FT Jiu Jitsu is getting ready to head down to Sao Paulo to compete in Brasileiros for the second year in a row. Last year Professor Fabricio, Nico Ball, Moleza, and Moicano traveled Sao Paulo and stayed with Vanderli “Alemao” Silva, who trained with Terere and Telles at the TT academy. This year we will be returning with 8 sponsored athletes, making this one of the biggest trips that TKP has been able to sponsor for our kids!
Moleza with a friend from Academia Gorila
who was visiting from Poland.
Both Moicano and Moleza will be returning to Sao Paulo for the second time but this year they will be accompanied by Caio Marques a 14-year-old yellow belt and Pretinha Santos, one of the few girls to represent FT JiuJitsu on the mats. Although both Caio and Pretinha have been training for a relatively short amount of time, they have both been winning local competitions with ease!
Fabricio will be taking 4 students from the kid’s class, including Terere’s two nephews. They are excited about the opportunity to take them with us because they will be traveling outside of Rio for the first time ever!
