From legendary Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and MMA master Rickson Gracie comes a riveting, insightful memoir that weaves together the story of Gracie’s stunning career with the larger history of the Gracie family dynasty and the founding of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, showing how the connection between mind and body can be harnessed for success both inside and outside the From legendary Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and MMA master Rickson Gracie comes a riveting, insightful memoir that weaves together the story of Gracie’s stunning career with the larger history of the Gracie family dynasty and the founding of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, showing how the connection between mind and body can be harnessed for success both inside and outside the ring. Undefeated from the late 1970s through his final fight in the Tokyo Dome in 2000, Rickson Gracie amassed hundreds of victories in the street, on the mat, at the beach, and in the ring. He has joined the pantheon that includes Bruce Lee, Chuck Norris, and Jackie Chan as one of the most famous martial artists of the twentieth century. Jiu-Jitsu, the fighting style developed and pioneered by his family, has become one of the world’s most prominent martial arts, and Vale Tudo, the “anything goes” style of Brazilian street fighting over which the Gracies had a monopoly, was an early precursor to the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Simply put, without the Gracie family, there would be no sport of “MMA,” no 4-billion-dollar UFC empire, and no “Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu” at strip malls all across America. In Breathe, for the first time, Rickson will share the full story of how his father and uncles came to develop Jiu-Jitsu, what it was like to grow up among several generations of world-renowned fighters from the Gracie clan, and the principles and skills that guided him to his undefeated record. From learning to assert himself on the streets of Rio to gaining fame and honor in Japan and emerging through heartbreaking tragedy, the martial arts master shares tales of overcoming challenges, extolling universal virtues and showing readers how pride and ego are the enemies of success.  With never-before-seen photos and profound insights into the sport and way of life that only a studied legend can provide, Breathe is an entertaining and magnified view of an enduring legacy as well as an inspiring tale of weathering life’s complexities and overcoming them with style and grace.

    Rickson Gracie is probably the greatest fighter--real fights, not rules restricted sport fighting--in the last 100 years. The stories of what he was capable of have been legends for decades. Some of that is his physical build, but only a little of it can be attributed to that. He is big, but not the biggest guy at all. He is fast, but so are other people. What sets him apart is his training and his mindset.

He is fast, but so are other people. What sets him apart is his training and his mindset. Training: He grew up being trained in a unique style that was invented by his father and uncle, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. It's not world famous, entirely thanks to his family. He started when was still a toddler and lived a life completely consumed by this, dropping out of school at 13 to focus on fighting for money and running training classes. (Plus, he spent several years living a wild, truly lawless life with the gangs of Brazil.) Mindset: It's not what most people think. He's not a rage machine who is ruthless. He is actually calm, fully present in the moment, accepting of even death if that's what it takes. He describes it as being in the flow state. If you're into martial arts or pro sports, then this is a fascinating glimpse into the mind of the greatest of all time. I can't resist saying that it's also heartbreaking to me to see the turmoil he has been through in his relationships. From his mother and father to his son and his wife, serious trauma happens again and again. This family figured out how to fight, but they didn't figure out how to live well. They achieved greatness in their field, but at what cost?

Lovers of the sport would love the tips, the tricks, and the philosophies of Rickson as he lays them out in the book. Even those who are not into the sport will come to appreciate the level of candour displayed by the author and the lessons jiu-Jitsu provides for all. WHAT I DISLIKE The first few chapters delve into the Gracie family and how Rickson came to be born. It looks at the family dynamics and idiosyncrasies of the Gracies. The author presents how it shaped him and made him who he is today. I feel this section of the book could have been made shorter as it was a tad too long. Having said that, the earlier chapters do provide a solid background and good insights into the rest of the narrative. WHO THIS IS FOR Breathe is for practitioners and non-practitioners of jiu-jitsu. Everyone should be able to take one or two lessons from the strange and incredible life of Rickson Gracie. Many thanks to Dey Street Books for providing a review copy.

Whenever there has been a mention of history of BJJ in any podcast, mostly Joe Rogan Experience, specially related to martial arts and MMA, the name of Rickson Gracie would have came up again and again, as the champion of this historical family and clan.

