Video profile of Carley Gracie, 8th degree Black Belt and 11th child of Brazilian 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, a jury verdict finding that Rorion lacked a valid federal service mark for the name "Gracie Jiu-Jitsu."

For a breakdown of the legal case, check out bulk.resource.org

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'.

the beef was that Carley beat the shit out of Helio because Helio had beaten the shit out of his horse.

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.
