Guess Who's Coming to Portland?

Gracie Barra Portland's new head instructor has just been announced. Wow.

Gracie Barra Portland would like to proudly announce the Head Instructor for our newest location. 6x Brazilian National Champion, Pan Am Champion, 2x US National Champion, 3x World No Gi Champion and an MMA veteran with over 20 fights; Professor Fabiano Scherner. We are honored to have you as a part of our Team and our Family. Ossssss!
Between the recent announcement that Otavio Sousa would be joining Gracie Barra Seattle and this news about Gracie Barra Portland, I am amazed at how jiu-jitsu in general and Gracie Barra in specific is blowing up in the Pacific Northwest.

And, no, "Pacific Northwest" isn't redundant. It's just bragging. ;)
