Who ever shows up on the way in, is going to have to fight against my fighters.” Carlson Gracie Sr.  The IBJJF European Championship is the second largest BJJ tournament in the world. Thousands of athletes are traveling every year to Lisbon to fight for the titles. As well it is really important for us to participate, show our flag and represent our roots. This year we had the honour to fight the 2018 Europeans united with our friends and family from all over the world as a Carlson Gracie Team! 101 bull dogs stepped on the mats and fought their battles to keep the legacy alive, dedicate this special time in the year to give back and show our greatfulness for our Masters, who paved the way for us. This was our big chance to prove our words with the matching actions, the behave that reflects and at the same time creates our loyalty to the team.

Believe: check; Optimism: check; Commitment: check; Dedication: check; Hope: check; We fought until the end with the support and loyalty of our Pound for Pound family from all over the world and made the 2nd team place in the overall Gi division! This outstanding performance of 21 titles with only 20 fighters speaks for itself (8x 1st place / 6x 2nd place / 7x 3rd place) Grateful for our team win we brought the trophy to the place where it belongs, a place where we train hard on our...
