Unsanctioned fights at Gracie family academy
The Gracie Family Academy became famous for taking on all challengers in their quest to establish their style of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. In this video, we get to see a selection of fighters take on the very best from the Gracies. Fascinating to see where everything started and what was required of these guys.
Also, a lot of respect has to be given to these guys who walked in off the street. Entering into the unknown in Gracie’s backyard took some guts. But as we get to see from the series of fights in the video. The Gracie family dominated all comers who thought their martial art style could overcome the Brazilian’s new addition to the martial arts scene in the United States.
