bike at this point, but the details are most important in GJJ/BJJ. I need to practice to make sure I am dealing with those devils in the details.(read more)

Ultimate Gracie Feedback - 2 New BBs in Alaska - JJPro Gear Open and more

Kid Peligro 200x200.jpg

Ultimate Gracie is a big hit
The Ultimate Gracie Special from UFC productions on Spike TV was a big hit. The Special featured the efforts and history of Royce Gracie since his UFC 1 debut and his MMA career. The program was a big hit amongst MMA fans and of course Gracie Jiu-Jitsu practitioners and afficionados. Kid Peligro received an incredible amount of text messages, tweets and phone calls all with 100% positive feedback.

Look for repeat dates on Spike


2 new Tinguinha black belts from Alaska!!!!!!!!

Last Saturday,September 11th Professor Tinguinha awarded two new TBJJ Black Belts, Justin Charon and Todd Palmer from the Tinguinha BJJ Affiliated school- The Anchorage BJJ School. Justin and Todd have been training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for more than 15 years, of sweat and dedication on the mat. " It was an honor for me to graduate these two great guys to the Black Belt. It is supposedly the goal of every BJJ practitioner to be a black belt and it is an accomplishment for those who achieve it but it is beyond submissions and attacks on the mat. It is about honor, respect, discipline, honesty and loyalty. I am confident to say Justin and Todd are true BJJ practitioner and now they have the mission to represent our martial art. I congratulate them for their accomplishment, it was well deserved. Let's keep Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu alive and strong." - Mauricio "Tinguinha". (read more)

How times have changed: Ultimate Gracie - Robert Lovi, Soca BJJ and Michigan Open


Royce kicks Jamison

How Times have changed
Tonight after UFN22, Spike Channel is airing a special called: "Ultimate Gracie". Ultimate Gracie focuses on the legendary Royce Gracie, the man whose performance in the first UFC's years ago (along with the efforts of his incredible family and many others) changed the face of Martial Arts in the World and launched MMA as it is now and propelled BJJ to a popularity never before seen. For those of us who have were around before UFC 1 in 1993, it is astounding to see the progress. Just back in '93 you could count in your hands the number of academies in the US. Black Belt instructors were so hard to find, yours truly, Kid Peligro, would drive 40 minutes twice a week to train with one (Nelson Monteiro)  and 1 1/2 hours once a week to train with another (Rickson Gracie) .

“Desert Force is a name we came up with for this MMA event, inspired by the vast majority of the Middle East and the Arab Peninsula Landscape.  The desert like its people are known for the tough conditions it provides.  People that grow up in the Desert are just like MMA fighters.  They are aware of the difficulties and sacrifices they suffer in their day-to-day lives.  We want to show the world the power of the people in this region”, informs the Brazilian raised Black Belt.
