The nephew of the co-founder of BJJ, Carlos Gracie, Master Jean Jacques Machado is among one of the most admired and respected BJJ teachers in the world today. In 2011, he was awarded the rank of 7th degree black belt from Rickson Gracie in recognition to his significant contribution to the art and the impact he has had on it. Starting Jiu-jitsu at an early age he was a very successful competitor in both Brazil and the US.

With his headquarters in Los Angles, he heads a large organisation that is dedicated to the preservation, growth and advancement of Brazillian Jiu-Jitsu throughout the world.

We are proud to be part of the Jean Jacques BJJ family and our mission is to continue to promote his legacy here in Melbourne.
