Just a quick heads up for those who don’t follow us on Twitter: On Episode 191 of The FightWorks Podcast (that’s Sunday!), Rener Gracie responds to the statements made by his uncle Renzo Gracie. Renzo’s impassioned comments about The Gracie Academy in Torrance resulted in that show being downloaded more than any FightWorks Podcast episode in our humble BJJ radio show’s history.
Rener is the son of Rorion Gracie and the grandson of Helio Gracie, as well as a head instructor at the Gracie Academy in Torrance. I felt that it would be wrong to not offer him the opportunity to address Renzo’s claims.
In addition, we’ll hear from Jonathan “JT” Torres, the twenty year-old Lloyd Irvin black belt who has been excelling in competition in his jiu-jitsu career. After just returning from competition in Japan, he is now in Brazil this very weekend competing again.
