Happy Helio Gracie Day


Helio Gracie

Today is Helio Gracie day to many that practice the beautiful "Arte Suave" Jiu-Jitsu. The Grandmaster who made his life a mission to expand Jiu-Jitsu thorughout the Earth would have been 97. Let's all remember this day and his legacy by thinking of a favorite story and thinking how GJJ changed out lives.

  1. Kid, thank you so much for your inspirational words that help carry the true meaning of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu for generations to come.

    What I remember most about my brief visit with Grandmaster Helio at his house in Itaipava was his smile. He was so genuinely pleased to see me, Allen Hopkins and Professor Sauer. He spent the afternoon showing us pictures, telling stories and laughing. It's ironic to me that a man that earned so many followers with his blood, sweat and tears spent so much time with a big smile on his face. I am forever grateful for the multitude of experiences that I would never have had without his hard work.

    Thank you,
    Matt Strack
