Rener Gracie

Gracie University Chief Instructor

Ryron and Rener Gracie are the eldest grandsons of Grand Master Helio Gracie, the creator of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. Their father is Rorion Gracie, one of the world’s foremost experts in self-defense. In 1993, Rorion created the Ultimate Fighting Championship to showcase the supremacy of the family’s self-defense system in a realistic “no holds barred” confrontation against all comers. Rorion’s younger brother, Royce, won 3 of the first 4 UFC tournaments proving that the leverage-based techniques of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu provided the most reliable way to defeat a larger, more athletic opponent. Ryron and Rener were born into this family tradition of testing the art against all challengers.

Rorion introduced his sons to the art as soon as they could walk. As children, they watched him teach private classes in their garage in Southern California. But, it wasn’t until they observed their father and uncles – Royce, Rickson, and Royler – easily winning challenge matches that they began to comprehend fully the effectiveness of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. Even more important, Ryron and Rener recognized the profound impact the family’s art had on all who studied it. The life changing transformations of Gracie University students motivated the brothers to teach the art. While constantly perfecting their physical techniques, they worked equally hard to master the powerfully effective instruction methods developed by their forbearers. In 2003, Grand Master Helio Gracie awarded Ryron and Rener black belts in recognition of their mastery of his unique techniques and teaching methodologies.

PBS3 Intro Class

Congratulations on achieving Purple Belt Stripe 2! In the Purple Belt Stripe 3 course you will be introduced to eight more Micro Principles on your path to 32!

Principle 17: False Surrender

Feigning surrender so that your opponent lets their guard down. In combat, most of our actions are predicated on what we perceive to be the mental state of our opponent.

Principle 18: Depletion

Draining your opponent’s physical and mental energy using targeted actions and connections. In a fight, the rate of energy depletion is often the key deciding factor in determining who will win and who will lose.

Principle 19: Isolation

Tactically containing of one or more of your opponent’s limbs for your advantage. Whether used for the finalization of a submission, the neutralization of your opponent’s defensive structure, or the impediment of movement, the Isolation Principle is about gaining a resource advantage through the restrict...

Principle 20: Sacrifice

Giving up something of actual or perceived value to gain a tactical advantage in another form. When progress is not possible in using convention methods, you might consider making a sacrifice.

Principle 21: Momentum

Capitalizing on mass in motion to maximize efficiency against your opponent. Momentum can be used to facilitate movement while conserving energy in a fight. In some instances, the momentum exists, in others, it needs to be created using one or more additional principles.

Principle 22: Pivot

Increasing the effectiveness of a technique by changing the angle of its application. Angles are everything in jiu-jitsu. By merely changing the angle of any technique, you can increase (or decrease) its: leverage, control, base, tightness, and more.

Principle 23: Tagalong

Seizing the “free rides” in the fight to save your energy while depleting the opponent’s. Discomfort creates movement, and movement creates transitions, and transitions create opportunity if you own the Tagalong Principle.

Principle 24: Overload

Disproportionate application of your resources to target a specific part of your opponent’s body. Just as multiple attackers have a significant advantage against a single person in a street fight, the Overload Principle gives you a significant advantage over a single part of your opponent’s body.
