Kayron Gracie Biography

Kayron Gracie was born on the 4th of May, 1988 in Rio de Janeiro – Brazil. He is the oldest son of CBJJ (Confederacao de Brazilian Jiu Jitsu – aka IBJJ) president “Carlinhos” Gracie who is also the founder of Gracie Barra – one of Jiu Jitsu’s strongest teams. Though his first sporting passion lied with surfing, Kayron also started training BJJ from a very young age, competing for the first time when he was 9 years old at the Brasileiro (Brazilian National Championship), a competition he would win the following year as a junior yellow belt.

When Kayron was 17 years old, he moved to the United States, where he continued to compete (and win) while also beginning a career as a coaching member of the Gracie Barra team. Though he received his black belt from the hands of his father (on October 2009), the main responsible for Krayon’s tuition in the sport throughout his life was Marcio Feitosa. Marcio was also his main inspiration as a fighter when growing up.

In 2008 Kayron Gracie showed true toughness at the Mundial (World Championship). He fought in the Open Weight, and after a gruelling fight where he was pushed to the limit and ended up puking outside the arena after the win, he returned to the mat in exhaustion to fight Joao Assis (a fight he ended losing). Though he did not medal in the absolute, he did manage to win his weight class.

    About his lineage… It's not accurated. Think correct is: Carlos Gracie Sr > Helio Gracie > Rolls Gracie > Carlos Gracie Jr…

    Rolls Gracie taught Carlinhos.
