Jiu-jitsu saves lives. Five years ago, we pitched a new reality show to a major TV network, they were so excited that they produced this pilot episode. Everyone at the network LOVED it until one person, who sat in a really big chair, had second thoughts and decided to pull the plug. If you enjoyed the pilot and you'd like to see 'Amazing Gracies' come to life, share this video! If it gets enough traction, we'll partner with a different network and make it a reality so that everyone can witness the life-changing benefits of jiu-jitsu!

    Could you imagine being that idiot though that cornered a gracie and gave them no choice but to defend? That would suck ass.

    "As Gracie's...we know what we're capable of, and we don't have to beat people up to prove it." I LOVE you guys, your family, because what you've done for my life (by developing BJJ), but beating people up to prove yourself/your art is at the very foundation of the development of your art and the rise of BJJ lol. Obviously, you're also not wrong because I understand what you mean, but it was just funny to me. Much love.

    Invented? You took a Japanese martial art, removed the tradition, and focused on the combat. That's not inventing. That's modifying. Everything else was tight.

    I live in Cape Town, South Africa. Two days ago I witnessed someone getting attacked by someone wielding an axe. I don't ever want to be a victim. I am going to arrange a 10 day free trial at your school. I am also from Zimbabwe and would like to see you open a school there. Maybe 10 years form now I will take GJJ there.

    This should definitely become a T.V show I don't mind what network as long as its available in the UK would raise the profile of the amazing art and influence more people to take up self defense not only dose it show how to defend themselves but also teaches them to keep their ego in check which is what I learned in jiu jitsu

    "Based on the snippets, that's all they see and judge for it"....Stop babying him....He acted like a thug. He might be a good guy, but he still did what he did...he threw the first punch. Again...he might be a good guy for the most part, but don't baby him and act like what he did would have been justified if everybody saw the whole thing.
