Grandmaster Rorion Gracie visits Valente Brothers and teaches Jiu-Jitsu philosophy

Grandmaster Rorion Gracie spent the evening at Valente Brothers and for over 90 minutes discussed principles and benefits of the Gracie diet, the creation of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, and overall Gracie Jiu-Jitsu philosophy. As Professor Pedro Valente said, “teaching the fighting skills of Jiu-Jitsu without imparting the philosophical principals is a dangerous mistake.” Following Grandmaster Rorion’s Great Jiu-Jitsu philosophy lesson, the Valente brothers thanked Grandmaster Hélio’s eldest son for everything he did for Jiu-Jitsu in the United States and the world. Students and teachers were very pleased and honored with this surprise and memorable visit.
