"Harnessing the power of teamwork to support local athletes and contribute to the competitive greatness of Gracie Barra"

In 2018, Gracie Barra Arizona launched the GB Ambassadors Program, aiming to unite team members and support local athletes in their pursuit of excellence through competition. This program not only benefits the athletes but also contributes to the overall success of Gracie Barra.

Initially conceived by GB Oceania in 2016, the GB Ambassadorship has expanded to other regions within Gracie Barra, demonstrating its positive impact and popularity.

By forging partnerships with local businesses, organizing fundraising events, and providing specialized group and private classes, the program successfully sponsors talented local athletes. These sponsorships cover various aspects such as travel expenses, training gear, tournament registration fees, and ongoing training support for all GB Athletes.

During the 2018/19 season, the program set an ambitious goal of raising $25,000. These funds were exclusively raised by the non-profit entity EQUIPE GB Arizona and were dedicated to strengthening the GB Arizona Competition Team and supporting individual athletes.

Our Purpose


The GB Ambassador Arizona Program serves two purposes. Firstly, it aims to unify everyone behind Gracie Barra, enhancing training and fostering team unity. We organize GB Training Days, Seminars, and Special Private Training sessions to boost skill levels and promote unity.

Secondly, the program supports our athletes financially to compete globally. We encourage as much participation as possible to help the program grow and potentially expand in the future.

While primarily for athletes, the program benefits the entire GB community in Arizona by aligning everyone with Gracie Barra's values and philosophies. This leads to an improved training level and a stronger, more successful team. Our Head Instructor's thoughts on the program reinforce these goals.
