Grand Master Relson Gracie

Relson Gracie, the 2nd oldest son of Helio Gracie, began learning Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu at age 2 and entered his first competition at the age of 10. Relson was the Brazilian National Champion for 22 years straight and during this period he went undefeated.  Relson  became so popular that he attained the nickname “Campeao” or “Champion” among his friends and fans.  Relson Gracie along with his brothers Rorion, Rickson, Royler, and Rolker helped prepare their younger brother Royce Gracie for the first several Ultimate Fighting Championships.  This no-holds-barred competition was formed by Rorion Gracie to showcase the brilliant fighting and self-defense style of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu to the world. What had already been developed and tested in real life self-defense, competition and fighting since the 1920’s in Brazil has now changed main stream martial arts in the U.S. and the rest of the world forever.  Relson Gracie in his early years was known for his many street fights and the brutal and unpredictable style in which he engaged those fights.  Now many years retired from competition Relson Gracie’s philosophy reflects his late father’s, which is to train for self defense and personal advancement.  Relson Gracie currently holds the rank of 9th degree red belt under the direct Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu lineage of his father Helio Gracie.  Relson Gracie’s main Jiu-Jitsu academy is in Hawaii, were he resides, but he travels regularly to visit his Training Academies / Association to conduct group seminars, demonstrations, and private lessons.  Relson Gracie is one of only a few living Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioners to achieve the rank of 9th Degree Red Belt.  The Calvert MMA Academy – Lineage BJJ is honored to offer direct lineage under Master Relson Gracie in Gracie Jiu-Jitsu.  Calvert MMA Academy is Team Relson Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Maryland – Lineage BJJ.
