View Full Version : Gracie nationals Columbus
This past Saturday we had 3 people from our class compete. We had 2 firsts (females) and 1 second. It was a great meet and I got to see (i think) Relsons son compete. Someone said it was his boy. He competed in the blue belt division and he was tight. He went from one move to another with out hesitation. He represented the family extremely well.
I tell you it would be hard to carry that name just because you know anytime you go against somebody its going to be on. people I imagine would go harder than normal. I heard one guy say its just a name and then he went out and got schooled. Its more than just a name its a way of life for them.

I was at the Nationals too. Relsons son's name is Rhalan and he did veary well. He competed with the adults and tapped everyone. He just turned 17 a few months ago but is veary tuff, and technical. Being that he is a good friend of mine always makes me nervice to watch him compete. A great deal of stress comes with the name Gracie. I also got my Purple Belt from Relson later that night. It was a good trip. Me and a Royler Gracie BB Victor Huber drove all the way from El Paso, Tx to be there and Im glad I did. Thanks for coming out and suporting our event, and congrats on your victories. Hope to see you at the Arnolds in March.
Congratulations on your purple D.J.!

I've thought about that as well. Having "Gracie" as your last name could be highly motivating, but I bet it is an extremely heavy burden. No "off-nights" for you. No vacations. Heck, what if you decided you really weren't interested in jiu-jitsu and just wanted to run a flower shop or be a music teacher.
