Welcome to Gracie Barra
At the heart of the Gracie Barra Family’s extraordinary success over the years is our strong philosophy and mission as a group, a foundation which our masters laid many years ago, but is constantly being reinforced by the great people that make our community. Jiu-Jitsu is a beautiful art, and we have a vision of how it should be taught as a means for individual development going beyond the competitive realm. To achieve this vision, we must remember to come together as a family, always putting the team in front of individual. For that, we will fight to the end for what we believe is right.
What is Gracie Barra Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu?
The benefits of Gracie Barra Brazilian Jiu Jitsu are far reaching and will touch every aspect of your life. At Gracie Barra, our students become leaders. Gracie Barra nurtures your independent thinking, supports your fighting spirit, and helps you achieve your personal BJJ goals.
Through GB BJJ, you will begin to understand yourself, on and off the mats, in ways you never imagined. You will test your limits and become the best you can be. GB respects that each student has their own goals and we support you in reaching them. The more you train, the better you will become and the more completely you will reach your true potential in life.
GB BJJ is for anyone who wants to learn how to defend him or herself in combat. What most people don’t know, is that GB BJJ will also allow you to apply those same principles to fighting the daily battles of life, like weight loss, stress, relationship issues, and self-confidence. You will learn how to think through problems more constructively than before, on and off the mats.
Benefit from the 100 year legacy of training and competition.
Training in any of the martial arts requires increasing discipline, dedication and hard work. The practitioner needs every class to count, every technique to be the right technique, and the benefits of a closely knit community of support and understanding to succeed. The Gracie Barra community has achieved much in the ring and octagon, but the most stunning achievement is your gift if you are ready to receive it. The way is preserved in this lineage, handed down from generation to generation and we welcome you to receive it.
Some people have a misconception about training
The common misconception about grappling, kickboxing, and MMA training is that its for tough guys and fighters. However this is completely false. Most of our students have jobs, school and families and don’t want to get injured. Our mission is to make sure everyone can learn and train with minimal harm to them and their training partners. Safety is our number one priority! We are also serious about having an ego-free gym. People are always surprised by the amount of support they receive from other members from the first day they arrive. We also organize many different activities like BBQs at the park, holiday parties, and hiking trips to allow our members to get to know each other even better.
