Many people credit the success and popularity of Brazilian jiu-jitsu to the Gracie family. In 1994, Rorion Gracie brought Brazilian jiu-jitsu (Gracie jiu-jitsu) to the attention of the world by starting the UFC. He wanted to prove once and for all that his family's system was essential in learning how to be successful when engaged in combat. They intentionally used Royce Gracie, who was the smallest fighter, to prove that you didn't have to be the biggest or strongest person to win a fight. Weighing only 170 lbs, Royce won 4 fights in a single night to become the first ever UFC champion, submitting all of his opponents. If you're looking to learn self defense and you don't know how to defend yourself on the ground, YOU DON'T KNOW HOW TO DEFEND YOURSELF!
