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 the individual. For that, we will fight to the end for what we believe is right. We seek to train body, mind and spirit through the highest level of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu instruction. We envision the art as a vehicle for individual development and the strengthening of the family spirit, going beyond the winning-losing or contest philosophy. – Master Carlos Gracie, Jr.
Gracie Barra has developed a unique set of classes to help introduce women to the art of Jiu-Jitsu. Join our community to learn the most effective self-defense techniques and improve your fitness routine in a safe, challenging environment.
Our women’s martial arts program is designed to teach women how to defend against any attacker – even those who are significantly larger in size. Our instructors will help you run drills to simulate realistic attack and escape situations you might encounter in the real world. With practice, you can leverage an attacker’s weight against them, allowing you to escape and get to safety unharmed. The self-defense techniques taught in this class use Jiu-Jitsu fundamentals that complement our selection of additional adult classes.
In addition to effective self-defense techniques, our women’s program is a great solution for anyone who wants to take their fitness routine to the next level. Gracie Barra’s Jiu-Jitsu techniques and versatile class schedules are a great way to keep your fitness routine from plateauing. Enjoy aerobic exercise and strength training that will help you achieve your fitness goals faster and more efficiently than classes offered in regular gyms.
