What the Gracie family has given to the world is beyond compare and can never be repaid. Thank you Gracie Family and much respect.

Very interesting post. Cool to see BJJ taught as a new technique to Americans in the 80s. Thanks Bruno. Btw, is this the first time the Gracies made it to the States?

I love Chucks open mind to BJJ. Most people back then did not respect BJJ at all. Thank you to Chuck for bringing Carlos Machado (Gracie cousin) to Texas.

This is great. Good to see how progressive the Gracies were back then and Chuck Norris as well for introducing an effective style to his students. That’s mutual respect.

Never heard of these so called “Gracie’s”.

Just started Jiu Jitsu a few weeks ago, we’ve been learning some of these same basic moves. Cool to see the techniques havent changed in 25 years.

Chuck Norris FTW

Yeah, Bruno. This version is lacking a bit in quality. Let me know when this comes out on Bluray so I can watch it on my plasma with surround sound. Thank you.

Amazing. It’s great to know that Norris was always so open minded. Most classically trained martial artists scoffed at bjj back then, but he understood the importance and benefit of even a small amount of knowledge in grappling (bjj, judo, wrestling) along with your knowledge of striking. I learned that lesson a little late unfortunately…

Chuck Norris was once bitten by a cobra, and the cobra died.

jakelo Says, in 6-28-2012 at 06:59:40 from    

Chuck Norris is God.

@ 17:47 Rorion Gracie: “Nobody can kick the guy from here, only in movies.. we will let Chuck do this one in the movies…(Laughing). But you know what I’m saying.. the guy jumps from over here and kills him over there..it’s not like that”

Chuck Norris: “IT IS!!!”

In 1972, Carley Gracie moved to the United States, where he fought challenge matches and trained students up and down the eastern seaboard. Carley was the first member of the Gracie family to teach Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in the United States, and gave classes at locations in Virginia and Florida before moving to California in 1979. He eventually opened a school in San Francisco, California, where he currently teaches.[2]

I love how people love the gracies for coming to america but anyone who went to japan and saw them doing it were saying oh silly asians. Kind of like when the gracies went to japan and got smoked, thank you judo masters and jui jitsu fighters from japan who taught the russians sambo and the gracies jj.

psxdogg Says, in 7-2-2012 at 23:42:09 from    


That’s the truth. Notice how Rorion Gracie said ‘gracie’ jui jitsu came from japan but they changed 60% of it. I would like to know which moves they invented 4 real…

And if they did invent a lot of moves.. Why did they stop? Looks like the 1st generation of the Gracies were the intellectual ones
