The Gracies post plenty of funny videos, but their most recent one is inspiring. Rener and Ryron Gracie invited a teenage girl who was attacked by five girls, to train with them in California. You may remember the viral video going around the internet. Supposed friends of the victim invited her over and jumped her. As if that wasn’t enough, someone actually stood there and filmed it. The entire situation was disgusting.
The Gracies offered to fly Naomi and her family out to Los Angeles to learn how to defend herself. They accepted and had one-on-ones with some of the greatest grapplers in the world.
As a parent, it’s heartbreaking to watch what happened and how everyone was affected. However, the Gracies are doing what they do and are changing lives for the better because of it.
Either this girl Naomi is a beast or the Gracies are amazing teachers. Within a week she was executing flawless helicopter armbars.
According to the Gracie YouTube,
“Naomi and her family were sent home with Gracie Garage home grappling mats, full access to the complete Gracie University curriculum, and lifetime membership to any Gracie Academy Certified Training Center so they can continue the jiu-jitsu journey as a family.”
These guys are superheroes.
