Master Helio Gracie has passed away

It is with great sadness that GRACIEMAG.com announces the passing of Grandmaster Helio Gracie. At 95 years of age, the great icon and one of those most responsible for Jiu-Jitsu’s success in Brazil and the world died this morning, at home, in the district of Itaipava, in the mountain region of Rio de Janeiro.

Indescribably sad. Master Gracie was nothing short of a legend. MMA as a whole is eternally indebted to him and his entire family for the many contributions they made to the sport.

I don't think anything I could say would do this man justice. Helio Gracie and his family are a huge part of mma and what it has become. Mixed martial arts, and even more so jiu-jitsu will always be in debt to him. RIP Master Gracie.

We lost a legend today, but his legacy and impact on the sport, will always remain.

My condolences go out to the Gracies and those who were close to him.

R.I.P.
