His friend Rickson Gracie invited him to practice jiujitsu together with his younger brother Royler, who was only nine years old at the time. The results of this experience convinced him that Jiujitsu was the foremost effective of all martial arts, and he started training. subsequent day, Pedro completed a double specialization (economics and business administration) at the university and a postgraduate course at the Fundacao Getulio Vargas more available here.
