The Most Dangerous Place on Earth

April 27, 2012

Honduras has been named one of the most dangerous places on earth with approximately 20 times the US homicide rate. San Pedro Sula, often cited as Honduras' most violent city, has a murder rate of almost double that national average in itself. Gangs have imposed an almost unchallenged reign of extortion, murder and drug trafficking on this city. Underfunded police forces recognize that they don't have the resources and necessary instruments to control these problems.

The Gracie Certified Training Center of San Pedro Sula opened in March 2012 and is keeping it real on all levels. For the Gracie family to reach this part of the world is exciting news! The CTC is working on partnering with Honduras army and police to include GJJ into their regular curriculum.
