I'm emphatic when we talk about of the relationship of Brazilians with their idols. Here in Brazil the idols are only good when they win or are in a good moment in his career. The entire legacy is forgotten after a defeat or when not won as in the career peak or when it appears a new star. I thought about it all after witnessing in the BJJ Worlds 2016 the honor of the IBJJF paid to our idols of the past, world champions and pioneers in sports. The sport lives of idols, so if we do not create this mindset Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu never reach in the level it deserves. Today I would like to pay tribute to our great and dear Master Carlson Gracie. A tough guy heavy, with a refined Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, courage and above average intelligence, charismatic, controversial ... Well, I could spend a few minutes made to describe adjectives to master Carlson figure, but with so much story to tell, but little space to live up to this legacy, I made a gallery with a few moments of his career as a fighter, as a teacher and as a friend of all.
