Grandmaster Helio Gracie Passes

gracie1It is with deep sadness that I have to announce that the Master of Maser, the founder of gracie Jiu-Jitsu Grandmaster Helio Gracie has passed. The Grandmaster is survived by his wife Vera, sons Rorion, Relson, Rickson, Rolker, Royler, Royce and Robin and daughters Rherika and Ricci his grandkids and the Gracie family and a family of disciples all practitioners of the art he loved .

At this time I am at a loss of words as words are not enough to describe the greatness of this man who not only developed a martial art but along with his family fought to spread the word of its efficiency to the 4 corners of the World. As a disciple, fan and someone who has had the priviledge of sharing the wisdom of the Grandmaster I can only say that we will all miss him dearly and he will live in spirit forever in all who practice and love this art.

A somber Royler put it perfectly: “He influenced all of us for the better, continues to affect and will continue to affect so many forever!”

I am sure that Grandmaster Helio Gracie is now sharing the big mat in the heavens!

We will miss you dearly!
