Happy Birthday to Rorion Gracie

January 11, 2012

The Grand Master turned 60 on January 10th

He was born in 1952, promoted to black belt in 1970, graduate from law school in 1976, moved to the United States in 1978, establish Gracie Academy in Torrance in 1989, created the UFC in 1993, introduced Gracie Jiu-Jitsu to the U.S. Army in 1994, published the Gracie Diet book in 2011, and somehow managed to have 10 kids along the way. Keepin it real is an understatement. Happy birthday to the man who sacrificed everything to make sure everyone could learn Gracie Jiu-Jitsu.
