The Jiu-Jitsu community serves a much more meaningful purpose than most understand. With that said I recorded this video to explain what that means, especially after losing a beloved friend and Jiu-Jitsu black belt to depression this week.

Our beloved Dave has lost the most important “match” of his life, to depression.

While many of us can’t and probably will never comprehend how anyone with so many positive things in life going for themselves can fall victim to it, the fact is that anyone can.

I am very sad to see that the great Robson Gracie Snr, father of my teacher, Renzo Gracie, has passed away. Years ago Mr Robson Gracie would periodically come up to New York to see his son and stop by the blue basement. When he came we were all expecting a fire-breathing dragon given the nature of his sons! We were completely wrong.

Congratulations to the newest Kids Black Belt Club member, Laney Waters!

8-year-old Laney joined our program in August of 2021. She has been consistent, coachable, a hard worker, and an excellent teammate. Laney enters the Academy with a huge smile regardless of the kind of day she is having and politely suggests to the Instructor different warm-up options or game options for the day. 😁

Growing up in the Gracie Family, was growing up w/ a unique philosophy about food.

The Gracie Diet was created by my grandfather Carlos Gracie to ensure our bodies’ PH was maintained at a slightly alkaline state, inflammation-free, making it practically impossible for diseases to occur and thrive.

Soothing the soul in my birthplace with nature, family, childhood friends, workouts, fruit-filled meals, and tranquility.

It is my personal philosophy that the more time I spend by nature, be it by breathing the cold air from the mountains while snowboarding or jumping in a lake or the ocean for a quick energy cleanse no matter the temperature, the stronger and more well-balanced my body, mind, and spirit become.

A Dad asks another: “Why do you spend so much money with training and tournaments and are always running around to make your son learn how to "fight" Jiu-Jitsu?"
