Helio Gracie passes the final guard

On January 29th 2009 a true martial arts genius has left us in the passing of Helio Gracie.

It's hard to imagine anyone who has had more of an impact on the way the martial arts are practiced around the world today.

Through his Jiu jitsu that he developed he showed the world what real self defense was all about, and he never shrunk from

a challenge to prove it.  In the process he changed millions of peoples lives for the better. 

We live in an age where the rank of Martial Arts Master is claimed to be held by many, but Helio Gracie was one of the extremely

rare individuals who lived up to the title.

Rest in Peace Master Gracie.
