Professor Pedro Valente was invited by the Academia Gracie Humaitá to teach a grappling seminar during the annual instructors Meeting in San Diego, CA. Pedro taught some of Grandmaster Hélio’s favorite techniques and strategies.
Last night the Valente Brothers family came together to celebrate 2016 and the new Blue, Purple, Brown, and Black Belts. Students from all VB locations joined our friends from the Royce Gracie Network for the largest Belt Ceremony in Miami to date. This year’s ceremony was dedicated to Grandmaster Pedro Valente Sr. The UFC Hall of Fame member and the Godfather of MMA, Royce Gracie, was once again in attendance.
