    Just find out about Rolls Gracie, real game of thrones kinda story. Why isn't this guy mentioned more often?

    > Being son to both carlos and helio (and having to be threated as a bastard by both sides).
    > Rivalizing with all his brothers from both sides, still managing to best of all of them (even as one of the smallest of the family).
    > Used the benefit of being a flight attendant's son to travel the world and train other martial arts.
    > The first gracie to mixted jiu jitsu with other fighting styles. (wrestling and sambo)
    > Arguably the most influential guy to jiu jitsu (Only lived 31 years)
    > Real potential to have been the GOAT if he had not died so early in a hang gliding accident.

    Great story teller the video guy by the way, no bias

    You have to wonder what kind of names they're gonna be coming up with in 20 years time... Ronaldinho Gracie... Raspberry Gracie... Rising Sun Gracie... Rotten Gracie... And so on...

    In all seriousness though, i bookmarked the video to watch tomorrow, nice one.

    The few blackbelts he promoted are greatly respected.

    Carlos Sr. lived a yolo life. It was Helio who trained and disciplined them kids. He wished Rolls was his son.

    It is a sad story, how his real father Carlos wanted nothing to do with him so Helio adopted him and took care of him.
    From everything I heard of this guy he was the real deal, he was different then the rest. Sad he passed so young.

    Crazy that from the rolls arriving home as helio's "first" son, also came the other children.
    Since helio's first wife couldn't bare children she allowed him to get rolls' nanny pregnant and raise them as her own. So all the other helio's sons also had two moms.

    Idk man, it's quite common for some cultures. It's not that he hates Rolls, he loved Helio too and Carlos has 21 kids or something before he died.

    Lots of misinformation in this. No he was not the first. The gracies learned Judo originally and got private tutoring in catch.
