Want to Get Fit

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is often likened to a game of human chess. If you don?t like to work out at a gym because you get bored, you’re not alone. Many of our students were tired of going to the gym, and they couldn?t find new songs or audio books to entertain them on the treadmill. They found BJJ to be the perfect workout because it requires a high level of concentration proportional to the amount of calories burned and pounds lost. What’s more, you’ll still learn to defend yourself. It?s a win-win situation.

GB is a Family for the Family

One of the most unique characteristics about our schools is our family-orientated approach. Gracie Barra is proud to be a powerhouse with the most stalwart champions of world Jiu-Jitsu while still maintaining a training environment that is welcoming for the whole family: husband, wife and kids. At Gracie Barra, families find marvelous activities through which to spend quality time together.

Over 30 Years experience assure a link to BJJ roots

A certified Gracie Barra black belt instructor also responsible for teaching class supervises each school. Our team of instructors was trained in the teaching philosophy and methods of Master Carlos Gracie Jr., the founder of Gracie Barra. A legacy of over 30 years of teaching experience is at your service, so you don?t have to worry: you and your family are in great hands.

Jiu Jitsu would be useful in real-life situations

You don’t come to class just to learn how to fight. You also work hard toward mastering the underlying principles that allow you to succeed on the mats. When applied to your life off the mats, these principles can bring more balance to your routine and help you reach your true potential.

Structure is for success ... Simple

The class structure is the trademark of all Gracie Barra Premium Schools. Classes start on time and adhere to a standardized curriculum and class structure. As a student, you know up front what is expected of you and have a clear understanding of what to expect from your instructors and training partners. The consistency of this structure combined with the creativity and innovation of our devoted instructors blend perfectly to facilitate your progress.
