Great day today as we got to attend the first class at Gracie Barra Birmingham's new location just outside the city centre. The location is excellent with some very quirky interior design throughout. Also we had the privilege of a seminar from the one and only Roger Gracie teaching some of his signature details that has made him the 14x multiple world champion that he is. In a strange coincidence it is actually almost 20 years to the day that Roger's father Mauricio Gomes opened Gracie Barra Birmingham in the Custard factory less than 5 mins away from this new location! A lot has happened over the years to develop BJJ in Birmingham to the point at where it is today and Gracie Barra Birmingham has always been one of the main reference points for this and for the development of BJJ not only in this area but for visitors from all over the world taking advantage of the facilities and high level training here. The atmosphere was very positive and it was great to see everyone in attendance sharing this opportunity to see the new chapter of GB Birmingham and we cannot wait to see what a great training location this will become over the next coming months / years. Congratulations Braulio, Ciara and team on a job well done.
