This is our Jiu Jitsu lineage. Respect your roots. #Repost @caiqueacademy with @get_repost ・・・ #wbw to Master Caique practicing with GM Hélio Gracie. . . The interviewer asks "what made you such a good fighter?" "The power of leverage, I put a crowbar in every technique"
“The Jiu Jitsu I created was designed to give the small and weak a chance to face the heavy and strong.” -Helio Gracie
Today, Helio Gracie’s birthday, is known as Helio Gracie Day in the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu community. It is a day to reflect on not only the skills, but the benefits, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu has brought to our lives. Grandmaster Helio’s fundamental goal was to give the smaller, weaker person the confidence to live their lives.
The instructors at Warrior Way are thankful to Master Caique Elias for passing down the philosophy and teaching principles he received directly from Grandmaster Helio himself. We are honored and proud of the lineage we represent; and hold it in the highest regard.
It's effective for more than small people! The art was changed for the better when Grandmaster laid the groundwork! The Gracie liniage is the foundation for any of the world's self defence programs! Several of my students and myself have walked away unscathed from alterations becuase of you! God bless and thank you to all my Jiu-jitsu professors at Caique jj and WW martial arts!
Happy Birthday Helio.
It has helped me in altercations both on and off duty. #reallife
I can't tell you the incalculable blessing and life courage I found from his teachings and the incredible honor it has been to study under his lineage of honorable men. #Dreamcometrue #GraiceJiujitsu #TeamCaique #IndyBJJ
Happy heavenly birthday Grandmaster Helio. It is such an honor to have studied your craft.
