Kyra responded to the induction in the comment section, with great excitement:

OMG! It’s an honor and a privilege to be part of this list! Being an ADCC champion was always my dream.

Being a 4th degree BJJ black belt and a black belt in Judo, Kyra Gracie is also a great-granddaughter of the legendary Carlos Gracie Sr. She is the fifth athlete to be inducted into to Hall of Fame, after Roger GracieAndre Galvao, Marcelo Garcia, and Ricardo Arona.



Earlier this year, Kyra Gracie told GracieMag (translated from Portuguese) ten essential lessons for those just starting out in Jiu-Jitsu:

1. Jiu-Jitsu is an art that develops in anyone 7 samurai virtues: uprightness, benevolence, respect, honesty, honor, loyalty and, of course, courage.

2. As my family’s experience proves, it doesn’t matter about size, strength, age or gender. That’s why your whole family can also experience the benefits of Jiu-Jitsu, from birth to old age.

3. Look at your way of life and realize what you would like to change. We reinforce in our school 5 keys to health: rational nutrition, sensible exercise, efficient rest, hygiene and positivity.

4. Technique must always be more important than strength. If any of your movements are being made with above-average effort, ask the teacher how to improve leverage and save energy.

5. Training Jiu-Jitsu is learning from the past and thinking about the future. Learn from the masters to keep knowledge alive for new generations.

6. Jiu-Jitsu unites. Training in the family and with your children is a way to make emotional bonds stronger.

7. Have you ever thought about actually being a hero with “superpowers” ​​for your child? With Jiu-Jitsu you’ll allow yourself to be the example your child wants to follow forever.

8. As you develop your skills, pay attention to your self-knowledge and discoveries about yourself.

9. Few activities lead to a balance between body and mind like routine Jiu-Jitsu training. If something distresses or bothers you physically or mentally, look for a good gym.

10. Jiu-Jitsu is for life: it’s never too early or too late for you to put on your first gi and get started. Good training!
