Yani Gellman  Epic bra


Last week I was bestowed with the most humbling honor of my life - a black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu by my teacher & great friend, Professor Shawn Williams. I’ve studied BJJ for over 20 years, & been enriched by so many of the greatest people I have ever known. I’ll spend the rest of my days trying to pay back, & forward, the debt I owe the extraordinary people who blessed me with their experience. My Dad, black belt in Karate, took me to Kung fu movies & showed me how to block a punch. When I was bullied as a kid, he sent me to train with the Gracies in California. He passed on 4 years ago. I wish he were here so we could wear our belts together. He gave me a gift that has allowed me to face many of life’s challenges. It’s been incredible to see so many people I started with become champions & open academies. Of these warriors, none more important to me than my dear friend Elliott Bayev, who I introduced to BJJ, but who became so good that he became my teacher, & more than that, my brother. A stalwart of community, empowering countless students with a vast arsenal of techniques. Without him I’d have quit & strayed from my other dreams. @elliottbayev has taught me so much. And introduced me to Prof. Shawn Williams in LA. When I started with @shawnwilliamsbjj years ago, my training started over. He teaches real jiu jitsu, concepts that go beyond trends. Prof. Williams makes clear how we learn, train & compete, is what we do in the world outside. Inch by inch he has turned me around. I’d have been lost without his guidance, which kept me sharp for my work & means more to me than he knows. As much as I’ve been given by my teachers, I have learnt as much from their students, my family @openmatmma TO @5starmartialarts LA @leveragebjjhq KL whose generosity has given me a constant home in my travel between these cities. Prof. @dane_molina u are the standard I try to live up to. KruJohn,Soto,Taka,Armand, Jeremyx2,Marshall, Benji,Gabe,Jacques,Nick,Howard, Royce,Al,Rowan,Matt,Jorge, Tania, Matt K,Josh,Val,Trevor, Taro,Carlos,Dennis,Dan,Aaron Goh & everyone at these fine schools - thank u so much for all yr help. Can’t wait to continue the adventure with you all #OSS

These two women. @claireholt & @mandymooremm . Braved a month of shooting underwater in a dark, murky tank filled with garbage particles & minimal bathroom breaks, using only scuba masks & an air tank to convey the overwhelming fear and claustrophobia of being trapped at the bottom of the ocean surrounded by circling sharks. It is a TREMENDOUS feat of acting, one which I have never seen before & certainly could not have pulled off myself. If you enjoyed #wonderwoman, & want to see more films in which women are portrayed as the superheroes they are, except in this case, without any magic powers or special effects, just their courage, strength, intelligence & solidarity - come support our movie 47 Meters Down. I promise you won’t want to come back up. #47metersdown @claireholt @mandymooremm @matthewmodine @yochrisjohnson @santiagoasegura

Just trying not to misspell my name! Don't worry I got you one mom @47metersdown #sharkbait
