It’s Official: The Rickson Gracie Cup Is Coming to Scotland In July
The Rickson Gracie Cup is officially scheduled to make its Scotland debut.
The Cup will take place at the Emirates Arena in Glasgow, Scotland on July 7 and 8 this year. Saturday, July 7 will feature the kids’ tournament, a “Jiu-Jitsu for Life” workshop led by Steve Maxwell, and a three-hour seminar taught by Rickson Gracie himself. Sunday, July 8 will see the adult competition, plus a self-defense demonstration by Pedro Sauer and Luis Heredia. Rickson will also be hosting a free educational clinic for all the competitors.
Scott McVeigh, the president of the Jiu-Jitsu Federation of Scotland, called the event “historic,” citing the Gracie family’s ancestral ties to Scotland.
