I'm so tired of posting about this stuff. Gracie Barra Yakima's head instructor, Cristiano Oliveira, arrested yesterday on charges of sexual assault of a minor. He's 35 now, she was well under 18 at the time, and yes, a student of his.
Grace Barra's official statement:
This on the heels of another GB black belt accused of raping and killing his one year old stepson, and on the heels of Hermes Franca being deported after serving his sentence for sexual abuse.
I'm SO TIRED of reporting this stuff. I have a horribly pinched nerve in my lateral axillary triangle (shoulder blade area) and I can't type (or do anything really) without severe pain. I'll post more when I can.
