Archival Ryron Gracie Challenge Match Video

December 4, 2012

16-year-old Ryron keeping it playful as a blue belt!

Even after the UFC blew up, people still didn't believe in the effectiveness of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, so they often showed up at the Gracie Academy to test it for themselves. In this cool archival footage, you see Ryron engage in one of his first challenge matches as a 16-year-old blue belt. Even though they were "grappling only" challenges, without striking, it's beautiful to see what Ryron was able to do to a much heavier, much stronger, grown man. Simply amazing.
