Rafael Lovato Jr. on the Cover of Gracie Mag #124

As posted on the Lovato Jiu-Jitsu website, Team SRJJA member Rafael Lovato Jr. will be on the cover of Gracie Magazine #124 for July 2007.


From Lovato Jiu-Jitsu Academy website:

"Rafael is on a serious streak this year having won the American Nationals, European Championships, Pan-American Championships, and the Brazilian Nationals. After Rafael won the Brazilian Nationals, Gracie Magazine sat down with him to talk about the hardships of being a foreigner competing in Brazil. You can check out this article in the July 2007, Issue #124, of the prestigious Gracie Magazine."

Way to go Rafael! Keep up the good work and best of luck to you as you continue on to the Mundials this year!

I'm on the brink of ordering a Padilla and Sons myself. I've been in email contact w/Mr Padilla and he's been more than helpful in helping me decide. now it's just a matter of actually pulling the trigger. If it works out well, perhaps I can convince Abdula to carry them b/c I know he's not too fond of Atama right now.
