In 1914, a small Brazilian man named Carlos Gracie learned the forbidden secrets of Jiu-Jitsu, a martial art developed by the warrior classes of Japan throughout the centuries. “The Gracies and the Birth of Vale Tudo” is a feature documentary that profiles this larger than life guru. Together with his brothers, Carlos created free-for-all competitions (Vale Tudo) and built an army of modern-day warriors.
