It should come as little surprise that one of the top female submission-grapplers on the planet is a Gracie. A highly-decorated Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu champion with an eye on testing her wares inside a ring, Kyra Gracie is the first of the famed family’s girls to achieve blackbelt status and has done the legendary clan proud with not only her accomplishments on the mat but the way she’s carried herself off of it.

The 26-year old Gracie recently took a trip to Singapore to share her knowledge at a seminar through Evolve MMA, as their gym in Rio de Janeiro hosts her usual training when home in Rio de Janeiro.

Gracie was left with a very positive impression based on what she witnessed while in Singapore, saying, “I was really happy to see how Jiu-Jitsu is going all over the world and to be here in the biggest Jiu-Jitsu and US MMA academy in the whole of Asia. It’s a pleasure for me to be here. I had a lot of fun.”

“I’m very impressed by the level here ”“ that in a short period of time they’ve gotten so good,” she continued. “I want to come here to train ”“ to have a training camp here ”“ so I can learn some Muay Thai.”

The latest stop on her ever-busy schedule comes as one of many relating to a life she’s dedicated to her love of BJJ, a quality instilled in her before she even knew how to say the words “Triangle Choke”.

“I’m a Gracie so when I was born I already had a Gi,” Gracie joked. “I started learning inside my house with all my uncles”¦my uncles Renzo, Ryan, and Ralph, we lived together”¦so it’s something that comes from my family.”

“I love what I do,” Gracie concluded on the passion for her profession. “I love travelling, teaching. Jiu-Jitsu is part of my life. I fight for my family. I fight for my students. I fight to write my history. I fight to be motivation to little girls all over the world.”
