Great day of surf and more

Today was a great day! Good surfing with friends including Master Royler Gracie, then enjoyed the rest of the day with the bro's (after working of course). Weather in San Diego has been great, more like summer than winter. Can't believe everyone doesn't move here.

My elbow is feeling strong and almost 100%. Soon I'll be back giving hell to my training partners and to my Ginastica Natural athletes. "Da Boyz" better be ready for some hard workouts . . . .

Rubens Charles "Cobrinha" Interview

Rubens Charles Maciel "Cobrinha" 2009 Worlds all Photos (c) Kid Peligro

Many years ago during one of his visits then World Champion and Co-leader of "TT" academy Fernando "Terere" told me: "Kid, I have a new student that is going to be the next big thing! He is going to be a World Champion, his name is "Cobrinha". I was later that year introduced to "Cobrinha" in Rio during the Worlds. Well "Terere's" prediction turned out to be true, 4 times true as "Cobrinha" dominated the division and won the World title that many times along with several Pan and other titles.

"Cobrinha" had great fortune to train and learn from "Terere", then Fabio Gurgel and Alliance leader Romero "Jacare" Cavalcanti. After spending 3 years int eh main Alliance Academy in Atlanta, "Cobrinha" is seeking new heights as he moved to L.A., California to open hi own academy.

The one you've been waiting for - Roger Gracie Interview

Roger Gracie Abs

Roger Gracie Interview
The name Roger Gracie conjures up images of great matches, dramatic finals and especially submission wins. Roger has been competing and winning in JJ for many years; with an unprecedented record of 8 consecutive finals in the Black Belt Worlds Absolute (with 3 wins). Roger has numerous submission wins in both JJ and submission grappling  including a stellar performance in 2005 ADCC in LA, where he submitted all 8 opponents on the way to winning the weight and absolute titles.

Over that period Roger has arguably been the best in the World in BJJ and ADCC. Now Roger is re-igniting his MMA career at full speed in Strikeforce. Check out what the 3 times World Absolute BJJ Champion and ADCC Absolute Champion had to say:

KP- In 2010 you conquered what no one else had done before, winning the 3rd World BJJ Absolute title. What did that represent to you?

RG: To be honest it didn't represent much, of course I am very happy to have conquered those titles but what really makes me happy is to enter the arena and face the best fighters in the world. And to realize that something that I've dedicated my entire life to is showing results. The titles are a consequence of that and are on a secondary plane. You have to look forward and leave past achievements in the past. Maybe when I retire I can look back and see what I've accomplished but until then there is a lot more ground to cover (laughs) (read more)

Rio needs your help: Top BJJ'ers and Judoca helping Flood victims and ask for a hand

Having been away living in the USA for many decades I get distant sometimes from the occurrences in my home Country. I watched the news of the floods and devastation in Rio and remember back in the days growing up there when similar situations occurred and I and my wife to be, witnessed first hand the damage. So when this last flood happened I was saddened but it didn't hit me as hard as it should have, but when my friends come to me with somber voices I realize the magnitude of the tragedy. I remember the song from George Harrison about the famine in Bangladesh: My friend came to me with sadness in his eyes, he said he wanted help before his Country died. Although I couldn't feel the pain, I knew I had to try .. . now I'm asking all of you to help him save some lives" . . . I'm well aware that the tragedy in Rio pales in comparison to Bangladesh 's however for the people that are suffering and those who are trying to help, the feeling is the same. So I'm asking you for help: (There are two articles below plus a portuguese version so make sure to scroll down and read both please)

Rickson, Royler and Flavio Canto Seminar to help the victims

When watching the drama facing thousands in the "Região Serrana" in Rio de Janeiro, the fight community is mobilizing and joining in with their solidarity and strength.

Next Wednesday, January 19th at 8:30 PM at the Escola de Educação Física do Exército, in Urca, three fighting icons are performing a unique seminar. Rickson Gracie, hte great Jiu-Jitsu champion, his brother Royler Gracie will join Olympic medalist Flavio Canto for a seminar to help the victims of the tragedy and the newly homeless from Região Serrana do Estado do Rio de Janeiro.

