The Gracie Academy introduces a Gracie shirt to their fall line that pays tribute to one of the original founders of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Helio Gracie. Called ‘The Guardfather,’ this honorary design is a play on the epic films from ‘The Godfather’ series. The theme is quite committed, with the same color scheme and font as the original movies. The tee itself is 100% cotton, with a slim fit that works well with the minimal graphics. As part of the second wave of their summer 2012 shirt collection, this Gracie shirt stands out even though the design itself is relatively basic. Take your chance to get your hands on this iconic tee while you can, and you’ll be honoring Helio Gracie’s contribution to modern Mixed Martial Arts whenever you wear it.
