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

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.

2 new Blackbelts at Athy BJJ Dublin.

Wednesday 14th December i left for Dublin Ireland to corner a fighter on the BAMMA / Bellator which was taking place at the 3 Arena in Dublin.

While i was in Dublin i attended my Black belt Mick Aldridge academy in Athy to teach a workshop. While i was there i promoted Mick Aldridge to the rank of 1st Degree.

After the seminar with my blessing Mick promoted 2 students to the rank of Black Belt.

Louis McMahon and Andrew MCconvile .

Huge congrats guys well done.

Look forward to seeing you soon.

Blind you say ?????

Words can not explain how I felt tonight after watching my purple belt student teach the class in my absence.

“Why would this leave you speechless I hear you ask” , “well this purple belt is blind”! ……….

Having taught & practiced jiu-Jitsu alongside this incredible individual for the past 4 years I often forget he is visually impaired, visiting jiu-Jitsu practitioners are not forewarned that he has a visual impairment yet this talented young man arrives in the academy day and night practicing and refining his skills sparring and training alongside sometimes the most elite professional MMA & UFC fighters.

Tonight I witnessed him reveal another chapter in his journey and this has been one of my proudest moments of not only being a teacher but as a human being.

Tonight I was truly humbled…….

Thank you jiu-Jitsu and the Gracie Family for teaching me to to speak the global language of our art, to be able to share with everyone & anyone especially those who are less fortunate & considered to be disabled.  Osssssssss
