As with most situations in Japan, the people behind this weren’t quite 100% honest with Kyra over what was supposed to go down:
Kyra Gracie was in Japan yet again, at the end of the year. The black belt was hired to perform a Jiu-Jitsu demonstration on a well-known local television program. “That’s what I was hired for, but when I got there I had to fight for real,” said the amused founder of Instituto Kapacidade, one of the stars to figure at the next European Open.
For a little more Kyra on goofy Japanese TV, here she is wiping out on Female Ninja Warrior.
