So, as I’m sure most of you heard over the weekend, Otavio Sousa posted on his facebook account that he is no longer employed as a teacher for Gracie Barra Irvine.
It sucks to be let go from any job, so I definitely feel for the guy, but also keep in mind there are always 3 sides to a story- your side, my side and then the truth, which I have found more often than not involves a mash up of the two sides and additional facts that come into play. Right now we are only hearing Sousa’s side: whether or not we hear anything from his (former) employers, only time will tell.
Any other news I missed over the weekend? I feel like that was the big story over the past 48 hours or so. Oh! Janni Larsson, a female black belt from Sweden, just recently won the Swedish Martial Artist Role Model of the Year! I had the pleasure of meeting Janni during the last Pans: she is an absolute sweetheart and I’m so happy for her!
I think that’s it for now-any other stories anyone else knows about? Let me know, otherwise have a great day everyone!
