Jiu-Jitsu for Everyone

” GB Downers 4th Anniversary is a huge success “

The celebrations of our 4th anniversary started with the seminar with Prof. Vinicius Draculino Magalhães, one of the most prominent figures of the Gracie Barra Team. Prof. Vinicius Draculino Magalhães led a house packed seminar with emphasis on the self defense and the importance of a complete Jiu Jitsu, applicable to all scenarios and circumstances!

Gracie Barra Downers Grove,

One the best seminars at GB Downers, followed by grand finale – end of the year belt grading ceremony and our annual group picture for the banner of 2017.









We would like to congratulate all our students who received their degrees and in special Joshua K and Brad R, on their Blue Belts and Mr. Salim Fakhoury who finally received his Brown Belt.

The celebrations continued throughout the evening at the Chama Gaucha Brazilian Steak house. The GB Downers Grove family dined together, shared great food, laughs and lots of fun. We marked the end of our 4th anniversary with a Secret Santa Brazilian Style, where our students and instructors exchanged presents.

We would like to thank all of our students, instructors, families and supporters who made this another successful year of victories and achievements.
