Alavanca T-shirt Now in Stock

May 27, 2010

The word "Alavanca" means "leverage" in Portuguese. Anyone who studies the art knows that "alavanca" is the main reason why Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is so effective against larger opponents, and is the only thing that made it possible for Helio Gracie to become proficient in the art. The Grand Master used the word "alavanca" so much that it could have been his middle name.
