Every single fighter, and anyone who practices a form of martial arts owes a debt of gratidude to this amazing man, who, arguably, is the most important man in the history of Martial Arts.
I would say that Takeda Sokaku, Morihei Ueshiba, Gichin Funakoshi or even Bruce Lee all rank above Helio Gracie in term of importance but, for sure, Gracie is one of the greatest ones.

IMHO... and since he is the only one I ever saw with my own two eyes Gōzō Shioda is the most amazing one... the stuff he did was amazing.
