    There Is No Shortcut in Life! Where's Your True North?

    There Is No Shortcut in Life! Where's Your True North?

    I always say that Gracie Essentials is much more than just a new brand of supplements and vitamins in the market. It's actually a way I found to take my father's legacy to the next level, by helping people to overcome their physical challenges.

    So, in order to make this happen there is one thing one cannot forget: stay always truthful to your principles. Remember where you came from and do not let the society pressure corrupt your most valuable asset: Your True North, Your Mission in Life. This is the actual direction you have to follow. Doesn't matter how slow or how fast, but do not take easy detours. There is no shortcut to life.

    And that is where all the concern with the quality of our supplements come in the scene. I would never accept to add anything in my formulas that could go against everything I learned during my entire life journey.

    Gracie Essentials, the best quality functional nutrition for everyone, whether you are an athlete or just a weekend warrior, this brand was made for you. 

    And if you want to know more about my father's legacy, download for free the e-Book "7 Life Hacks by Grandmaster Carlos Gracie". A real journey through the real history of Jiujitsu and the modern MMA.

    The Real History Behind the Origins of the Modern Multi Martial Arts

    The Real History Behind the Origins of the Modern Multi Martial Arts

    There are many controversial histories behind the origin of the modern MMA and how this new combat sport became so popular in the entire world, changing the life of millions. But I can tell you the real facts, show you pictures and give you my personal testimonial, because this is also the history of my family's legacy.

    Everything began when my grandfather Gastão, tried somehow to channel the energies of his unsettled son, convincing him to take martial arts lessons with a Japanese immigrant called Mitsuyo Maeda, aka Conde Koma. At the age of 14, in 1916, my father Carlos Gracie became the first Gracie to learn Jiu-Jitsu.

    That was how a very troublesome boy, who used to play with the caimans in the rivers of Belem do Para, north of Brazil, began the legacy that would grow exponentially until the modern days, several years after his passing.

    Curious and endowed with a strong sense of observation, my father studied and learned the JiuJitsu techniques in a prodigious way, earning Maeda’s trust.

    To have an idea of the specialization level my father reached in applying the techniques, he was able to tell the opponent in the sparring sessions that he would submit him with an arm bar in his right arm. The opponent was then very alert to the moves, hiding the arm, not giving a chance, but that was completely useless. My father was always able to execute the move anyway.

    That marked the beginning of the technical improvement and innovation in the techniques. The beginning of the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, the Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. At around 22 years of age my father made a profession of the Gentle Art in Rio de Janeiro, to where the family had moved. He sought adversaries by issuing public challenges, sowed the seeds of the modern MMA, set up an academy attracting influential figures from high society and structured a family into the most famous martial arts clan in the world.

    On his very particular way of seeing the world, my father, Grand Master Carlos Gracie, was just in the beginning of his amazing journey.

    What happens next and what are the lessons learned? Well this is long so, in order to help to spread my father's history to younger generations, I put together several pieces of materials, publications, memories and created a bilingual e-book (English/Portuguese) where I summarized his main life lessons, which brought me here where I am right now and were able to perpetuate his legacy until today.

    This is my LIFE! This is my WAY!

    This is my LIFE! This is my WAY!

    My name is Rilion Gracie. I am the youngest son of the Grand Master Carlos Gracie Sr., founder of Gracie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and the creator of MMA. I have been involved in my father’s tradition since I was born. I grew up in the world of mats, healthy living, improved life skills, spiritual development and philosophic concepts of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu.

    In the 1920s, my father, Grand Master Carlos Gracie Sr. (image) realized that he had to find a way to make a major change in his life, keep his body strong and increase longevity, for passing on his legacy to the entire Gracie family. That scenario set the tone for a major breakthrough in history, with the creation of a totally new healthy living lifestyle method based on three concepts:

    1. Not poisoning the body
    2. Taking care of it
    3. Respecting the adequate chemical combination of different types of food in a meal.

    In that same sense, after many decades of learning, I am proud to launch Gracie Essentials® that has as a goal to provide the purest and best quality functional nutrition and supplements for all kinds of athletes and sports enthusiasts who value those same principles.

    The Gracie Essentials® products are free of toxic substances that can cause harm to the human body and are formulated with premium ingredients.

    This is the way I found to take the next step of my journey, through a modern concept of my father's legacy, being able to help millions of people in their physical challenges and spreading the healthy lifestyle mindset around the world! Hope you can join me on this endeavor!
