Vagner Rocha Kicks Aj Agazarm Off The Stage At Fight To Win Pro
Apparently Vagner Rocha does not care for the antics of AJ Agaazarm. During their most recent match at Fight To Win Pro Rocha not only tried to hit AJ in the face, but kicked him in the butt; right off the stage.
Not cool, but it is a bit hilarious to watch.

Rare Helio Gracie Footage To Celebrate His October 1st Birthday
Grandmaster Helio Gracie was born October 1, 1913 and passed January 29, 2009. He is credited with being one of the founding fathers of our beloved sport of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
Helio was not physically a large man. His lack of an imposing physical stature caused him to make adaptations to the Jiu Jitsu that he had learned from his older brother Carlos. Eventually his adaptations would allow for the smaller person to be able to defeat the larger person. Before Helio Gracie, “size mattered” in terms of combat sports and self-defense.

Thankfully video camera technology was around to chronicle the rise of Gracie Jiu Jitsu, and thankfully it is all available on YouTube for the world to witness. Much of the footage below is quite rare and would probably have gone largely unseen were it not for this age of video sharing. That being said I hope you enjoy!
