Whats the difference between these two systems? Did the Machado織s train in the Gracie system at one time? I seem to remember an article saying they were cousins,true? I織ve also read that of the 2 camps. The Machado織s are the more amiable,true? If so how does that play out in the training. Comparing one to the other? Just questions of curiousity. No offense intended to anyone,o.k.! :eek:

I believe that that's the case--that the Machados are cousins of the Gracies and that the Machados studied Gracie Jiu-Jitsu.
 
No, it is not a separate system, it is brazilian jiu-jitsu. For marketing purposes they use their name instead of the Gracies, of course. The "head" would be the Machado brothers as a collective whole.
