Conceived of by city councilor Marcelo Arar, himself a Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt, the walk honors numerous BJJ stars including the late Helio and Carlos Gracie, as well as judo founder Jigoro Kano, capoeira's Mestre Pastinha, hall of fame boxer Eder Jofre and MMA legends like Anderson Silva. Arar said the plan is to add 10 new names to the walk every year.
