Grand Master Helio Gacie has passed away....
WORDS FROM MINOL
Even that my Jiu Jitsu style doesn't come from Helio Gracie I respect him for what he did to this great martial art we have today. Helio was also the founder of the first Jiu Jitsu Federation in Brazil, and today became the International Federation of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
Even being a Grand Master Helio was always learning and teaching new things too, and at the age of 95 years old he still wore his Gi for training. I didn't have a chance to meet him but I leave here my word to say THANK YOU Helio Gracie for what you've done to Jiu Jitsu and wherever you are rest in peace.
