Ralph Gracie opened his first bay area academy in 1994 and established himself as an early pioneer of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in the San Francisco Bay Area and in California.
The Dublin Academy has been open for over 10 years along with flagship academies in Berkeley and San Francisco. Under the leadership of 5th degree black belt Eduardo Fraga and 2nd degree black belt Rhalan Gracie, the Dublin academy has developed a culture that balances teamwork, competition and a family-friendly environment. Our goal is to always help every student acheive their best and reach their full potential, be it competition, fitness, or self defence.
Eduardo trained and taught in Sao Paulo under the legendary fighter Ryan Gracie (Ralph’s Brother), with extensive experienced competing in both BJJ and MMA. His individual BJJ accomplishments include placing 10x Pan Americans (Black Belt), 7x Sao Paulo State Champion. In 2008 Eduardo immigrated with his family to the US and joined the Ralph Gracie team.
