Rener Gracie is a JiuJitsu BlackBelt, an Entrepreneur, Inventor, and Chief Instructor at Gracie University- my jiujitsu academy. :)
Rener is a third-generation Gracie, son of Rorian Gracie who is responsible for bringing the Self Defense Martial Art of JiuJitsu from Brasil to the states JiuJitsu is now one of the most popular martial arts disciplines being trained worldwide
Rener is unarguably one of the greatest JiuJitsu Black Belts walking the planet and he is equally one of the greatest teachers of the martial art discipline. His love and passion for JiuJitsu are absolutely infectious as is his desire for the masses to learn JiuJitsu. It was from his passion that Rener created the world's largest online platforms for learning Gracie JiuJitsu. I believe Rener is truly an engineer at heart. His ingenuity is remarkable- he has a SOLUTION based mindset.
Not only is this easily seen through his incredible jiujitsu skills and all that he has created within his business, but it’s also what led him to create Quick Flip, a high-quality hoodie that shifts into a light wearing backpack. This invention took him on to Shark Week where he gave one of the greatest pitches (if not the best) the show has ever seen.
It actually went viral- it was THAT good.
One of the most notable aspects of Rener’s characters is his “RENERGY.” He is robust, potent, and effective in his creations + his communication skills as you will CLEARLY absorb from this epic talk.
On a personal note, I have to say Rener is one of the greatest guys I’ve ever met in my life. He is a loving husband to my girl, Eve Torres Gracie, and father to their two boys Raeven + Renson. He is my one of my brothers, Mike Saffaie’s, very of best friends for great reasons- he is caring, genuine, and loyal. My family and Rener’s family have been very close for decades- they are those incredible + consistent friends who become family.
In this elevating conversation Rener and I get down on all things JiuJitsu:
How JJ affects your confidence
How JJ came into my life
When + Why Rener created Gracie University online
How Rener and GU family have pivoted through Covid to maintain business
What Solo JJ is and why this is taking JJ skills + Rener’s problem-solving skills to an entirely new level
How + WHY JJ is more than a martial art but also an approach to life
We also get down on talks on why Rener created Quick Flip and I promise you will not only be learning but also laughing with enjoyment as you take in his RENERGY. :)
Honestly you guys, I cannot say enough great things about Rener, he’s the real thing and I’m so proud to share his incredible mindset and powerful frameworks with you all.
It’s not even a question of if you will love this episode, the question is when are YOU starting JJ if you don’t already--it’s one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life because of how it has impacts me on and off the mat.
I would love to ask for some support by sharing this EP on your IG stories and tag both Rener + I on it. Additionally, it would be AMAZING support to give us a 5-star rating and review this podcast via Itunes so we can keep it growing and bring you more EPIC guests like Rener.
