Carley Gracie talks coming to America

[fightlifetv]
 

Video profile of Carley Gracie, 8th degree Black Belt and son of Gracie jiu-jitsu founder Carlos Gracie. Carley details how he made his way to America from Brazil, fought challenge matches, and built up his school and the family name over the next several decades.

Carley started teaching Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in the US in the early 70s and engaged in an extended legal battle with UFC co-founder Rorion Gracie. The court case ended with among other decisions, the cancellation of Rorion's federal registration for "Gracie Jiu-Jitsu."

Hey, I just met him, and this is crazy, but he's got Jiu-Jitsu so he could be a Gracie.

Back in the day, there was major beef with him and the rest of the Gracies, and not because of the use of the term 'Gracie Jiu-Jistu'.

Haven't seen the video yet, but I would be most interested to know what Carly has to say about "Coming to America."

I saw it when I was sixteen, and I have to say, I think it's one of Eddie Murphy's better movies.
