Episode 32 - Mauricio Gomes

Mauricio Gomes is a 7th degree coral belt in BJJ, one of the "famous five" under Rolls Gracie and father of Roger Gracie.

It was a absolute honour to be able to sit down with Mauricio and talk about his life and jiu jitsu. In this episode we talk about the history of the Gracie family, Mauricio's connection and relationship with the Gracie's, especially Rolls, how he travelled around to Japan and the UK to spread jiu jitsu, his own personal competition career, the career of his son Roger Gracie, self defence vs sport jiu jitsu and much much more.

Mauricio is a living legend of the sport and it was great to have him share his story.
