Brown belt Roger Gracie mounts Demian Maia to win in 2002, one of the exciting outcomes common to the BR Team Nationals. In the photo by Gustavo Aragão GB stars in the crowd, and Osvaldo Paqueta in the background.

For fans of Jiu-Jitsu’s different coats of arms, and fans of numbers, the Brazilian Team Nationals is a plateful.

Up until 2010, fourteen editions have gone by of the tournament rewarding the best teams at each belt group.

In the elite division, the brown/black belt men, Gracie Barra counts ten titles until 2010. In second place, Alliance has six.

In third, Nova União won four times, and the newly-formed GFTeam is the surprise with its fourth place, with two titles, ahead of more traditional teams, like Carlson Gracie, for example.

Come competition time, the brown/black division is split into lightweight and heavyweight categories – under and over 73 kg. Among the lightweights, another win for Carlos Gracie Jr’s academy: five wins in all, one being from Gracie Barra-BH, his student Vinícius Draculino’s gym. Nova União, which customarily enters with A and B teams, too, is hot on their heels, with four triumphs. In third place is GFTeam, with two.

Among the heavyweights, the battle is between GB and Alliance. The group now led by Marcinho Feitosa boasts five wins, one of the on GB-BH’s tab. The Alliance eagle, too, counts five conquests, curiously winning the first tournament, in 1995, and the last, in 2009.

Third place at heavy is tied across the board between Carlson, Master, Brasa, Gracie Floripa and Ryan/Gordo, with one triumph apiece.

The next Brazilian Team Nationals is coming up September 25. Who’s going to win and fatten up the statistics? Comment below and help GRACIEMAG.com to know who the up-and-comers, revelations and favorites are.
