Posts Tagged ‘october 1st’

October 1st was a good day. From now on, I believe that I will remember that October 1st is Helio Gracie’s birthday, without a reminder, and take time out of the day to give thanks and respect.

As usually, I made the morning fundamental class. It was clear that today was  a special day, Helio Gracie’s Birthday. The professor spent time talking about Helio on the mat and we all enjoyed the practice. There was an official celebration at the school in the evening.

To finish the day, I read a great post which revealed the person Helio was, as follows:

” Helio believed that street fights were created by cowards. ”
” Helio believed that Jiu Jitsu could be applied to all aspects of life.”
” Helio believed that perfect technique could over come size and strength.”
” Helio believed he was better than no one and could learn from everyone.”
” Helio believed that Jiu Jitsu made us more tolerant, compassionate, and humble.”
” Helio believed that we should be practitioners of Jiu Jitsu but of efficiency.”
” Helio believed he was not a fighter, but a teacher who fought for what he believed in.”.

Thank you!
