Jiu-Jistu Master: Unlock Confidence and Achieve Balance with These Principles w/ Rener Gracie

Cultivate an Empowering Approach to Wellness That Equips You With The Skills To Overcome Any Adversity

Today, we have the privilege of hosting a truly remarkable individual whose life story is intertwined with the very fabric of martial arts and combat sports. Please join us in welcoming World Champion, Rener Gracie, a name synonymous with Brazilian jiu-jitsu and a legacy that stretches back to the roots of the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship). Stick around as we discuss how being a MMA World Champion has shaped his views on confidence while finding peace and balance.

“The reason why the world is falling in love with jiu jitsu is because it changes the practitioner's operating system more profoundly and in less time than any other activity that we know of. Every single time you step on the mat, you're being reprogrammed literally as to how you face adversity in your life.” @RenerGracie  

And now let’s jump into Episode 1488 of The School of Greatness!

“ Learn how to fight so you never have to fight. That's the whole game. I don't get into fights as an adult because I was so empowered with Jiujitsu that there isn't an altercation that I can't verbally deescalate.” @RenerGracie
