EP 58 – Big Challenge Equals Big Opportunity | GB Regional Director Vinicius “Draculino”

Vinicius “Draculino” Magalhaes is a 5th-degree black belt from Carlos Gracie, Jr. He currently lives in Texas and owns three academies. He is the Regional Director for Gracie Barra in the state of Texas.

He talked about the importance of having a mentor and listening to this mentor;

He shared his early days in jiu-jitsu, from moving to Belo Horizonte accepting Carlos Gracie Jr.’s Challenge to open the first Gracie Barra school out of Rio de Janeiro, to eventually take an even bigger challenge, which was moving to the United States and take his professional career to another level, which inspired me to title this episode:

“Big Challenge equals Big Opportunity.”

Stick around after the interview when I share my final thoughts of the episode with you.
