JOHN DANAHER: ROGER GRACIE IS THE GREATEST OF ALL TIME

By June 21, 2019 BJJ News

Jiu jitsu’s standout philosopher and leglock innovator, John Danaher, has sighted Roger Gracie as his candidate for the tile of GOAT within the world of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. As a stalwart of Renzo Gracie HQ in New York, John has seen Gracie’s career develop first hand in the blue basement, where Roger spent much of his time in the build up to major competitions. 

Taking to Instagram, Danaher said:

“Mr Gracie was unquestionably the greatest Jiu Jitsu competitor of all time and is also a truly superb teacher – he gives incredible insight into his seemingly simple, yet very deep and unstoppable game. The days when Roger Gracie would come to class here during his MMA career and during build ups to big grappling events were some of the best memories I have over my career and it’s incredible to see how he has created himself into a truly great teacher with a great school in London.”
