Question about Gracie Humaita and Gracie Barra?

So the Gracie Humaita is the Gracie jiu jitsu and the Gracie Barra is the Brazillian jiu jitsu. The Brazillian jiu jitsu doesn't claim Gracie but then why is it called the Gracie Barra? A part of the Gracie family split from the other and stuck with Brazillian jiu jitsu to define themselves seperate from the Gracie jiu jitsu. But if they claim Brazillian jiu jitsu why do they call it the Gracie Barra

Barra and Humaita are 2 neighborhoods from Rio de Janeiro, they are both runned by gracies, with the same technique tought by the family. Gracie Barra was founded after Carlos Gracie moved to that neighborhood.

After the years passed, Gracie Barra TEAM started to be more competition oriented.

They are pretty much the same technique-wise.

There are 50+ Gracie Family members involved with JJ worldwide, different techniques and methods of teching will eventually make one differ the other but IMO we didn't get to that point yet (besides NO GI training ofcourse).

Just know that when u refer to Gracie Barra, you are talking about a Team, not different from Nove União for example.

They all teach BJJ and all the BJJ came from the Gracies.

I don't know who the **** it is, I just hope there isn't someone out there that blatantly clueless. I almost want it to be a troll. Even though, if he does turn out to be a troll he caught me bad. He's like some kind of ninja troll, I never get sucked in by the guys who just come on and star a thread saying "GSP is gay and Silva blows." But this guy has got me annoyed beyond words.
