In 1925, Carlos Gracie established the first Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Academy in Brazil. In 1978, Rorion Gracie brought Gracie Jiu-Jitsu to the United States, and in 1989 he established the first Gracie Academy on North American soil in Torrance, California. To accommodate the worldwide expansion of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, the Gracie Academy moved to a larger facility in 2017 and was rebranded as "Gracie University" to reflect the shift from a single academy to a global organization. Today, Gracie University serves as the headquarters for hundreds of Certified Training Centers around the world, and hundreds of thousands of practitioners who are learning through the online portal. We invite you to join us on the mat at Gracie University Torrance to learn first hand what separates us from the rest!
