Child Gets to Train With Gracie Brothers Through Make-A-Wish Foundation

Every year or so, the brothers Rener and Ryron Gracie host a Gracie Immersion Camp at a warm location to give jiu-jitsu practitioners the opportunity to train with them in a family environment, receiving the same level of training they would if they were to travel to the Gracie University Headquarters in Torrance, California.

At a recent camp at a Disney World Resort, young Lena wished to get a roll in with the brothers. Through the Make-A-Wish foundation, Lena had a chance to put her Bullyproof skills to the test and fight the brothers in a feel-good moment. Watch as Rener gets visibly emotional in introducing and sharing a part of Lena’s story.
