https://www.jiujitsutimes.com/ralph-gracie-wanted-for-felony-assault-of-flavio-almeida-at-ibjjf-no-gi-worlds/

Remember that incident back in December at that BJJ tournament where Ralph Gracie smashed Flavio Almeida (Ricardo Almeida’s brother) in the face with an elbow? And then soccer kicked him on the ground?

The incident that looked like an unprovoked blindside assault?

Well, turns out the Orange County DA thinks it was assault too. A warrant has been issued for Ralph Gracie’s arrest, and also for his student who was his back up in the altercation.

Charge is felony assault with intent to produce great bodily injury. Suggest bail is $50,000.

Video of the incident, if you haven’t seen it.

Rumor is Ralph was pissed at Gracie Barra opening a competing BJJ school in his school’s area.

The incident caused an uncomfortable rift in the BJJ world. Ralph is Renzo’s brother, and Renzo is also crazy, so Renzo sided with Ralph.

But Flavio is Ricardo Almeida’s brother, and Ricardo considers Renzo a mentor and family figure. Flavio is also a big time leader in Gracie Barra, biggest BJJ association in the world.

So there was a lot of tension about divided loyalties, despite the fact that Ralph did an obviously piece of shit move.

Renzo supporters sided with Ralph. Gracie Barra supporters sided with Flavio.

Now it’s going to court, civil and now criminal.

If two professional combatants want to knuckle up that's fine, but that blindside attack was clearly a cunt move regardless of his motives

Why'd it take the cops 4 months? Didn't exactly need a Sherlock Holmes for this case.

Piece of shit, criminal thing to do. 

 

Standard fare for certainl members of that family,  I guess.  

 

Why not just go old school and challenge him to a one-on-one fight?

Idk about him being mad about GB opening up a school... I heard through a friend of my brothers that he walked in on Ralph and Alexander Crispim screaming at each other in Portuguese (this was Like ten years ago) causing Crispim to branch off and eventually open two schools in the area.  And Crispim is an affiliate of Barra, unless it’s a different set of Barra Brothers not associated with GB.

 

And I’ve heard Ralph was a cunt.

Ralph is a bitch for doing that and I lost respect for Renzo for siding with him on that felonious assault.

Renzo is never going to publicly come out against his immediate family. You have no idea what he said to Ralph behind closed doors. I know for a fact Renzo felt badly for Flavio .

of course I don’t expect Renzo to publicly come out against him. Not that he would care as I am a nobody but I have/had a lot of respect for Renzo. There’s quite a bit of difference between just feeling bad for flavio and telling Ralph he was wrong. I only hope that behind closed doors he was able to call a spade a spade & tell Ralph that it was fucked up.

For someone who preaches honour and respect, I've never seen such a cowardly chicken shit thing. 
Sucker punches someone who isn't paying attention 
Kicks them while they're down 
Flees out of the country to avoid responsibility for their actions

This is someone who teaches martial arts, and teaches children? 
Hope he gets locked up. Dunno how anyone could train there/support him after that incident.
