This week our team was crowned with the #1 place at the IBJJF Team Ranking. Watching Master Carlos Gracie Jr. walk up that stage to receive the award on behalf of the GB Family was an amazing moment of achievement and celebration.
Even though our team has always been about much more than tournament results, competition continues to be a very important part of who we are and what we do. The energy on the training camps and the performance of our athletes pursuing their championship dreams inspires all GB team members around the world.
We believe this award means more than being number one. It reassures that the vision of Master Carlos Gracie Jr. of teaching Jiu-Jitsu for everyone by building GB schools in cities all over the world through the hands of instructors is the direction of growth and prosperity for GB and its people including athletes, coaches, school owners, and, of course, students.
This accomplishment was only possible because of our massive and quality presence in tournaments hosted by IBJJF all over the world. Thanks to all GB members making our team bigger, better and stronger in their region.
