Welcome to our family:

My name is Professor Konrado (in Portuguese). I am a Black Belt in Gracie Jiu-Jitsu and an IBJJF member. I received my belt in 2000 under Professor Rocian Gracie Jr, the Grandson of the founder, 

Carlos Gracie. Rocian Gracie Jr learned from his father Rocian Gracie, Carlson Gracie and several of his uncles and is currently a 5th Degree Black Belt in BJJ.

I myself have competed and trained in Jiu-Jitsu, TaeKwonDo, Karate, HapKiDo and other martial arts even before MMA took off as a sport. 

Rocian Gracie is myJiu-Jitsu brother, my best friend and an uncle to my children. He honored me by naming his son Conrado Gracie after me. Rocian Gracie Jr,  is a fantastic martial artist and his family is close to my family and my heart. 

We worked and trained together for many years in my academy in California and in Brazil until he married and moved back to Brazil to build his organization.

When you train with us you are family.   Call Today (615) 562-0082

Student Reviews

Welcome to our family:

I do consider myself a good fighter, competitor, coach and a teacher who cares about my students whom I consider close family. I have been training for over 50 years and teaching for over 38 years. Since 1979 teaching martial arts is the only job that I have ever had, so to me, teaching martial arts, self defense, fighting and life skills is my life. Even today my family continues our tradition of teaching martial arts and improving lives.

At our academy, we teach several martial arts, but our main focuses are traditional family programs and practical self defense. As we grow as an academy in our local area, we will be competing more in all styles including Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. As our programs continue to grow we will teach our best to produce quality Black Belts and outstanding individuals. Rocian Gracie Jr academies have competed at many top events and have produced several top fighters and champions. The bottom line is, if you work hard and earn it, we will teach you and share all we have learned over the past 50 years.

You might ask why we moved to Gallatin. As a new grandfather and after 38 years of teaching seminars, traveling, operating 12 locations (California, Texas, Arizona, Florida, India) and working as vice president of several big organizations. I wanted to retire near family and spend more time with my children, grandchildren and wonderful wife. I wanted to focus on teaching, writing and enjoying a simpler country, family lifestyle. So in 2011, we as a family, moved to the area to be closer to my wife’s family. We started the BJJ program around 2016.

We decided to open a new 15,000sq academy in Gallatin, so we could offer great family martial arts.  We will open up more classes for advanced adult students once we have several students that have graduate to blue belt. (May 2017)
