Instructor Certification Seminar

We are very proud to announce the return of our Grand Master Carley Gracie to our school Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Team Berlin. In less than a month, Grande Mestre Carley Gracie (red belt, 9th degree) will impart his knowledge for two days, assisted of course by Professor Franco Vacirca (black belt 6th degree), Headmaster of VB – Carley Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Network Europe.


Are you a BJJ instructor who would like to teach authentic Gracie Jiu-Jitsu in the future? Or was your Gracie/Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu belt ranking a long time ago?

It is a unique chance to get an evaluation from a duo of experts. If you participate in both days, you can profit from it and get evaluated by GM Carley Gracie and Prof. Franco Vacirca together. They will also be happy to give you some tips on how to make your next graduation – or the next step as a trainer/instructor.

Here are the seminar details:

Seminar times:
Saturday, September 24, 12:00-15:00
Sunday, September 25, 12:00-15:00

Cost: 1 day – EUR 75,00 / 2 days – EUR 100,00

Here is some important information about the seminar in Berlin, whether you are a visitor, member, or instructor / representative of VB – CGJJ Network Europe:


  • Filming and photography are not allowed during the seminar. Those who need to make phone calls during the seminar will do so outside and not in the seminar zone.
  • At the end of the seminar, we will take a group photo that will be gladly forwarded to all participants and will also be visible in the social medias, therefore children (without parental permission) are not allowed to be in the photo.
  • Those who do not want to appear in the social medias of us (Vacirca Brothers, One Dojo Zurich, Carley Gracie, Carley Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Network Europe, Franco Vacirca, Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Team Berlin, and representatives of us) should always stand behind the person with the camera and thus avoid appearing in the photo.
  • Afterwards you will take a souvenir photo together with the instructor duo (GM Carley and Prof. Franco), but it is not possible to take a photo alone with only one of the two teachers. Unfortunately, in the past this was misused too often.
  • Each participant takes part in the seminar at his/her own risk. Each participant must be sufficiently insured and acknowledges that we disclaim all liability. Each participant must be at least 18 years old or older. Minors must have the written permission of their legal guardian/parent at the time of registration.

Visitors and parents

Jiu-Jitsu-kas and martial artists from other schools and organizations are welcome. But our rules apply! We take as an organization and instructors the right to remove someone ANYTIME from the training / seminar to guarantee the safety and implementation. Persons without respect will not be tolerated by us and will be excluded immediately. People we must exclude from the training, even if the seminar has already started, will not be refunded the seminar fee.

We would also like to point out that numerous police officers are present at this seminar, so we all feel a little safer! In over 30 years of seminar experience, we have never had any problems of any kind and we want it to stay that way. We also ask the parents to pick up their protégés after the training or to organize their return journey so that no one is left behind and we must take care of it.


We are looking forward to meeting you all soon at the Carley Gracie Seminar in Berlin. Guaranteed again a SUPER Gracie Jiu-Jitsu experience for all!

Keep It Real!
-GJJ Team Zurich/Berlin
