ROMULO BARRAL: FORGING HIS LEGACY
Gracie Barra is one of the largest and most successful Brazilian Jiu Jitsu associations in the world. The original school was established by Carlos Gracie Jr. in the 1980s and has produced some of the most highly regarded competitors to step on the mats in the last 30 years. Out of all the champions ever to win gold for Gracie Barra’s ‘Red Shield,’ few have been as successful as Romulo Barral.
The four-time IBJJF World Champion has been one of the most dominant champions of the past decade. Barral has won everything there is to win throughout his years as an elite competitor. Just to name a few: Barral has won the Brazilian Nationals, the European Open, Pans, Worlds, World-Nogi and ADCC as a Meio Pesao and as an open weight competitor. The affable Brazilian sat down with Jiu Jitsu Style after winning double gold in the 2016 European Open to share the highs and lows of his long and illustrious career. This is his story.
