Grandmaster Helio Gracie Passes
Submitted by:Kid Peligro / Sr Editor (ADCC)
Posted on : 1/29/2009
It is with deep sadness that I have
to announce that the Master of Maser, the founder
of gracie Jiu-Jitsu Grandmaster Helio Gracie has passed.
The Grandmaster is survived by his wife Vera, sons
Rorion, Relson, Rickson, Rolker, Royler, Royce and
Robin and daughters Rherika and Ricci his grandkids
and the Gracie family and a family of disciples all
practitioners of the art he loved .
at this time I am at a loss of words as words are
not enough to describe the greatness of this man who
not only developed a martial art but along with his
family fought to spread the word of its efficiency
to the 4 corners of the World. As a disciple, fan
and someone who has had the priviledge of sharing
the wisdom of the Grandmaster I can only say that
we will all miss him dearly and he will live in spirit
forever in all who practice and love this art.
A somber Royler put it perfectly: "He influenced
all of us for the better, continues to affect and
will continue to affect so many forever!"
I am sure that Grandmaster Helio Gracie is now sharing
the big mat in the heavens!
We will miss you dearly!
