The Carley Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Network Europe (CGJJNE), formerly Gracie Concepts HQ, is one of the oldest, largest, and professional Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu associations in the world today.

The Network was founded by Master Franco Vacirca and Master Demetrio Vacirca back in 1995 in Zurich (Switzerland). The Network is today under the personal supervision of Grandmaster Carley Gracie (Red belt and son of Carlos Gracie), in order to maintain and pass on the art developed by Carlos Gracie and Hélio Gracie, the founders of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Master-mind behind the Gracie Way.
