What is Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Really?

What is BJJ?

 

Rorion at UFAF Convention, Las Vegas, July 22, 1988

gHe [Helio Gracie] learned from a former world champion that went to Brazil about 70 years ago and he learned the basics from the Japanesec..actually his older brother Carlosc..and this Gracie jiu-jitsu has actually been developed by our family from the last 60 years. So itfs not exactly the same kind of jiu-jitsu that you find in Japan. We got the basics from the former world champion and then we developed our own style, so thatfs what the Gracie jiu-jitsu is called to differentiate this style from all other styles of jiu-jitsu that you might have heard of. We, you know, we could have called it something else but since we got the basics from jiu-jitsu, 60 percent of what we do today has actually been developed by our family. So itfs not exactly the same thing. Itfs kind of a variation of it.h

Interview with James Williams and Stanley Pranin, August 27, 1994:

gMy father Helio is the one who actually masterminded what we now call Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. Initially he taught the traditional Japanese Jiu-Jitsu that he learned by watching my uncle [Carlos]. In time, through trial and error, he kept polishing the art and made it more refinedc..h

gThe movements and chokes you see in judo and other Jiu-Jitsu practitioners are basically the same ones we do. The techniques that we have in jiu-jitsu were not invented by my father. He never claimed to do that. What he did was make the art a little more accessible to the weaker person.h
