The Instructors Certification Program (ICP) is the most important of all Gracie Barra's learning platform It was designed by Master Carlos Gracie Jr. to provide BJJ Instructors all over the word with an opportunity for continued education. It lies on the heart of GB's Jiu-Jitsu learning systems because it represents the most important link between the methods and systems developed by Master Carlos Gracie Jr. and the work done everyday by hundreds of GB instructors on schools all over the world.
