The son of the great grandmaster Carlos Gracie has spent valuable tips for the evolution of the Jiu-Jitsu lover, whether competitive or not. Check it out:

The essence of Jiu-Jitsu

“Jiu-Jitsu is a spiritual art. Monks and higher beings, as it was the great visionary Master Carlos Gracie first captured the message of Jiu-Jitsu. If you train, you can understand it easily. My father, Carlos, would sat down to talk with you and had the power to see a movie with all the subject’s life before his eyes. It is a divine force.”

The Fighter’s mission

“Jiu-Jitsu teaches cowardly to be brave, and abject beings to become human. A grip in the kimono or a choke has an extrasensory power so great that even a skinny person can do it. No matter if the opponent is stronger, it will work. “

Jiu-Jitsu against depression

“Jiu-Jitsu is able to transform failure. I once met an old friend, who told me that I was responsible for his life, because after so many hot flashes in training, he just felt choked by life and even thought about killing himself. Then he remembered the lessons of Jiu-Jitsu to stay calm and get up again. “

History and gentle art of efficiency

“The happiest day of my life was when Carlos Gracie, still young, jumped a fence to get a mango, and a big dog came to attack him. No alternative, he faced the beast, applied a rear naked choke, turned off the animal and figured all out. That’s where it all started. “
