This is the final entry in Marc’s web diary of his 10-day trip. For the full story, you can pick up the September issue of FCF at Tower Records stores or subscribe now

Barra Diaries By Marc Scott

Part Four & Final: Rio De Janeiro

Rio is gone now, or at least I am gone, and to the best of my knowledge Rio is still there. Ten days anywhere is not enough to truly say you can understand a city and I feel as if I had a only a slight taste of what Rio and Brazil had to offer. The training is all over now and I will return to my regular training with my friends and coach, I will no longer be called the gringo and singled out of the group by my lack of Portuguese and minimal skill in Jiu-Jitsu.

After ten days I am happy to be able to come home and see my girlfriend and try to make what I learned during my trip work on the mat. It is hard to judge just how much I have learned or how much I will retain, only in the days to come will I be able to see what I will remember. Amazingly after ten days of the Gracie diet I have put almost ten pounds on, the four large meals a day seem to have filled out my waistline yet I have more energy than I may have ever had in my life, the constant fruit, vegetables and fish seem to have cleaned my system, a cleansing which will not last long as I already feel the urge to hit the bars and wash away the good living with margaritas and steak.
I appreciate the hospitality I received from my new friends at the Gracie Camp and Gracie Barra will stay with me. I’d like to thank Marcio Feitosa for showing so much; Carlos Gracie Jr. for enduring my endless questions about Jiu-Jitsu and the early history of the sport; Luca Atalla editor of Gracie Magazine for not saying anything when I complained there was only one world champion teaching at the camp, he then brought Mundial Champion "Soca" to round out the teaching staff.
Along with Steve from England and Suzuki-san from Tokyo I think we all made strides in our game and definitely got to have a taste of what Jiu-Jitsu is.

On my last day in Rio we went to the famous Corcovado monument of Christ on the hill, a symbol of Brazil. As I stood on the hill over looking Rio, I said my goodbyes but knew I would soon be back.

From the event’s promoter:

"Circle of Truth",
NHB Hits Savannah in September

Reality Super Fighting announces its next mixed martial arts event, "Circle of Truth". These no-holds-barred cage fights will be held at the National Guard Armory in Savannah, GA on September 22, 2001.

The long awaited rematch between Todd "Crazy T" Carney and Charles "Crazyhorse" Bennett will take place on this card! The last time these two battled, Crazyhorse KO’d Carney. Carney doesn’t like to lose. Since that fight, Carney has won five other NHB matches and, most recently, a pro boxing match where he knocked out his opponent in less than a minute. Carney is ready to go to war.

Fans can look forward to five professional bouts including a fight featuring Savannah’s own Muhsin Corrbrey who just came off of a big win in Weirton, WV against Jerry Hackney.
Five amateur fights are also slated for the card. "We want to be all about the fighters," said Reality Sports Inc. President Jamie Levine. "We want to give up-and-coming fighters the chance to get their first experience in fighting at a big show."

The last RSF event in Savannah, GA sold out to a standing room only crowd! Tickets will be available at the National Guard Armory, 1248 Eisenhower Drive, Savannah, GA on Friday, September 21 (9 a.m. to 5 p.m.) and on Saturday, September 22 (9 a.m. to the event start at 7:00 p.m.).
