Think only about the best, work only for the best, and always expect the best” Grand Master Carlos Gracie
Have you ever stopped to think that the GB philosophy ‘Jiu-Jitsu for everyone’ extends far beyond the mat? Many of us are already aware of the Jiu-Jitsu lifestyle, which combines training, a healthy diet, strong bonds with family and friends, self-discipline and a never-ending journey to become a better person.
OK, so we’ve all been there. You’re struggling, unsure what direction to head in, what course of action to undertake. But have you ever stopped to think that our philosophy is going far beyond just changing the lives of those who practice Jiu-Jitsu and can help people of any age, gender and social background?
Yes, that’s right. Today Gracie Barra is a worldwide community of over 400 schools spread around the globe. It has been making a difference in the lives of countless people regardless if they practice jiu-jitsu or not. Do you know the reason behind our success?
Being committed to the philosophy we’re trying to popularize, all of GB’s practitioners and representatives become great examples to their immediate family, friends and co-workers and we all know that change starts with ourselves! Through the power of the personal example, we gradually lay the foundation for a larger scale of followers who are willing to embrace our philosophy and adopt it as their own.
As people around us start to watch out what they eat, take care of their physical and mental health, become less stressed and start enjoying life more, many will eventually become actively involved in the practice of the gentle art too. And those who have never stepped on the mat? People, that are not practicing the sport are also following the ‘jiu-jitsu for everyone’ philosophy. These are people who have adapted to our philosophy for a better lifestyle, better community, BETTER WORLD .
Become part of the GB philosophy and Master Carlos Gracie jr’s vision. Always strive for a better world and make a difference in people’s lives.
GB Jiu-Jitsu is for EVERYONE, even those who are not actively involved.
