It’s with great pleasure that we can announce
Grandmaster Relson Gracie’s first UK visit to the Eddie Kone Academy of
Saturday 7th October
Sunday 8th October
Price to be confirmed.
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.

This weekend just past saw rising star Terry ( Dominator ) Claim the Londsdale ww BAMMA Tittle from an opponent who boasted a record of 16-1-0.
This match had the makings of being the main event, Brazier who was a heavy under dog in this bout not only showed his heart and his ability to absorb shots, but also showed how professional he was throughout this whole build up to this match.
Brazier has been learning jiu-jitsu under the watchful eye of Professor Eddie Kone and the team at Eddie Kone Academy of jiu-jitsu London for his past four fights.
Still only a white belt Brazier now has his eyes set on stepping his game up and claiming a world title.
Please email us if you would like to sponsor him for his next upcoming match.
