Reyson Gracie (born in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil in 1941) is the 3rd son (7th child) of Carlos Gracie, the founder of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and a member of the Gracie Family. Like his father, he has structured his life around three pillars: Jiu-Jitsu, the Gracie Diet and Spiritualism. Reyson Gracie is a 9th degree red and black belt in BJJ.

Biography Edit

In the beginning of the 1960s Reyson trained many athletes to fight in the famous Brazilian TV programme Heróis do Ringue ("The Heroes of the Ring"). With a unique pedagogy for both children and adults, his classes have always been known for exploiting not only the techniques of Jiu-Jitsu but also the philosophy behind the ancient martial art. He is a 9th degree (dan) red belt in his father's art.

Reyson's most important achievement was the introduction of Jiu-Jitsu into Amazonas (the Brazilian state) in 1977 where he created the Amazonas Federation of Jiu-Jitsu. The state is nowadays the second biggest in this sport worldwide, only behind Rio de Janeiro. From 1997 to 2002, he headed the Bahia Federation of Jiu-Jitsu. Since then he has been travelling and giving seminars in and outside Brazil to students and teachers of all levels.

Reyson currently lives in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Personal life Edit
