Gracie Barra

Gracie Barra is a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Association, with over 700 schools on six continents. The organization was founded by Carlos Gracie, Jr., (to the members of Gracie Barra, he is known as Master Carlos.) who was born on January 17, 1956 and grew up heavily influenced by his family, especially his father Carlos Gracie Sr. and his brother Rolls Gracie. While working as Roll's assistant instructor, Rolls suddenly died and Carlos was asked to assume the head instructor role. Source :
