Boyle and Hall trained with Gracie for 90 minutes Wednesday at the IFL star’s gym on 30th street in Manhattan and picked up some tips on mixed martial arts and self-defense techniques.

“Renzo is a legend in mixed martial arts and is in fights and implements self defense every day of his life,” said Boyle. “It’s good to have a tip or two in my back pocket just in case it is needed.”

Said Gracie, “Ryan and Jordan are tough kids and good athletes, who now know a trick or two about how to defend themselves with or without sticks or helmets. Let’s see who tries to mess with them now, they are now part of my team too.”

Gracie and his IFL New squad will next compete at the Izod Center on Friday, April 4. For details go to www.ifl.tv .
