    Flavio Almeida is a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu under Gracie Barra and is the brother of Ricardo Almeida, who we had here on the show back in episode 89 of the Fightworks Podcast. Flavio is a former world Brazilian jiu-jitsu champion in the middle heavyweight division and now holds a leadership position in the Gracie Barra organization. On today’s show we’ll discuss his famous matches against Margarida, the origins and global growth of the Gracie Barra organization, where he sees Gracie Barra in ten years and much more.

    Plus, we’ll tell the story of Kenny from Marlyand, who’s selling cookies to fund his trip to the BJJ Pan-Ams at the end of this month, and relay the tale of BJJ used in an unlikely self-defense situation!
