BROTHERHOOD | INTEGRITY | DEVELOPMENT
“My life is dedicated to Jiu-Jitsu. My goal was simply to build a brotherhood to lead the expansion of Jiu-Jitsu while respecting the essence of our art. My students are an extension of my family. I want each one of them to achieve their personal best while helping spread Jiu-Jitsu. We must do that honoring the traditions and efforts of those who came before us.”
– Carlos Gracie Jr.
1st Degree Black Belt
Ancelmo started his Brazilian Jiu Jitsu voyage in 2002, in Sorocaba, Sao Paulo. He says of his early years: "I started in Jiu Jitsu because of my father's encouragement, it was a way to educate me, I fell in love with the sport that changed my life."
Since those initial years Ancelmo has won several regional, national, and international titles. Having relocated to California, he came to Utah in 2018 where fell in love with the State and is now the Head Professor at Gracie Barra Park City. He balances his love for Jiu Jitsu with his passion for fitness and wellness, something that resonates deeply in this community.
His dedication to the many branches of the sport: self defense, competition, fitness, and the mindset that comes through Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is evident in everything he does. In his own words: "Jiu Jitsu is the most special part of my life! I had the pleasure of working with a social project, where the focus was to educate people through sport."

Our instructors are trained to interact and offer gentle correction for children and teens who practice the art of Jiu-Jitsu. Children over the age of three can begin their training at any of our 700 Gracie Barra Schools, experiencing the true power of brotherhood and integrity.
Gracie Barra starts students off in the Fundamentals program where training in common self defense situations like escaping head locks and clinch to takedown is an integral part of all student’s introduction to jiu jitsu. After completing the Fundamentals classes, students start to focus more on sports jiu jitsu positions that make training with the other students a lot more fun.

Private lessons are a great way to gain an edge over the competition and advance your abilities on a faster timeline than your peers.
