People always ask: "What it was like growing up in the Gracie Family?" Even though it's hard to put into words, one thing we can say is what a blessing it was to have a superhero as our grandfather and our teacher. What many people don't know was that his real superpower was his ability to make us (and everyone else he taught) feel like WE were the superheroes. We share this special footage from the "Gracie Garage" in 1988 so you can see his level of love and commitment to empowering others. He was 75 years old in the video, and he remained active in jiu-jitsu into his 90's. If it wasn't for him, so much of who we are and what we love would not exist today.
Happy Helio Gracie Day everyone!
