Guilherme and Rafael Mendes will spend two weeks at some of the most popular tourist sites in Europe.
But they’re going there to work. “We want to let everyone know we’re heading to Europe; we have seminars scheduled in Switzerland, Turkey and Birmingham, England,” wrote Guilherme Mendes to GRACIEMAG.com.
“We invite one and all who can make it to our seminars, to get to know us, our way of training, our game a bit better,” says 2009’s light featherweight world champion.
“Thank God we’re seeing wonderful recognition from people; we receive emails asking for seminars in different places every day. We want to take the opportunity to say thanks for the affection, it just motivates us to train even more. The joy of being an athlete and achieving victories goes beyond winning on the mat, there’s also the gratifying victory outside of tournaments: that of fulfilling dreams and conquering people’s admirations, and being happy with one’s own self,” he says.
“We’re going to compete this year; we’re training a lot and are in top shape, feeling really good!”
If you’re nowhere near Europe or Rio Claro, Brazil, you still have the opportunity to learn from the Mendes brother in GRACIEMAG. In this month’s training program. Subscribe here and secure your copy of GRACIEMAG every month at home.
