I am a Gracie Barra team member in Texas. I had an opportunity to train at the Gracie Barra Head Quarters in Irvine for 10 days during my trip to to watch the Jiu-Jitsu World Championships. The training there was very technical and classes were usually taught by a Black Belt Professor. One night Master Carlos Gracie jr. was there teaching a class and it was a threat to share the mats with such a legend of our sport. Everyone was friendly and helpful.
