Kyra Gracie gives thoughts on recent experience at Evolve MMA in Singapore
Though not a professional Mixed Martial Artist, decorated grappler Kyra Gracie is extremely familiar with what it takes to be a high-level competitor after winning multiple BJJ world titles and being born into royalty where the art-form is concerned.
Recently Gracie spent some time in Singapore teaching a series of seminars at Evolve MMA, one of the most respected gyms in the region and the latest in a series of training centers from one of the biggest players where instruction is concerned.
Of the experience, Gracie explained, “I was really happy to see how Jiu-Jitsu is going all over the world and to be here in the biggest Jiu-Jitsu and US MMA academy in the whole of Asia. It’s a pleasure for me to be here. I had a lot of fun.”
“I’m very impressed by the level here – that in a short period of time they’ve gotten so good. They’ve only been three years and they already have so many good students. They got everything very quick so I think the sky is the limit…the future is gonna be good,” the 26-year old continued on the topic.
In fact, the only BJJ blackbelt in the famed Gracie family even has plans to return to Singapore to improve some of her stand-up skills in anticipation of a potential MMA debut on the horizon.
“I love the environment (at Evolve MMA). I want to come here to train – to have a training camp here – so I can learn some Muay Thai,” she concluded.
