    Was Ronoldo "Jacare" Souza ever part of Gracie Barra. Was he always part of Team Brasa? I ask this because I'm starting to hear people talk about it. And if you look at his clip, you'll see some of his fights with a Gracie Barra patch on his gi. Check it out and discuss please:

    till brown belt, but I don't think it was the same Gracie Barra that Roger was in.. From what I heard, it was a Gracie Barra academy but not the main academy, another part of brazil.. He then moved to master, then Brasa.. Brasa team is a bunch of guys from master.. I don't think there's master anymore.. the top guys of master are in Brasa and a few are in TT.. This is all I know.. if anyone's got info and clarification of what I said, feel free to correct me..

    The Brasa guys are basically Jacare Cavalcanti's students, no? Could also be that Ronaldo Jacare wore the patch of Carlihos since he's fighting in the Mundials, and Carlinhos is the president of CBJJF.
