The art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) originally an off shoot of classical Judo and Jujitsu, was introduced to Brazil by Japanese migrants in the early 1900’s. The most famous and well-known of the initial students would have to be the Gracie family.


The World’s #1 Grappling System

With over 100 members actively involved in teaching, training and competing in BJJ and MMA competitions, worldwide, the Gracie family are generally credited with founding the art. And certainly its introduction to North America with Royce Gracie’s amazing run in the early UFC and other Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) competitions has spearheaded the growth of this MMA discipline.

A lesser known truth is there are several students of Maeda as well as Luis Franca, with Owaldo Fadda being his top student, who also helped galvanize the importance of BJJ. The Franca style of Jiu-Jitsu slightly differentiated itself from the Gracie families’ Jiu-Jitsu, but proved to be no less effective on the mats. This brand of BJJ actually won a historic closed door inter-school challenge between the two academies.
