Jiu-jitsu Visionaries Charles and Ralph Gracie Join Forces to Unveil The United Gracie Tournament Sept. 22-23 2001

      San Francisco, CA, Sept 10th, 2001- World renowned Gracie jiu-jitsu legends Charles and Ralph Gracie are proud to announce that they have come together to put on the United Gracie Tournament. This event will take place September 22-23, 2001 at San Francisco State University.
      "The United Gracie Tournament is more than just another jiu-jitsu event," says Ralph. "The United Gracie Tournament will be an unprecedented jiu-jitsu event for several reasons. Not only will we have the world’s finest men and women jiu-jitsu practitioners competing under one roof, we’ll have a fantastic contest of children jiu-jitsu students! It is important to us that we attract more young people to the event. We feel strongly that this art can help give children a higher level of mental and physical confidence and inner peace."
      "It is also the greater goal of my brother Ralph and I to consolidate the jiu-jitsu community here in the U.S." says Charles. "United Gracie will host a closed-door conference of Black Belts at an as yet undetermined location. The plan is to see how we as leaders of the jiu-jitsu community in the United States, can work together to create new standards for our students, academies and ourselves to better service those who seek to learn the art of Brazilian jiu-jitsu. United Gracie is more than a name. It’s a philosophy of communion that we hope to share with those genuinely dedicated to enriching the state of jiu-jitsu. All jiu-jitsu schools are encouraged to participate."
      To date, the academies of Royce Gracie, Rickson Gracie, Renzo Gracie, Fabio Santos, Claudio Franca as well as many jiu jitsu schools from Brazil and across the country have already signed up. See you there!
