family saga documentary
16 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this film at a screening in New York City. It is a beautifully interwoven family saga that teaches the evolution of Jiu Jitsu from its roots in Japan to the Gracie family in Brazil and ultimately to the Ultimate Fighting Championship! Awesome!!!!! There is some really good bloody footage. Watch the teeth fly through the air!!! But somehow the director manages to keep it all very artistic by gently telling the story of the Gracie family who perfected this martial art form and spread it all over the world. He interviews several members of the Gracie family and weaves in the history of the martial art with beautiful images of Brazil.
