Rickson Gracie is the idol to many martial artists, whether they are a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu practitioner or not.
In this short video of Rickson Gracie by “Citizens of Humanity” he gives us some valuable lessons and quotes he has learned from his study of martial arts.
Here’s some wisdom from a living martial arts legend:
~ If you love what you do, you’re able to dedicate yourself to overcome obstacles
~ The biggest gift I received as a martial artist is, without a question, the capacity to… ‘be in peace’
~ The most important thing is not victory, most important thing is don’t get defeated
~ Martial arts is a great tool to maximize your potential
~ I always strive to challenge myself, push myself, to something unknown
~ The journey has to be based on passion…
(for those of you who might not know who Rickson is, he’s an 8th degree black and red belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and the son of Hélio Gracie. Hélio Gracie founded Gracie Jiu Jitsu with his brother Carlos Gracie.)
