A quick overview

Carlos Barreto is a 3 degree black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. He leads the country's legendary Gracie Barra school, the pioneer of teaching “Jiu Jitsu for all,” a form of pedagogy that emphasizes the needs of students over the spirit of competition, which is one of the purposes, but not the only. His team of warriors wins medals and tournaments, while children affected by bullying learn self-defense tools and develop self-esteem. They do not lose sleep over the trophies, for Gracie Barra the main ambition is that any citizen, from the housewife to the professional with health problems, knows how to defend themselves and overcome difficulties. In this hostile world, more and more people seek refuge in self-defense, and most do not come with the intention of being arrogant, much less do they want to undergo exhaustive training typical of mixed martial arts fighters. The majority sign up to feel able to improvise if necessary. Gracie Barra Colombia's training programs are designed to avoid dropout and motivate scheduled training according to the time availability of its students.
