Fightworks Podcast #204 BJJ Pan-Am Preparation with Alliance and Gracie Barra

    Tue, 2010-03-30 07:42 — Caleb Fightworks

    The Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Pan-Ams is run by the United States Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation (a subsidiary of the International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation) and is easily the second most important annual gathering of BJJ talent in North America. This week on the show we showcase the preparations made by two of the teams that have historically had the most success at the Pan Jiu-Jitsu Championship: Gracie Barra and Alliance. In 2006, 2007, and 2009 Gracie Barra won first place, and in 2008 Alliance took home the gold.

    From Alliance we hear from Romero “Jacare” Cavalcanti, the founder of the team who has made Atlanta, Georgia his home for over a decade. Jacare brings us up to speed on his team’s training camp and who we can expect to see at the Pan-Ams, all the while keeping in mind his desire to win the “Grand Slam”: 1rst place in the Europeans, Pan-Ams, Mundials, and Brasileiros.

    Gracie Barra’s preparations are delivered by two big names from the organization, Marcio Feitosa and Flavio Almeida. Both now run GB schools in southern California and they will share details of Gracie Barra’s efforts in the near term with the Pan-Ams as well as their long term investment in competition success with the Gracie Barra Competition Network.

    Of course cohost Dan and I will go over some correspondence from the Mighty 600,000, and review the good news about the finals of the Pan-Am being streamed live online on April 11.
