Event description


The Gracie Barra World Summit


The I GB World Summit is a three day event hosted at the Westgate Resort & Casino in the City of Las Vegas, Nevada, United States.

Each one of the days is dedicated to one of the three pillars that have made Gracie Barra the largest and most successful Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu team in the world: GB Legacy, GB Jiu-Jitsu, and GB Competition Team.

As you can see below, these pillars guide the schedule of activities creating a life-changing learning experience designed to inspire, instruct and connect students (and their families), athletes, staff, instructors, school owners, and regional leaders from all over the world as one global Jiu-Jitsu community.

The GB Legacy Day (Thursday, October 19)

Day one is dedicated to Keeping Alive the Legacy of Gracie Barra and Master Carlos Gracie Jr.

Multiple rooms allow focused activities to take place simultaneously giving you the opportunity to participate in live workshops, roundtables, speeches, and practical group exercises addressing topics such as GB History, GB Philosophy, Jiu-Jitsu Entrepreneurship, GB Teaching Method, Leadership and the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Lifestyle.

The first day will end with the GB Legacy Award Dinner where you will have a chance to dine with your Gracie Barra peers from all over the world. You will take part in a historical event where Black Belt Professors with 25 Years of GB will receive the Legacy Award in recognition for their contributions defending the Red Shield and bringing Jiu-Jitsu for Everyone.

The GB Training Day (Friday, October 20)

The second day of the GB World Summit will be dedicated to the complete Jiu-Jitsu of Gracie Barra.

Some of the best and most recognized athletes and professors from our team will be joining forces in a "never seen before" series of Master Classes and Seminars bringing your Jiu-Jitsu game to a whole new level.

The GB Training Day is founded on the Jiu-Jitsu for Everyone approach.

Three mat areas will be assembled allowing for simultaneous activities focused on different topics, age groups, and levels while keeping all GB team members together.

This setup will allow us to host Jiu-Jitsu Master Classes that meet specific learning needs and make sure the GB Training Day is attended by everyone from young children, teenagers, ladies, and beginners to high level students, black belt professors, and world champions.

At specific times of the Training Day, all attendees will gather in one gigantic training area of 10,000 square-feet to take part in the GB Seminars. The highlight of the day will be a Historical GB Seminar with our founder, Master Carlos Gracie Jr.

The Training Day will end with an epic Drilling and Training Session and the official GB World Summit Group Picture.

The Tournament Day (Saturday, October 21)

The third and last day of the Summit will be dedicated to the Gracie Barra Competition Team. The renowned EQUIPEGB involves not only GB Athletes defending the Red Shield in tournaments all over the world but also their professors, training partners and supporters who make their dream of becoming a champion of Gracie Barra possible.

The CompNet will be hosting the first Gracie Barra North American Championship giving you and GB students from all over the world an opportunity to compete in a safe, friendly and yet highly technical environment.

The morning of the Tournament Day will be dedicated to GB Kids ages 3-15.

The afternoon will be dedicated to Juvenile and adult divisions white to black belt.

The evening will be dedicated to the Gracie Barra North American Championship Pro Divisions. The winner of the Pro Divisions will receive a championship belt and an air ticket to compete at one of the major tournaments in the 2018 season.

But the GB Tournament Day is not just about tournament matches. A training area on the side will be used to host competition oriented Jiu-Jitsu Workshops with some of the most accomplished instructors of Gracie Barra.

Last but not least, the GB Tournament Day is launching the GB Ambassadors Program. You will have the opportunity to meet and support the team of GB Athletes officially sponsored by Gracie Barra in the season of 2018.
