Three friends from the United States traveled in Europe as vacationers. Now, the world knows them as heroes. Three days ago, Anthony Sadler, Spencer Stone and Alek Skarlatos were aboard a high-speed train en route to Paris from Amsterdam on Friday when a gunman opened fire. Along with two others, they charged, tackled and subdued the terrorist. Applause has poured in from world leaders and citizens alike as more details emerged on the chaotic, bloody scene aboard the train.
The jiu-jitsu community was elated to find out that Spencer Stone, the person who rushed the gunman first, is a jiu-jitsu student at a Gracie affiliate school in Lisboa, Portugal. In this special edition Gracie Breakdown, Ryron and Rener reenact the scene and share the three most important lessons they took away from the lifesaving efforts of these courageous men.
