Having our roots and founders close to us draws inspiration. Our inspiration eventually drives our success . This is what Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is all about. Or any form of martial arts for that matter. What inspires you to do well may come from many different forms. Inspiration is the root of all achievements and feats. The human spirit, once inspired, can do great things. Achievement and perseverance are forms of inspiration. Others may see inspiration in different forms. Others look for inspiration for dreams or goals, while some look to other people for inspiration. While others who already are inspired inspire people more. Inspired individuals are contagious. Inspired individuals contribute to the community.
Gracie Barra is an organization that inspires and gives back to those who contributes to its success. Every member of the organization is focused on keeping the fire going for the art of Jiu-Jitsu. From every level of the organization, members strive to reach out to one another and inspire one another. Nothing can be more inspiring to the rest of the group than having the founder himself, Master Carlos Gracie Jr., to be nearby and help out.
