About Royce Gracie

Royce Gracie’s reputable career as a fighter began in 1993 after winning the first Ultimate Fighting Championship. His brother Rorion came up with this innovative challenge as a way to show the world Gracie Jiu-Jitsu.

Discipline after discipline was defeated by the slight 6'1", 180-pound Royce Gracie. His opponents consistently outweighed him by more than 50 pounds.

He went on to win three UFC titles and today is the only man in the history of no-holds-barred matches to successfully defeat four opponents in one night.

The legend of the Gracie family began in Brazil with Royce’s father, Helio Gracie.

Today, Royce is privileged to spread the techniques perfected by his father all over the world. Throughout his busy fighting career, Royce has maintained a rigorous travel schedule of seminars and classes. His list of students is enormous. Royce has taught many of the big-screen greats like Chuck Norris, Ed O’Neal, Guy Ritchie, Jim Carey, and Nicholas Cage.

He has also been very active with the CIA, FBI, DEA, Secret Service, Army Rangers, Army Special Forces, Navy SEALs, and many sheriff and police departments. His reach also extends internationally to all continents. He has 50+ networks in the United States and many other international locations.
