Rener Gracie defends online teaching of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Jason Silva-USA TODAY Sports

Rener Gracie defended himself against critics of his long-distance and online teaching of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, although members of his own family are unhappy with his methods.

Grandson of Helio Gracie, Rener Gracie has been criticised for his method of distance teaching Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu using the internet. With part of the disapproval coming from his own relatives, like Relson Gracie and Renzo Gracie, the BJJ master defended himself in a interview for Tatame magazine.

Some people don't understand that the online study is even more effective than the traditional. In a regular class there are students of all belts, the teacher gives the same lesson for all of them. In an online class, each one has specific instructions. Some people tried to learn in the presencial classes but the lessons were random and some of them had difficulty. What did they do? They appealed to Gracie University.

Rener and his brother Ryron are instructors of several UFC fighters, such as Ronda Rousey, Lyoto Machida, Mark Munoz and Jake Ellenberger.
