Regardless of how you feel about BJJ, MMA or whatever else, Professor Helio Gracie is as much an institution in Martial Arts as anyone and his passing is a loss not just for grappling, but for the martial arts community at large. RIP.
http://www.graciemag.com/news/144/ARTICLE/13149/2009-01-29.htmlIt 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-Jitsus success in Brazil and the world died this morning, at home, in the district of Itaipava, in the mountain region of Rio de Janeiro.
