Who is Roger Gracie?

Roger Gracie is a 10 times Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu world champion. He's the grandson of the founder of the art, Carlos Gracie. Son of Mauricio Gomes and Reila Gracie. The Gracie family have been the driving force in the growth of BJJ and the revolution in the martial arts around the world.

And what is The Roger Gracie Academy all about?

Roger has put together a team of instructors from Brazil, and other parts of the world, all trained to the highest standards of BJJ instruction. Together, they teach the Gracie family's system of BJJ at the world famous Roger Gracie Academy in London, and at associated schools throughout the UK and the rest of the world. The Roger Gracie Academy is well known for the exceptional atmosphere that is fostered there. All of the members are treated as part of a big family, and the result is a relaxed and enjoyable place in which to train. The school is run by Cesar Lima and now all BJJ at Gymbox is run by the academy.
