Renzo Gracie is a name synonymous with success on and off the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu mats. His legacy is known worldwide and the reach his name has is close to legendary. This is why Aslan Movsumov out of Azerbaijan decided to open not only the first Renzo Gracie Academy but to make it one of the most premiere spaces in all of Azerbaijan.
His mission is to develop Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in Azerbaijan by trainining professional fighters to make them champions in the IBJJF and top tier Mixed Martial Arts leagues and bring attention to his home country.
The facility offers MMA, Muay Thai, Boxing, Kickboxing and of course Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu training - making it a one stop shop for those looking to become the best they can be. One thing that Aslan believes in is reinvesting in his facility to continually be able to provide the best equipment and services for his students.
This facility features FUJI 1.5" Smooth Mats, Custom Wall Pads, as well as Custom FUJI Team Gear with a total of 2800 square feet of mats.

Being part of the Gustavo Machado BJJ School Affiliation, Justin added the Sarasota, Florida Airport code which is SRQ thus deriving the very unique (and cool!) name.
The mission at Gustavo Machado Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Sarasota (GM BJJ-SRQ) is to enhance their students lives through the practice of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. The academy and staff are there to help students achieve their individual goals to include gaining confidence in self-defense techniques, increasing individual physical fitness, and/or preparing to compete in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu competitions at all levels.
One of the most important things that Justin focuses on is providing a positive environment in his academy at all times. "My name may be on the lease but this is my students academy. without them there is no academy. For me, the beauty of BJJ is what it does for a persons mind. Watching their transformation from the very first class. Constantly seeing people test their own limits and seek individual improvement with each session on the mat but willing to help each other be better martial artists and people. I'd say the environment we have is amazing" says Justin.
At GMBJJ Sarasota, they provide their students with the highest level of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu education in a positive, uplifting, and family environment.
