Powerful Statement from Long-time MMA Fan

July 14, 2010

"Ok, so I've kept up with the Gracies since seeing the adds in Black Belt Magazine before UFC 1. I think I was the only one in the room that night who knew who the Gracies were. As a former youth wreslter I preached the gospel of grappling many times before UFC 1 and dispensed many would be nay sayers applying the principles of grappling in impromptu matches throughout my young adulthood. I was excited when Royce won UFC 1. It got me back on the mat and training with guys who wanted to learn grappling. I started Judo to learn submissions not knowing the link between Judo and GJJ. Over time it all came together. I've trained and rolled with many reputable instructors over the years. What I notice is that great instructors have a knack, a way, a tone, an intangible characteristic that grants them the ability to transfer knowledge and make people successful at what they are teaching. You guys have that. Keep up the good work, you are a credit to your family, and your legacy. I was not a fan of GJJ until now."
