2013 Annual Training Trip

Gracie Humaitá Brisbane made their first annual training trip to Rio De Janeiro, Brazil during September. After a few days of hanging out in Dubai the guys touched down in Rio to knuckle down and train for 3 weeks at Gracie Humaitá Centro and Humaitá. The guys were very lucky and their trip coincided with Grandmaster Helio Gracie’s 100th anniversary. A special ceremony was held at Gracie Humaitá with speeches from Red Belts, Coral Belts and Master Rolker Gracie, an amazing experience to say the least.

The guys averaged training 6 hours a day putting in a solid amount of mat time under exceptional instructors such as Master Rolyer Gracie, Professor Duda and Professor Falcao. Everyone learnt more then they expected and some of the students had the privilege of rolling with more then one of the resident Coral Belts.

We all made it back in one piece with almost as many memorable stories as new techniques. Time to start planning for the 2014 Annual Training Trip in Easter!

Below are some photos from the trip, check out our facebook page for an extended gallery.https://www.facebook.com/Gracie.Humaita.Brisbane/media_set?set=a.545595098845703.100001856532511&type=3
