The first family of mixed martial arts seems to enjoy coming to Maryland. Members of the Gracie family have met with students from multiple gyms in Maryland over the last year or so and recently made yet another stop in our state.
Royler Gracie met with students from Garfield BJJ in Arnold and held a self-defense seminar. A full recap of the seminar can be found here.
At least one other member of the Gracie family, Ryron, has visited Maryland gyms before. If a Mount Rushmore of MMA was made, the Gracies would adorn every spot. But it remains to be seen if a mountain range in America could accommodate all the different members of the family. Maybe the Rocky Mountains or the Appalachians.
