    I have to do an informative speech for my public speaking class... So I decided to do it on BJJ.
    Now, I've read the Gracie Way (which I used to own but can't find) but what else can I get. I need a few sources.
    So I'm talking Sherdog articles, books, interviews, the whole thing. I just need legit sources.

    there is the reila gracie book about the gracies, called "carlos gracie". it is only available in Portuguese, but is is were I based most of my gracie profiles, like Carlos sr, Helio, Rolls Gracie and Carlson, I hope you find them useful. If there is anyone in particulair you would like to know about, I can dig in the book again and try to find it for you...

    thanks to both of you.

    The speech is more or less a history of thing.
    What is it, Where it came from, what made it famous and where is it now.
