Draculino: “Gracie Barra is still #1” & “Jiu-jitsu changes lives”

http://www.mantofight.com http://www.scramblestuff.comhttp://www.connectionrio.com‬ — Vinicius ‘Draculino’ Magalhaes is a 4th degree Gracie Barra black belt. Part of the GB team since the 1980s, he shared a mat with many of the most famous names in jiu-jitsu, including the Gracies, the Machados and more.

With Gracie Barra academies of his own in the USA, Europe and Brazil, Draculino explains how the organisation was the perfect environment for him and his peers to grow, and why the team was (and still is, in his opinion) number one.

He also explains how jiu-jitsu isn’t just a sport or form of self-defence, but has the potential to truly change lives.

Filmed entirely at the Gracie Barra academy in Barra da Tijuca, Rio de Janeiro.


Draculino iPhone Apps Are Here!

Draculino iPhone Application

We are EXTREMELY happy to announce our first two iPhone apps are live and ready for purchase!

These applications are “Blue Belt: Basic” and “Blue Belt: Complete” and cover the techniques I feel are essential for every blue belt to know. After looking at the content available online, it was obvious to me that we could do better – and we have! We have high quality instructionals teaching techniques with proper form and movement, we have great camera angles (just like the online training site), and the application is easy to use. Technique wise, we cover everything from the basic mount escape to arm bars, triangles, and take downs.

If you want to be able to learn wherever you are, download the app! Check out the apps in the store: Draculino BJJ Training: Blue Belt – Complete and
Draculino BJJ Training: Blue Belt – Basics. You need to click the “…More” link at the top of the page to see all of the details.

Also, stay tuned as we have another HUGE announcement coming soon that will shake up the way you learn and train!
