She is one of the few Gracie women to achieve a black belt in BJJ and is the first Gracie female to actively compete in the sport. For several years she lived full-time in the United States, where she is associated with the Renzo Gracie Academy in New York and the Gracie Barra Academy in Lake Forest, California. In 2009, she moved back to her native Brazil, however she still maintains her U.S. green card and must spend at least 6 months of the year living in the United States.
She is also associated with the Gracie Barra Academy and Evolve/Gordo Jiu Jitsu Academy in Rio de Janeiro. Gracie competed in tournament six of Kunoichi, the female version of Sasuke (or Ninja Warrior). Kyra is currently training for her debut in MMA. In addition to BJJ she also trains in Judo and wrestling. In 2010, Kyra began competing for the newly formed Gracie Elite Team, a Brazilian jiu-jitsu competition team, composed of competitors representing Rillion Gracie, Renzo Gracie, Ralph Gracie, Cesar Gracie, and the late Ryan Gracieâ€™s respective academies.
Kyra is currently training to make her MMA debut in 2012. Since January 2010, she has been training in boxing at the Nobre Arte gym in the Morro do Cantagalo area of Rio de Janeiro under the tutelage of boxing coach Claudio Coelho, to complement her grappling skills.
In 2010, Kyra along with family members Rillion, Rolles, Roger, Igor, and Gregor Gracie began Gracie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Adventure Camp. The purpose of the camp is to provide training in Brazilian jiu-jitsu with access to the local tourism of the various host countries
