    Does anyone know? Not a network like Gracie Barra or something but just the school with the most medalists, most world champs, or most team wins?

    Are you taking in the US? or period? It's more than likely going to be a Rio based team hands down if you're talking world-wide and historically.

    Fabio Gurgel's Sao Paolo Alliance school has to be at the top in the modern era for medals and world champs earned while training at the school.

    I suspect that the Arrebencatao team may hold the all time record, but they weren't around in the modern era with the tournaments we know today.

    the Atlanta school has produced zero black belt champions so if you're gonna go with one Alliance school, it'll be the one in Sao Paulo

    Maybe BTT since they all trained together. They earned quite a few medals for their short period of having serious competitors. Im not sure if they qualify though as they all came from different Carlson schools.

    That depends heavily on which medals you count. There are 2-3 dozen folks at Alliance HQ with medals at various belt levels from IBJJF major tournaments. If you're talking about Mundials and black belt only, then it almost has to be Alliance Sao Paulo. Fabio Gurgel is the man.

    back in the day, Team Carlson Gracie definitely was one of the most feared.
