Carlson Gracie Academy

9 years after the unfortunate death of the incredible master Carlson Gracie, the builder of the legendary Jiu Jitsu and total MMA team, which was the Carlson Gracie academy, it is planning on closing its doors. This school was originally founded by Carlson during the 1970s and it was responsible for giving hundreds of boys hope as they were able to overcome their poverty and lead another life through the martial art. The widow of the master is beginning to suffer in her own health as well, and she feels that she will be unable to manage the gym. In order to make sure that it gets the graceful send off that it deserves, she is planning on closing its doors and making sure that its legacy is remembered for the wonderful opportunity that it was for so many people.

  1. I hope someone sees this message. I want to call Carlson Gracie black belts, mainly Brazilian Top Team and American Top, to take over the Carlson Gracie Academy and avoid its shut down. Please do it in memory of our beloved Master Carlson Gracie. A lot poor kids have benefited from this academy, and it would be sad to see this happening. Please save the academy!
