Royler Gracie

Royler Gracie is the fifth son of Grand Master Helio Gracie. He has been competing as a black belt for more than twenty years. During his career, he has fought more than 300 matches and has won the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu World Championship four years in a row along with several national and regional titles. He has been one of the most active Jiu-Jitsu competitors in history, always eager to test himself against opponents of any size.

When one looks at Royler, the most striking characteristic is his slight frame. His lack of brawn has made Royler the technician par excellence. He is totally dependent upon superior technique for victory. This technical perfection makes Royler one of the most skillful and knowledgeable members of the Gracie clan. He is the pure Jiu-Jitsu man’s fighter, precise, relaxed and always looking to employ technique and strategy against strength. This makes him one of the most sought after instructors in the martial arts world. He is the living embodiment of the martial artist’s dream of skill and technique overcoming strength and aggression.

In 1989 he came to the United States to help Rorion, Royce, and Rickson with the opening of the Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Academy in California. Since then he has successfully competed in a variety of no-holds-barred matches in Japan and in the USA.
