Carlos Gracie Jr.
My life is dedicated to Jiu-Jitsu. My goal was simply to build a brotherhood to lead the expansion of BJJ while respecting the essence of our art.
My students are an extension of my family. I want each one of them to achieve their personal best while helping spread Jiu-Jitsu.
We must do that honoring the traditions and efforts of those who came before us.
