Revista Ragga Article – Belo Horizonte, Draculino, Students

Belo Horizonte (city in Minas Gerais) is known throughout martial arts for turning out some big names in Jiu-Jitsu. Proof of this is the third Brazilian team championship won by Minas Gerais, an unprecedented feat for a state outside of the Rio-São Paulo hub. “The team brought up by Vinícius Draculino is one of the best in the world. He’s trained more than 100 black belts”, praised Cláudio Cardoso, better known as Caloquinha. Having trained Jiu-Jitsu for 12 years, in 2004 he debuted in MMA, a sport that’s beginning to solidify it’s place in Belo Horizonte.

“Despite the fact that Rio and São have more structure, events and media attention, Minas has a fantastic group of people. What we’re still missing here is a little support”, affirms Caloquinha, who will turn his focus back on MMA later this year. Before that, he will participate in the World Abu Dhabi Pro, a professional Jiu-Jitsu world championship.

Vinícius Draculino is a big name when talking about fighting in Belo Horizonte. The absolute master when it comes to Jiu-Jitsu and coach of MMA fighters, he’s had such success with the team that he formed there, that he was invited to open his own academy in Houston. For two years he’s lived there. “Genuinely speaking, ninety percent of those who’ve had international recognition have passed through my hands or my instructors'”, he affirms… [continue]

Draculino GB Student Credited with Stopping Assault – Now with More Video!

 

 

Chris Reed at the office. File photo by Kim Christensen.by Thayer Evans [April 27, 2010] — Remember when Nassau Bay City Manager Chris Reed was hailed as a hero for chasing down that guy in the Best Buy parking lot a couple weeks ago?

Now you can see the video taken from the police patrol car first on the scene.

League City police say that on April 10 Reed, a former police officer who’s also a professional mixed martial arts fighter, had been shopping for a dishwasher when he and his teen-age daughter saw a man pushing a woman to the ground and punching her in the face. Police say the man ran away but Reed chased him down, pinned him to the ground until police could arrive, then backed off fast so that police wouldn’t mistake him him for a bad guy and Taser him.

After the incident was publicized, Reed said he received telephone calls and e-mails from people throughout the Houston area. One man even offered to buy him a dishwasher, which he declined.

Fellow city managers from across the state also called and said it was nice to see a city manager in action. Police officers joked with him about not being able to get law enforcement out of his system.

Reed also heard from mixed martial arts enthusiasts and was interviewed by a fighting web site called cagedoor.net about the incident. Mixed martial arts fans praised the fighter known as “The Celtic Tiger” for stopping the man and showing restraint in doing so.

“It was pretty overwhelming,” Reed said.

Reed said he doesn’t consider himself to be a hero.

“Hero? Absolutely not,” he said. “I feel that by training and background it was a blessing to be at the right place right time to help the young lady and to prevent the guy from getting himself into more trouble.”

Thoughts on Strikeforce – Henderson vs. Shields

Shields proved to be among the best! He showed heart by surviving the first round and then put on a clinic on how to use Jiu-Jitsu to control an opponent completely! If he had more power on those punches from the mount position, he would have finished the fight!
