Rolled Up Episode 41 - Clark Gracie

Rolled Up Episode 41 - Clark Gracie
 

Rolled Up is back after almost a year of hiatus and this time we head to San Diego to meet up with Clark Gracie. It's not hard to notice Clark amongst people in the crowd. With his stunning good looks he's been made known around the world as the "Ridiculously Photogenic Jiu Jitsu Guy".

Several memes later and a visit to Good Morning America and Clark Gracie has become in instant internet celebrity. But what most of the world overlooks is the fact that this Gracie family member is an extremely talented black belt in the middle weight division carrying multiple medals across many tournaments and has one killer omoplata!

Part 1

San Diego California is known for it's almost perfect year round weather and among many other things, the jiu jitsu. Probably home to more Black Belts than Rio, San Diego is also home to Clark Gracie. Son of Carley Gracie, he's the most competitively active member of the Gracie Family today. Budo Jake spends the day with Clark for a little San Diego fun, jiu jitsu and to learn a bit more about the ridiculously photogenic jiu jitsu guy.

Part 2

Clark Gracie takes us to his La Jolla academy to visit with his good friend Rafael Dallinha. Here Clark runs class and shows us some of his favorite open guard positions and attacks as well as some unique details on finishing his favorite position, the omoplata.
