The Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Network Europe (GJJNE) is today one of the oldest, largest, and professional Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu associations.

The Network was founded by Master Franco Vacirca and Master Demetrio Vacirca back in 1995 in Zurich, Switzerland. The Network is personally supervised by the great Grandmaster Carley Gracie (Red belt and son of Carlos Gracie), in order to maintain and pass-on the authentic art developed by Carlos and Hélio Gracie, the founders of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu and master-mind behind the Gracie Way.

We are proud TEAM-members of the Jiu-Jitsu Global Federation since its foundation by Grandmaster Rickson Gracie back in 2014. For more Information please visit www.jjgf.com
