Gracie Sydney Brazilian Jiu Jitsu’s (BJJ) big winter event was this past weekend and was fantastic with members from the whole association present! Students tested for their Blue, Purple and Brown belts, got to roll together, and exchange ideas. Then we enjoyed some great Brazilian BBQ beside Maroubra Surf Life Saving Club afterwards. Thank you all who came, participated, and supported. To those that graded, congratulations!
