Former WWE Diva, Eve Torres Gracie has had a great week! After being involved in jiu-jitsu for a little over 8 and a half years she was awarded her purple belt by her husband, Rener Gracie.
Following his first Father’s Day celebration as a father, Rener took the opportunity to share this posting on his wife’s promotion:
Father’s Day would not be possible without Mothers, so I dedicate my first one to @evetorresgracie. Many people who have children fall off the mat and never find their way back. Not only did Eve get back to training after Raeven was born, but she did it with greater dedication than ever before. After 8.5 years hard work, she earned her purple belt. Usually the teacher motivates the student, but in this case, the student is motivating the teacher more than anyone can imagine
Her message mirrored that of her husband’s:
Today was a meaningful day. Sometimes you feel like life gets in the way of your goals, but really, it’s just redefining your path to achieving those goals. I am so lucky to have a husband that supports me and my dreams, especially now that I am a mama. After 8.5 years with jiu-jitsu in my life, I have earned my purple belt. The best part is, there is still so far to go! @renergracie
Her dedication to the art is certainly admirable given how many impositions being a first time mother brings.
