First, have you ever heard about GB Online?   

Gracie Barra was founded in 1986, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in a neighborhood called Barra da Tijuca. Our founder, Master Carlos Gracie Jr,  a visionary who planned and made it possible for Gracie Barra to develop and expand around the world. A man wholead the growth of an organization from one school to more than 800 around the world. Amazing, isn’t it?

With all this growth and more than one hundred thousand team members around the world, Master Carlinhos (his nickname) once again saw the need to create a platform where all GB team members around the world can connect, learn and evolve their Jiu-Jitsu and brotherhood (one of GB values).
