Relson is the second oldest son of Helio Gracie, who along with Carlos Gracie, is credited for innovating the Kodokan Judo taught by Mitsuyo “Count Koma” Maeda into what is now known as Gracie or “Brazilian” Jiu Jitsu.
Relson began learning the art of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu at the age of two, began competing at the age of ten, and earned his black belt when he was 18.
He went 22 years undefeated as the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu National Champion. Although Relson’s techniques are deeply rooted in Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, Relson also emphasises “street effective” techniques. Relson’s Jiu-Jitsu has evolved to help defend yourself in survival situations where there are no rules.
On April 7, 2013, Relson was promoted to the rank of grandmaster (red belt) the highest possible belt awarded to living individuals in Gracie/Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
