Chuck Norris Tells His Jiu-Jitsu Story

December 10, 2012

From his intro class w/ GM Helio to his invitation to UFC 1

We're in the middle of the Jiu-Jitsu Heaven contest, so it's ironic that two new videos have popped up on the internet in which Chuck Norris (now 72) shares HIS jiu-jitsu story. In clip 1, he discusses what happened the first time he visited the Gracie Academy in Brazil and trained with Royce, Rickson and Grand Master Helio! In clip 2, he explains how he was invited by Rorion to invest in UFC 1, but denied the opportunity out of fear that someone would get killed.
