Ulpiano arrives in Texas with a bang

GMA member Ulpiano Malachias made a very hard decision recently.

He decided to move from a successful Gracie Barra Santa Ana school, in California, to open the brand new Gracie Barra Westchase, near Houston.

To mark his arrival in Texas, recently he taught a seminar at the academy of another GMA member, Gracie Barra New Mexico,. of Roberto “Tussa” Alencar.

Tussa, Ulpiano

The class was a huge success, with 60 people learning some great techniques from the 1st degree black belt.

Malachias took the oportunity to thank Tussa and another GMA member for the help he is getting in his Texas adventure: “I want to mention Vinicius “Draculino” (GB Texas) for all the help he has offered me”.

Ulpiano has sent some pictures of his class in New Mexico.
