On this special edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with our colleague Kid Peligro about the life and philosophy of the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Grandmaster Helio Gracie, who passed away January 29, 2009, at age 95. Kid is a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt, a senior contributing editor at the ADCC News, and a correspondent on this show. He also is the author of The Gracie Way, and worked with Helio and Royler Gracie on the book Gracie Submission Essentials.
In a lengthy interview, we discuss the legacy and philosophy of Helio Gracie, the main lessons from his long and productive life, what he believed was most important about Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, its role in both self-defense and sports, how Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu revolutionized the martial arts and combat sports and remains the foundation of mixed martial arts, and much more.
