Our programs are suitable for teens & adults ages 13 years and older regardless of gender, or athletic ability.
“Our Jiu-Jitsu is the triumph of intelligence over brute force!”
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is one of the fastest growing martial arts in the world. Whether it’s for wellness, fitness, self-defence, confidence or competition, we offer the best programs to suit your needs. Our adult programs are broken down into two different levels: Beginners and Advanced. Unlike most self-defense systems that rely heavily on strength, speed, and coordination, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu teaches you how to employ leverage, timing and proper technique so that anyone regardless of age or athletic ability can defeat a larger or stronger opponent.
The Gracie Barra Beginners Program (GB1) for teens & adults and teaches the most important concepts of effective real street self-defense to individuals like you. You need absolutely no experience to start this program.
In this program, you will learn the core techniques of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in a fun, safe, and cooperative environment. You can start the program at any time and participate in any class without previous experience and, since safety is our number one concern, there is no competitive sparring in this program.
What are the benefits of joining our Beginners Program?
While the Beginners Program focuses on the building blocks and basic principles of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, the intermediate (GB2) & advanced (GB3) programs are built on taking these core principles further, chaining techniques and drills that start shaping the students flow through the development of reflexes and reaction time.
After a few months in these programs, students typically experience a deeper involvement in BJJ’s philosophy, a stronger bond with training partners as well as more discipline and commitment to healthy habits that keep them in good shape while working towards Jiu-Jitsu mastery and eventually earning the coveted black belt.
