There is no doubt that the Gracie’s helped to change the way martial arts are practiced around the world. Their willingness to take on people from different styles in a one on one match paved the way for what is now called mma. Here is a video clip of some old footage from challenge matches that happened at the Gracie Academy a long time ago. Enjoy!!!
One thing whether you like the Gracie’s or not you need to understand that they did and do train very, very hard. Think like professional athlete hard! All martial practitioner’s should train very, very hard. If you are not doing this you should be conditioning is a major component in any self-defense situation!
See You On The Mats!!!
