Gracie Jiu Jitsu Philosophy

Jiu jitsu was conceived by indian monks that couldn't be allowed to wear weapons. Travelled to Japan where it was widely adopted by Samurais, hence it's strong roots are japanese. Around 1914 Master Mitsuyo Maeda, aka Count Koma, brought to Brazil his teachings on judo with strong jiu-jitsu influences from Kodokan martial arts school. Master Carlos Gracie in his 17 years started trainning with him. Afterwards Master Carlos passed his knowledge to his brothers. The core of Gracie jiu-jitsu technic is defense guard on the floor by levers, perfected by Masters Carlos and Helio Gracie, allowing lightweight bodies to break heavier opponents.

My first time at the Gracie world I was 15, I've started competing at 16 years, blue belt till black, trainning with Master Rickson Gracie. Master Helio once explained that in Gracie philosophy to be a champion is to be a man that can defend himself, that has security to look at anyone in the eyes, stand his ground, no need to cross the streets for anyone. To always walk tall.

Not all modern bjj has concepts developed by the Gracie family.

Gracie jiu-jistu comes from Brazil, but not all bjj are Gracie originated. A Gracie jiu-jitsu master had to be trained by the Gracie family. Some bjj masters are from indirect students of students of the Gracie. They didn't drink from the source. Generic brazilian jiu-jitsu doesn't have the real world situations defense experience, trainning and knowledge. It got constrained on one-on-one martial arts competition rules.

Gracie Jiu-jitsu has the essence of assuring your honour, moral and integrity in the streets. Neutralization by prevention, safety in real life critical situations, to aways go home in one piece. Our phylosophy It's not about the glory on the podium, is about feel safe anywhere in life.
