About Us

Welcome to Ocean Grown Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, a private academy exclusively dedicated to the teachings of Rey Diogo under the Carlson Gracie Team.

Membership is exclusive and by appointment only.


We do not accept just anybody into our gym to train.


You have to contact us and interview before you are invited to come train.


Our student's safety is our #1 priority!


Community & Referrals

We are more than just a gym;  we are a vibrant community. Most of our students come through personal recommendations, creating a trustful and family-oriented atmosphere. Each roll on the mat strengthens not just our skills, but the bonds we share as a team.

Seeking Passionate Practitioners

We welcome new team members who share our love for Jiu-Jitsu, commitment to each other's well-being, and dedication to the art in its purest form. Whether you're experienced or new to the mats, join a community that supports and grows together.

Focused on the Art

Competition is a part of Jiu-Jitsu, but it's not our sole focus. We encourage and support students who choose to compete, recognizing it as a valuable experience. However, our philosophy is about embracing the essence of Jiu-Jitsu, offering a supportive environment for all, regardless of competitive aspirations.

Experience Our Training Firsthand

Once you interview with us you can come in for a free trial week. Meet our instructors, interact with our members, and feel the spirit of our lineage in action.

Join Our Carlson Gracie Lineage Family

Immerse yourself in the legacy of Carlson Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, handed down through Rey Diogo. Our instructors, all black belts under Rey Diogo, are dedicated to teaching techniques and principles deeply rooted in this rich tradition.

Selective for Safety

Your safety is our top priority. We carefully select our members through an interview process, ensuring a safe, positive training environment for all.  Our focus extends beyond competition: we encourage and support those who choose to compete, recognizing it as a valuable experience, but our primary philosophy is embracing the essence of Jiu-Jitsu.
