It Happened at GB: GB Cedar Park – Make a difference in the world

What are you doing to make a difference in the world? What is your way to help people? Professor Fabio chose make a difference and give the world his best. The question is how to be not only a role model, but someone who has a big heart.


On October 16, Professor Fabio organized an special event at GB Cedar Park – TX, a self-defense and introduction to Jiu-Jitsu seminar for security staff and members from “Mission of Hope” from Haiti.

With the “Mission of Hope”, these people have a new opportunity in their life and can learn new things. Professor Gigantinho taught self-defense techniques, bjj history, and leadership.

Professor Vilela received a letter from Haiti Community:

Dear Fabio,

Thank you so much for investing in the Mission of Hope, Haiti leadership team last week by providing an afternoon of self-defense training, leadership development, and team-building! Understanding the idea that the size of an opponent does not matter when proper technique and patient control are utilized transcends the physical aspects of the sport of Gracie Jiu Jitsu and completely applies to the challenges of any organization and of life itself. You were able to communicate those principles in a masterful way that enabled each member of our team, both Haitian and North American, to connect and succeed, as well as have a great time in the process.

That generous investment of your time and expertise means that the nation of Haiti will be impacted for years to come, as our leaders continue to work hard towards the vision of helping bring life transformation to every man, woman, and child in Haiti.

Congratulations for all GB Cedar Park Team. Be solidarity is Jiu-Jitsu.
