The students at Ocean County Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu were treated to a very special visitor this past Wednesday night. There was a seminar at OCBJJ hosted by the woman, the myth, the legend, Kyra Gracie. OCBJJ was kind enough to invite TheGARV.com to cover this seminar and Kyra Gracie was kind enough to grant us an exclusive interview as well.
Kyra Gracie has won upwards of 21 BJJ/Grappling Championships over the course of her career. This includes 5 World Titles - and she is only 25 years old. Having conquered the world of grappling, Kyra is looking to make an impact in the world of MMA. Gracie will make her debut sometime in 2011. I, for one, will be looking forward to that. I feel the women of MMA do not get the credit and recognition they rightfully deserve. Hopefully we will be able to add Kyra Gracie’s name to that of Cris “Cyborg” Santos and Gina Carano.
