It was on this very day that UFC 1 took place 21 years ago! This was the day that Royce Gracie shocked the martial arts world with his “new” art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Shortly after this event people began seeking Jiu Jitsu schools and instructors. Over the years our sport has blossomed. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is now a sport, an art as well as an all encompassing self-defense system practiced around the world.
