Students from other schools are currently being placed on a waiting list and will be selected on a first come first serve basis.
Rickson, son of Helio Gracie, was born into Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. At fifteen he started to teach the art, and by eighteen he received his black belt from his father. When he was twenty years old he was selected to represent the Gracie family in one of the family’s most important challenge fights against the famous 230-pound Brazilian brawler Zulu. Rickson, in an amazing display of technique and mettle, defeated Zulu, who until that time had enjoyed a 140-match, undefeated record. With this victory, Rickson gained immediate national acclaim as the top fighter in the world, leaving his mark on the history of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu and the Gracie challenge. Five years later Zulu requested a rematch and lost to Rickson again, in Maracanazinho before an audience of 20,000 spectators.
Rickson is a 7th Degree Red and Black Belt, whose technique is considered to be the finest expression of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu in the world. His innate talent and early mastery of the art have resulted in an impeccable undefeated record in more than 400 fights.
