I updated the Red Belts website with some profiles of the grand masters we are featuring. Right now the list of masters on the site is incomplete, we have some more to upload over the next few weeks. 

Each profile has a bio and an excerpt from our video interviews, hopfully it'll give you an idea of what we're working on and whet your appetite for the documentary :)

Click to see the Grand Masters profiles

 

GMs on the site so far inc:

Robson Gracie

Joao Alberto Barreto

Osvaldo Alves

Flavio Behring

Alvaro Barreto

Oswaldo Paqueta (RIP)

I agree... it's great that Hywel is making the effort to make sure these legends get some exposure.

It's criminal that there are BJJ practitioners with scarcely a fraction of the skill and knowledge these gentlemen posses, who are far more famous than these masters.

Are you having Armando Wriedt and Helio Vigio Gomes in the documentary? I wish Pedro Hemeterio was still around. Helio Vigio was the other referee at UFC 1.

Vigio is pretty frail nowadays, I think he has Parkinsons - he's not in the picture. I believe his son has an academy in Copacabana though.

Wridt / Wreidt lives out in the sticks nr Brasilia, nobody I've asked has his contact details

Relson has some pretty scary stories about Helio Vigio and his work as a high level police officer. I know that he is not yet a red belt for another couple of months, but you might consider talking with him as he knew these guys personally and grew up around them.

I met Relson recently, he'll get his red belt in Hawiai but he's moving back to Rio next year. Unfortunately I plan to complete the film before then

I've never interviewed him on film but I've met him many times. I've always wanted to do something on LL, maybe when I have a little less on my plate I'll tackle it :) Phone Post

Hey! Do you know which "sticks" Armando lives in? I'm in Brasilia so I can ask around if I know the general area for it. Phone Post
