The Rice Brothers are a family of elite Brazilian Jiu Jitsu competitors with deep ties to the Redding community.  John Dill first introduced BJJ to Shasta County in 1994 after training with the legendary Rickson Gracie, Rorian Gracie, Royce Gracie, Royler Gracie, and Rigan Machado.  This tradition of elite training is being carried on by the Rice Brothers.  Tanner Rice received his black belt under 7 time world champion Rubens "Cobrinha" Charles and is one of the few to be chosen to compete under his prestigious name.  He doesn't take this honor lightly and his passion for helping his students excel can be seen on the mats every day.