" The idea is to have much more than a technical seminar. Our objective is to mobilize the martial arts community, fraternize and have the opportunity to see old friends so we can join and help the thousands that are suffering from this tragedy that ravaged the cities of Teresópolis, Petrópolis and Nova Friburgo.", stated Royler.

"The "fee" for the seminar is a minimum of 5KG of non-perishable food per person. Our challenge and expectation is to collect over a ton of food." added Judoca Flávio Canto.

"It is extremely important for all practitioners, independent of the martial art they represent, or which academy they go, to appear and make the sport of fighting the tool to help society" completed Rickson.

Since the above seminar is mostly directed to the Brazilian crowd I am posting the original version in Portuguese:

Diante do drama vivido por milhares de pessoas na Região Serrana do Rio de Janeiro, a comunidade da luta pretende dar uma demonstração de força e solidariedade.

O grande campeão de Jiu-Jitsu Rickson Gracie, seu irmão e tetra-campeão mundial de Jiu-Jitsu Royler Gracie, se encontram com o medalhista olímpico de Judô Flávio Canto para um seminário em favor dos desabrigados na Região Serrana do Estado do Rio de Janeiro.

"Dear friends – MMA friends and everybody – I'm talking to you guys from Nova Friburgo in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil," Davis said. "It's my hometown. I can't even begin to explain to you what's happened here. There are entire regions that have been wiped out. Thousands of people are without water and food. Hundreds of people, if not thousands, are buried under mudslides so deep that they will never be found. Whole families have been wiped out. It's to the point that there may be no one left to even remind us that these people were once there.

European 2011 Explodes

Word from the IBJJF is that the European 2011 has surpassed 1000 competitors.This not only confirms that the European has become one of the crown jewels of the international circuit but also confirms the strength of BJJ in Europe. The crown jewels in my opinion are: Worlds, Pan, European, Brazilian Nationals and the Asian. At some point one would think a World ranking would be developed and presented by the IBJJF.

Marcelo Garcia Interview

Marcelo Garcia Academy

Marcelo Garcia needs no introduction, the phenomenal BJJ and Submission grappling practitioner/instructor first burst in the international scene in 2003 by winning ADCC. Marcelo entered the tournament as a virtual unknown (outside Brazil) as a last minute alternate replacement. Since then Garcia won 2 more ADCC titles ('05 and '07) and numerous World BJJ titles. Garcia has a strong following both as a competitor and instructor.

Besides being a super nice guy Garcia's smile and attitude has set him as a very reachable and likable person. But that all changes when you face him on the mat as Garcia usual style is to go for the kill. Since moving to New York City from his native Brazil, Garcia opened and academy and an on-line training while still managing to compete in most major events.

We caught up with Garcia recently after he found time in his busy schedule that has only gotten busier with the remodeling of the academy

KP- What have you been working on lately?

MG-I really have been focusing on my school, my students, because the school and website are related the better the first gets the better the website will be, I really don't even think that I am being filmed, is just my normal regular class so it makes it more natural, and I am really happy with the results so far.

The Interview: Fernando Augusto Da Silva "Terere"

Terere in Worlds 04

Fernando Augusto Da Silva, "Terere" was a man that inspired many. Growing up in the slums of Cantagalo, "Terere" found in Jiu-Jitsu an escape and an inspiration to glory. After joining Alliance Team with Octavio Couto, Terere kept improving and impressing until he got his Black Belt under Alexandre  "Gigi" Paiva. Terere burst into the competitive scene like a rocket, victories over then Absolute Champion Marcio "Pe de Pano" Cruz in the National titles and his first Black Belt title in '00 over "Nino" Schembri made everyone notice the electric middle weight from Cantagalo. In 2003 "Terere" defeated Marcelo Garcia to reach his second World title. At that time, already a legend in his community and an inspiration to many, Terere was reaching stride. His matches were always exciting and a crowd favorite. His demeanor and smile made him a favorite of most everyone. When Terere entered the mats he was cheered with the chant: "Huh Terere! Huh Terere!"
