Renzo Gracie explains the meaning of Jiu-Jitsu

 

"Jiu-Jitsu in Brazil has a big difference - we are like artists, by nature," explains Renzo Gracie. "Constantly we trying to add beauty to movements. They are not only trying to innovate the sport, not only trying to create the sport, but if you watch a world competition today, from 12 weight divisions, 11 are Brazilians.

"They really dedicate their time, and passion, and heart to their sport, and they do it gracefully.

"We are not in the business of martial arts, we are in the business of building confidence… Our goal is to make you confident, not only in being able to defend yourself, but confidence in facing life.

"You're going to find more knowledge in here than in any Ivy League school in America." 

 

Knowing the meaning of BJJ is one thing; FRANK151 Art Director Nick Ace gets to experience it.

He has not one white hair at 45 years old?? That's what I came away with from the video. Now I'm jealous because I'm 36 and have 3. Phone Post 3.0

Every time I see Renzo talk or engage with others, he always has that look like he's one hair away from happy....to crazed killer. I can't really explain why.

Joshua King - Renzo could easily be a leading man in Hollywood today. He's got offers coming in every day for the past 5 years Phone Post 3.0

"You're going to find more knowledge in here than in any Ivy League school in America."



both statements are extremely dumb .... but because your unknown Joshua King, so you take 1st place =)

Well depends on your scale of measurement. If you measure how tough a guy is in Harvard by how he fights than BJJ is definitely more knowledge than being a copyright attorney.
