Tim Tebow training with the Gracie family
Tim Tebow has begun training with some of the baddest men on the planet ... men who revolutionized the art of hand-to-hand combat ... the legendary Gracie family.

In case you're unaware, the Gracie family basically built the UFC -- and badasses like Royce Gracie have destroyed countless opponents by using a special form of Brazilian jiu-jitsu created by his  father, Helio Gracie.

Now, the New York Jets quarterback has joined up with the Gracie family at their headquarters in Beverly Hills -- where he was training with Royce's nephew Ryron Gracie and UFC heavyweight Brendan Schaub (in the grey shirt).

After the training session, the Gracie brother's tweeted about their newest pupil, "Everyone please give a warm welcome to the newest member of the Gracie Family."

Ryron also tweeted to Tim ... saying, "Your athleticism/intelligence makes teaching Jiu jitsu even easier!"

Ya so what hes working out with Ryron Gracie and Brendan Schaub good for him. I cant understand why everyone always picks on Tim Tebow he does nothing wrong and all the HATERS HATE ON HIM. Tim Tebow is what this world needs more men should take lessons from him, very real person on and off the field does alot of good things from the heart like putting smiles on sick kids faces what a wonderful thing. I HAPPEN TO LIKE TIM TEBOW VERY MUCH. GO JETS 2012!!! =)
