Today the world mourns the passing of a legend. Grand Master Helio Gracie is the father of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. His art transformed the logic in which people viewed fighting forever. As a result of his martial arts genius, people all over the world (literally) young and old have benefitted(sp?) from his style and knowledge in terms of health and confidence. His life involved alot more than martial arts though and is worth reading about...please pray for him and his family. Helio Gracie founder of Gracie Jui-Jitsu has died in his home in Rio de Janeiro, this morning at the age of 95. He was the father of the legendary fighters Rickson Gracie, Royler Gracie, Relson Gracie, UFC co-founder Rorion Gracie and First UFC champion Royce Gracie. Helio Gracie: Why fear death? I dont need anything, I dont have anything, I dont want anything. I think its silly for somebody to be scared of dying. One should be afraid of being born. I have already told my children when I die I want a party, with no alcohol, no hell raising [general laughter]. But I want a party with music, food I dont know if you guys believe in reincarnation, but we all go and come back until the day we no longer have to return. My brother [Carlos Gracie, already deceased] used to say the fellow only stops returning to Earth when he mingles with the Whole. Even when youre thinking just a little bit wrongly, you come back to continue evolving. Hell, my friends, is right here on Earth.
