Was ist gracie bjj

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu entstand im frühen 20. Jahrhundert, seine Wurzeln liegen jedoch im viel älteren japanischen Jiu-Jitsu. Der Brasilianer Helio Gracie ist bis heute berühmt dafür, diese klassische japanische Kampfkunst umgewandelt zu haben.

Seitdem Helio Gracie das Fundament für BJJ gelegt hat, hat es sich die Großfamilie Gracie zur Aufgabe gemacht die Kunst immer weiter zu entwickeln. Heute gibt es auf der ganzen Welt hunderte von BJJ Schulen viele davon immer noch von Mitgliedern der Gracie Familie geführt.

Unser Headcoach Felipe Cançado war selbst Schüler einer Gracie Akademie in Rio de Janeiro und hat sich vor einigen Jahren mit Fenriz zusammengeschlossen um die erste offiziele Gracie Akademie in Berlin zu eröffnen.
