Wednesday, April 20th – Master Relson Gracie stepped on the mats for the first time at our brand new Academy. His surprise visit was a great treat for the dedicated group that made it to class on Wednesday night. Relson seemed very pleased with the facility being
built in St. Augustine, and he was happy to see the students were motivated and engaged in his demonstrations.
Relson demonstrated side mount, side mount defense, collar choke from side mount, and street-effective self defense that comes straight from the source of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, his father Helio Gracie. You never know when the 9th Degree Master will make an impromptu appearance, and the committed students who attended class were excited to have the opportunity.
