Grandmaster Carlos Gracie died in 1994, but his teachings live on through the children and grandchildren of both him and his brother. Creator of a dynasty, Carlos learned Count Koma's Japanese Jiu-Jitsu and made that art into his life's project.
The twelve teachings that inspired Carlos Gracie.

07 – To forget the mistakes of the past and focus your energies on future conquests.
08 – To always keep your peers happy and to have a smile for all who address you.
09 – To employ the most time perfecting yourself, and no time criticizing others.
10 – To be too big to feel rattled, too noble to feel rage, too strong to feel fear, and too happy to feel slighted.

12 – To have the firm conviction that the world will be by your side as long as you stay loyal to what is best about you.
