Three new Gracie Barra schools are moving to the Nashville, Tennessee area! The locations of the premium GB schools are: Brentwood, Cool Springs, and Green Hills. They are set to open this summer by none other than Professor Marcelo Ribeiro and Professor Marcio Feitosa.

Classes offered to the public will include adult, children’s, and women’s Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu programs. Ribeiro says, “The kid’s program will be huge here in Nashville. There are a lot of families here and we are really excited to be able to bring them such an amazing Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu program.”

Ribeiro, who has more than just his upcoming three schools to celebrate, is also receiving his third stripe on his black belt from Master Carlos Gracie Jr. in a couple of weeks.

Ribeiro and Feitosa together are powerhouses in the Gracie Barra school system. Not only do they personally have extensive years of experience in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu itself but together they have created and built numerous successful GB schools around the United States, including in Florida, Texas, Pennsylvania, and now Tennessee.

In North Austin, Texas, for example, Ribeiro and Feitosa were able to build that GB school to 180 members in just under seven months. For more information about GB North Austin, contact

“We are now really looking forward to bringing our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu experience and expertise to the Nashville area,” Ribeiro says. For the Nashville, Tennessee area Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu academy closest to you, please contact:
