    Helio Gracie’s picture, which adorns jiu-jitsu academies worldwide.

    This week marks the end of a chapter in Brazilian jiu-jitsu history. One of the men most responsible for Brazilian jiu-jitsu as we know it passed away on January 29. Helio Gracie died this week at the age of 95 after a very fruitful life: Helio not only fathered a family of nine children who have gone on to have large families of their own, but helped define a martial art that has spread across the world, improving the health and quality of life for untold numbers of Brazilian jiu-jitsu practitioners.

    In an effort to bring our listeners a little bit closer to the man that was Helio Gracie, we speak this week with Kid Peligro, the author of The Gracie Way, and Fabio Santos, a black and red belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu. Both men spent time with Helio Gracie and will share their memories with us.

    We will also discuss a phone call or two we have received from The Mighty 600,000 on our FightWorks Podcast toll free number 877-247-4662.
