Clark Gracie Biography

Clark Gracie was born on the 17th of July, 1984 in Solano County, California – United States of America, but grew up in between San Francisco and Rio de Janeiro, possessing double nationality (American and Brazilian). He is the grandson of Carlos Gracie (senior) and son of Carley Gracie.

From a very young age, Clark Gracie was inspired by his father and family members to train and compete in Jiu Jitsu, the family tradition, and so he did. Always seeking for the best training possible to improve his game, Clark moved to San Diego and he sought out Rodrigo Medeiros, from the Carlson Gracie Revolution Team where he found some of the toughest training partners in the region which helped him raise his game. Clark Gracie soon became a big name in America’s Grappling circuit winning several important tournaments at a national and international level.

After a sequence of great results by Clark Gracie, he was awarded his well deserved black belt in May 2010 from the hands of his father Carley Gracie in a ceremony at the BJJ Revolution Team academy. Clark Gracie also has his own school franchise with academies in the northern area of San Diego – La Jolla (matrix), Tijuana, Kalamazoo MI, South France, and Chicago.
