On Saturday, October 9th, Eric Silver was given an appreciation award by 7th degree black-belt, Luiz Palhares.  The award recognized Silver as being one of the first people to bring the art of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu to Tennessee. Eric started the first school of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu in middle Tennessee in 1994 under Rickson Gracie and later became the sixth American ever awarded his black-belt by Rickson. Today, virtually every school in middle Tennessee is related to students who studied with Eric and Zanshin Dojo.

Congrats to you big guy!
