For the last few weeks we have have the pleasure to host our new friend and very challenging training partner Igor Estrella. Igor spent a lot of time with all of us and also traveled up to Robson Moura’s camp with Marcelo to help in their training camp for the upcoming Masters World Championships in Long Beach, California.
We took a few minutes to speak to him about his background and experience while with our team.
Igor trains with Gracie Nova Iguaco under Andre Negao and Royler Gracie. He has competed a couple of times in the Mundials and Marcelo says he is a name to watch with the ability to do as well as he wants to do.
This is one of the great things about Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. No matter where you are in the world, no matter who your teacher is or where you train, we all belong to the same family.
Last night was his last night in Naples and we are going to miss him.
Best of luck Igor!
This weekend Team Marcelo Pereira had a very successful seminar with 7 time Mundials World Champion Robson Moura.
We had a full house on hand for the event, where Marcelo and Robson both presented some of their favorite techniques to our school and many students and guests from other Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu schools in the area.
Marcelo and a few of the guys from the dojo drove over to Miami to watch the Miami open. We were able to catch some of the black belt fights and ended up running into a good friend and former teammate of Marcelo’s, Robson Moura.
Professor Pereira’s Nova Uniao teammate was in town to train for his fight at the 2011 ADCC. The seven time world champion talks with Marcelo about how long they have known each other and why he is spending part of his camp here.
