RIP Helio Gracie

    Thu, 2009-01-29 09:26 — three harmonies

    Helio Gracie 1913-2009

    The legendary patriarch of jiu-jitsu's first family, Helio Gracie, has passed away at the age of 95. The father of nine children, including UFC Hall of Famer Royce, the master of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu was revered throughout the world for his gentle manner off the mat and his amazing skill and technique on it. He will be sorely missed. The UFC sends its sincerest condolences to the family and friends of Helio Gracie. -

    RIP but on the flip side he did live a good long life. Maybe if we all keep training in JJ then we can also live to be 95.

    To honor his request and his legacy, the Gracie Academy will host a celebratory gathering/slideshow presentation on Saturday, February 7, 2009. In anticipation of a large turnout of friends and family, we intend to have three showings starting at 4:00pm, 5:00pm and 6:00pm. If you can’t make it to the party, but would like to express how the Grand Master has affected your life, please send your story to so we can post it on the Gracie Academy website.
