About the Author

My name is Spencer I’m currently a freshly minted blue belt training at the Gracie Barra Ahwatukee Academy under Prof. Luis Freire.

I’ve been training for about 14 months and had the honor of being promoted to Blue Belt at our School’s 1 year anniversary which featured a seminar by Prof. Romulo Barral.  I also have the great opportunity to frequently train with Prof. Flavio Almeida who lives in Phoenix and leads the Arizona Gracie Barra team (as well as Gracie Barra as a whole).
