Rockson at Rickson Gracie Cup in California.

Rickson Gracie’s first child, Rockson Gracie, was a BJJ phenomenon in his own right. Before he left us in December 2000, Rockson took part in a few BJJ tournaments, always parading an aggressive style.

Among those tournaments was the 1st Rickson Gracie Cup, held in 1997 in Los Angeles. Still a blue-belt, Rockson faced Japan’s Manami in a clash of passer vs. guard player.

Scoring with guard passes and several attacks, Rockson won on points and secured the event’s blue-belt light featherweight title. You can check out his style in this video.
