The story of the Gracie family is an incredible, well-documented chain of events, with more than a hundred years of tradition, generations of sons and daughters carrying the torch, masters and students of all creeds, reaching all corners of the world.

The Gracie’s revolutionized self-defense training, their vision resulting in a major change in combat sports, giving birth to Mixed Martial Arts and some of world’s biggest sports organizations and star athletes.

The history of Jiu Jitsu is rich with accounts of marvel, from the arrival of Count Mitsuyo Maeda from Japan to Brazil, legendary battles between the Gracie Family and representatives of other martial arts, to the first UFC.
