Most guys who read this site (and probably some chicks too) wake up every morning much the same way that I do: Thinking about Kyra Gracie. You don’t have to admit it, you know who you are. It’s hard to remember the days before I knew she existed. I’d like to think I used to live a meaningful life back then, but I was probably just wasting my potential playing Halo. It happens.
Kyra Gracie is the sole reason I ever set foot in Renzo Gracie’s gym. When I found out she didn’t hang out there teaching Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu with her uncle, I promptly went home and continued googling photos of her. That’s how I found these photos of her training for her MMA Debut in 2011:
“I started to train boxing because I want to fight MMA and no one better than Claudio Coelho to be my master”, said, clearing her priorities. “My focus is still the Jiu-Jitsu, and my biggest goal this year is the Worlds, but my goal is to keep training more boxing so next year I can debut on MMA”, said Gracie.
Much like ever professor I’ve ever had, her trainer says she has boatloads of potential. I wonder if she’s any good at Halo…I’ll bet that’s the only way I could beat her at anything. Even then, I’d probably let her win, then make her a sandwich. I’d never want Renzo on my bad side. [Source]
