Focus Gracie Barra
Gracie Barra is one of the largest organizations of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu in the World. Founded in 1986, the Gracie Barra has grown to become famous in the world of martial arts.
"We seek to train the body, mind and soul through the highest level of education of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and we see it as a vehicle for individual self-fulfillment and strengthening of the family spirit, Going beyond the notion of victory, defeat, or competitive spirit. " Mr. Carlos Gracie, Jr.