Whenever there has been a mention of history of BJJ in any podcast, mostly Joe Rogan Experience, specially related to martial arts and MMA, the name of Rickson Gracie would have came up again and again, as the champion of this historical family and clan. As a martial arts enthusiast and BJJ practitioner myself, I have always been curious. I thought Royce Gracie was the champion of the Gracie family since the UFC was initially concocted to demonstrate the dominance the Jiu Jitsu over other martial arts, which he one prevalently. But as the time went on, and mostly due to the conversations that Joe Rogan had with Jean Jacques Machado, I got more and more skeptical about Royce's impact. The inevitable outcome was me purchasing this audiobook, listening to it in a couple of sittings and also listening the episode with the author himself. The book covers the history of Gracie family and how and why the Gracie Jiu Jitsu was created. It covers the stories, mostly personal, in a pretty down-to-earth manner, which had had verified before with other BJJ figures. It's a unbelievably great read / listen for anybody interested in martial arts, let alone JJ. Another note to mention here is, as I was introduced to Bushido, the concept of the "Way" in Japanese martial artists, samurais and related topics, I managed to cover copious amount of sources to figure out what's really going on. So far, most of the martial artists, fighters and athletes, either don't completely understand it or just stick of physical aspect of it. As far as I comprehended so far, it's beyond any physicality, dominance in their respected martial arts category, and history. It's also about mental aspect of it, how to connect with surroundings, nature, spirituality (which I haven't been able to achieve it), and more importantly, and how to "know thyself". Rickson Gracie, the author, has been and is an exemplar of this, and tells his stories in a stoic manner that makes enjoying the read / listen of this title, inevitable. //

    The first thing they teach you in our academy when starting Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, is that it is in fact called Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. The Gracies are probably the most known family of martial artists in the world. There are a lot of legends and myths about them, but also a lot of proven facts which seem contrived and too good to be true. The Gracies have many "enemies"; people are annoyed at them, jealous and envious. So it's often hard to understand some of their history.

The Gracies are probably the most known family of martial artists in the world. There are a lot of legends and myths about them, but also a lot of proven facts which seem contrived and too good to be true. The Gracies have many "enemies"; people are annoyed at them, jealous and envious. So it's often hard to understand some of their history. The Gracie rise was before the internet and cameras on every phone, so a lot of the Gracie legend comes to witness accounts, which could have their own motivation. Anyways if i go to the book itself, i can only say "wow". I expected a lot from this book given the high reviews, but i was blown away. I don't remember the last time i read a book where i lost sense of time while reading it. Suddenly closing in on the last chapter it was 2am, but i decided to push through and read till the end. I've read that the Gracies were odd, but holy cow. Rickson literally grew up in a cult and wasn't aware of it. The stories of his life are incredible. Don't want to spoil anything, but a fiction writer would hardly dare to put some of the things i read in a book so it would not sound too unreal. But where the book shines the most is in the style it's written. I don't remember the last time where i read a book where the author was this direct about himself and his past. Rickson doesn't care what people will say when they will read the book. He is raw. He is honest. He does not try to portray himself as a saint. More importantly, he does not try to apologize for the mistakes he made in his life. He understands the pain that they sometimes caused, but doesn't run away from it or try to rationalize it. He talks about drugs. About sex. About cheating. About fighting. About death. It's really a great book. Even if you are not a martial artist, you can learn a lot from reading it, and seeing the experience of a man that has experienced as much as Rickson did.

    This autobiography of the phenomenal Brazilian Ju Jutsu practitioner, Rickson Gracie, begins with ancestral origins that include a Gracie who fought in the US Civil War through Rickson’s boyhood in Rio and his professional fights in Japan, and onward to how he reinvented himself after family tragedy and the end of his fight career. Along the way, he conveys lessons learned not only through personal experience and from his father and uncle, the founders of Gracie Ju Jutsu, but also through his st This autobiography of the phenomenal Brazilian Ju Jutsu practitioner, Rickson Gracie, begins with ancestral origins that include a Gracie who fought in the US Civil War through Rickson’s boyhood in Rio and his professional fights in Japan, and onward to how he reinvented himself after family tragedy and the end of his fight career. Along the way, he conveys lessons learned not only through personal experience and from his father and uncle, the founders of Gracie Ju Jutsu, but also through his studies with Olando Cani -- a yogi and developer of bioginastica. While the book is overwhelmingly about a life in Ju Jutsu, Cani’s influence plays a crucial role as the yogi taught Rickson about breath control, and, among a huge pack of skilled Gracie fighters, that ability was pivotal in Rickson’s rise to the top. (The book’s title, “Breathe,” hints at the role breathwork played in Rickson Gracie’s legendary capacities for enduring, flowing, and keeping his head in seemingly unfavorable situations.) The memoir is candid, offering insights into not only Rickson’s path to success, but also his failings (which, not unexpectedly given his single-minded obsession with Ju Jutsu and fitness, more often involved life as an impetuous youth, as a father, and as a person – generally – than it did his life on the mat.) The book also explores some of the fissures in the Gracie clan and how they grew under the pressure of the family’s mammoth success. With autobiographies, it’s always a challenge to know how true a picture one is getting, but Gracie’s willingness to self-critique makes this book feel truthful. This book is fascinating and highly engaging. If you’re interested in martial arts, it’s a no-brainer for one’s reading list, but any reader who enjoys a memoir of a life intensely lived will find the book highly readable.

