With no small amount of nervousness, the cast of Real Rio Show head to a favela!
After checking out the delights of the local market and trying some street food, they visit a social outreach program run by professional MMA and Muay Thai fighter, Edu Pachu.
Edu has taught Muay Thai to young people in the favela of Tijuquinha, Barra da Tijuca, for the last ten years. He provides them a safe place to go at night, and helps guide them away from the problems that come with living in such an impoverished area.
