Since 1996, the main academies compete head to head for each point in each division to add up to the overall count in the end.
The trophy for the adult male division is regarded as the most valuable, followed by the adult female division, juvenile and white belt divisions.
If you look into the results lists since 1996, you’ll see team results listed only from 2002 on, but GRACIEMAG counted the points for each team from 1996 to 2001* and will be able to make a full account of which team is the most successful in history.
In the adult male division, Alliance and Gracie Barra are without a doubt the two teams fighting for the top spot.
The team founded by Romero “Jacaré” Cavalcante and Fabio Gurgel has nine titles in the adult male division, winning in 1998, 1999 and from 2008 to 2014.
Gracie Barra comes up to a close second place with seven titles conquered in 1996, 2000, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2007.
The third team with most titles is Nova União, champions in 1997 and 2001.
Brasa has one title in the adult male division, in 2006.
In the female division, the competition is also fierce.
Once again, Alliance tops the list with seven titles conquered in 1999, 2000, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014.
UGF is second on the list with four titles won in 1998, 2002, 2003, 2004.
Gracie Humaitá also has a great record, having conquered three titles in 2007, 2008, 2009.
Gracie Barra ties with Gracie Humaitá, with three titles conquered in 2001, 2005, 2006.
Brigadeiro JJ also has one title, in 1998 (tied with UGF).
So, if you add the results from the male and female divisions, you have the following overall results for teams:
1. Alliance – 16 titles
2. Gracie Barra – 10 titles
3. UGF – 4 titles
4. Gracie Humaitá – 3 titles
