We recently sat down with 6th-degree Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt and first inductee into the UFC Hall of Fame, Royce Gracie for a brief Q&A.
My first job is still my job today, teaching the art of Gracie Jiu-jitsu and cleaning the academy.
I wanted to fight, lol. I wanted to show my family that I could do what they did.
Walking in a pit to take a picture of two pitbulls while they were fighting.
Oh wow, I have those moments every day with my 4 kids. Ha ha!
I collect post cards from the places I’ve been and flags from the countries I visit.
Hard to pick one… Last of the Mohicans, Braveheart and Gladiator.
Not a lot of people know this, but I tried to fight Mike Tyson. Unfortunately, his people didn’t let it happen. I’m a big fan of his.
Helio Gracie, Rorion Gracie and Royler Gracie
For sure it’s my Heckler & Koch MP5SD. I love the accuracy and simplicity, plus it’s very lightweight.
I’m a perfectionist, stubborn and patient.
