Where It All Began

The Birth of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu

Carlos Gracie Senior was a child full of energy and mischief, who often found himself in trouble. His father was at a loss for how to channel his son's energy into something positive, until a friend suggested enrolling him in a martial arts class with Judoka Master Mitsuyo Maeda. Carlos took to the class immediately and thrived in this new hobby.

Carlos Gracie and the Legacy of Jiu-Jitsu

Unfortunately, the Gracie family had to leave for Rio, so Carlos could no longer attend Maeda's classes. Rather than giving up, he decided to teach himself and his brother Helios, using the knowledge they had gained from Judo. The two brothers developed their own unique style, which would eventually become known as Gracie Jiu-Jitsu.

Carlos was a family man, and he purchased a large house in the mountains to house many members of his family. The house was always buzzing with discussions about Jiu-Jitsu, and the family had their own matted area where they trained the children. The Gracie diet was also developed by Carlos, and followed by everyone in the house.

The Rise of Gracie Barra

As Gracie Jiu-Jitsu evolved, a club was established in Barra, Brazil, which would become known as Gracie Barra. Today, there are over 700 Gracie Barra schools worldwide, all following the same teaching styles and ethos. Gracie Barra Jiu-Jitsu is not just a martial art, but a way of life for its practitioners.