    I read /Breathe: A Life in Flow/ by Rickson Gracie: https://www.bloodyelbow.com/2021/7/30... The book took me back to the 1990s when I did some marketing work for Semaphore Entertainment (the progenitor of the UFC) during the days of the first 10 or so UFC fights. When I started working for the company, I thought of myself as a non-violent person and a pacifist, but when I attended my first UFC fights in person, I surprised at how much I enjoyed the fighting.

At UFC 6 in Casper, Wyoming I remember jumping up when Tank Abbott destroyed his opponent in about 10 seconds and emitting a primal roar/scream. That's the word; there's something primal about the UFC and about vale tudo and about a member of a species dominating another member of that species. I got to see Royce Gracie (Rickson's brother) compete in the UFC, winning his first 11 matches by submissions, going 11-0 to start, and winning UFC 1 when it was tournament-style. That introduced me to the whole world of Gracie Jiu Jitsu. /Breathe: A Life in Flow/ is not the best-written book, but I was reading it for the knowledge, the stories, and the background. Great story.

    Too short! But great. As soon as I heard about this book I pre-ordered it. At first, I was hoping for a little more detail, some more insight into the legend that is Rickson Gracie, but the benefit of getting an account of how things happened from the perspective of the man himself is priceless. Rickson Gracie's voice is also a pleasure to read. He is direct and visual, sometimes gruffly poetic.

To Rickson they are inseparable, and he feels that every human being can benefit from his martial art, and from his wisdom. I must say I would agree.

    Pros :: Why would I even pick this book up? The cover and title say it all and I knew that this would be a book about spiritual lessons more than fighting lessons. Yes, you have to train. And train hard; life is full of disappointments, challenges and heartache. It’s much easier to stay in a fetal position and whine. I’d rather eat chocolate and bon bons then have to do the hard work. However, I will do the hard work to the best of my ability, give up the bon bons (not the chocolate, though). Co Pros :: Why would I even pick this book up?

    This book is the autobiography of Rickson Gracie and chronicles the Gracie family and there contributions to the sport of Jiu Jitsu. It will give the reader an insight into Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and it’s history in Brazil and America. If your a jits guy you’ve probably already heard about It. If your thinking about starting Jiu Jitsu. Don’t read this book- go to a Jiu Jitsu school and roll. Then read the book.

    What an amazing look into the life of "the greatest Gracie"! I found this book honest and engaging, a badass look and a truly badass martial artist. I specifically enjoyed his approach to the martial arts, as a true warrior not just a competitor, but as a practitioner who see the world through the lens of a code he guides his life by. We need more of that in the martial arts. Highly recommended! What an amazing look into the life of "the greatest Gracie"!

    Excellent auto biography by Master Rickson Gracie. I have been fortunate to meet Master Rickson a few times and train with him and I was fortunate enough to receive my black belt from one of his black belts. This book is an excellent introduction to not only his philosophy on Jiu-Jitsu and how it applies to life but also a moving and intimate account of his life. Recommend.

    Rickson has lived a life so different from my own. I am inspired by his singleminded commitment to his craft, his focus and how in touch with nature he is. I hope to continue to incorporate meditation, breathing and rigorous training into my daily routines so that I may obtain a slice of what Rickson talked about in his book

    One of the best books I’ve ever read. “Breathe” takes an intimate look at one of the most respected martial artist of all time in Rickson Gracie. His work ethic, warrior spirit, and mental toughness will inspire and captivate you from beginning to end. His example of leadership and insights on teaching make this a must read.

    A collection of Rickson’s wisdom This book is a page turner, it took me 2 days to cover all the pages. It’s based on essays about the most important passages in Rickson’s life. It offers a different perspective of the fearsome black belt from the Gracie Clan, more humane and more focused on growing as a person and as a community.

    4.5 stars A quick, easy, and very interesting read. Rickson is/was considered one of if not the best Gracie to ever step into the ring. Regardless, this book shares some history of Gracie JJ, and very personal stories from Rickson’s life. A MUST read for any true martial artist.

    Rickson Gracie is likely the greatest Gracie fighter that most UFC fans have never heard of. He was smart about managing his career and developed his skill in line with an extreme set of values inherited from the martial arts tradition.
