Carlson Gracie Jiu-jitsu – Rio de Janeiro, an historic academy that has maintained it’s location for decades.
The CGJJ academy was originally founded by the late Carlson Gracie Sr. and has seen hundreds of champions pass through it’s doors to give their all on these famed mats in Copacabana.
When you enter the 302 (actual number of the academy’s physical address) on Rua Figuerido Magalhaes there are no polished floors or sparkling new mats, CGJJ academy’s grit is apparent. Just as apparent as the grit in it’s athletes who’s resilience and undying will to smash their opponents carries on.
Many battles have taken place under this roof both in training and to uphold the pride and respect of Carlson Gracie Jiu-Jitsu’s name. That pride and respect for the late Carlson Gracie Sr. and his teachings is still very much alive in the 302.
