if anyone has a rare footage of gracie's fighting (early stuff etc) good pictures, or anything else i can put into a documentry, that would be greatly appreciated.......(and prop'd )
If you'd want an old Beach Fight with Rickson then here you go Link
maybe you can use some of the footage of this (you'll need to have a program to download youtube videos, pretty easy to get)LINK
some good footageLINK
Also Rickson has a documentary called CHOKE LINK-part 1
It is broken down to ten parts, all others are in the related section
I was going to suggest CHOKE, but Juanez beat me to it.
There is also footage of Royce's loss to Ismail floating on Youtube, but I think it is poor quality.
There was an A&E special that had Gracies on it too. I don't have a link, but this is the one with Ed ONeil (Al Bundy) featured in it.
The best starting points are the two Gracies in Action videos and Choke. I'm assuming you've already looked at these--if you haven't that's where you should go.
