    With no small amount of nervousness, the cast of Real Rio Show head to a favela!

    Edu has taught Muay Thai to young people in the favela of Tijuquinha, Barra da Tijuca, for the last ten years. He provides them a safe place to go at night, and helps guide them away from the problems that come with living in such an impoverished area.
