JIU-JITSU FOR EVERYONE
“Jiu Jitsu for Everyone” is the core value which sets Gracie Barra apart from all other schools and is a major part of our global success.
“My life is dedicated to Jiu-Jitsu. My goal was simply to build a brotherhood to lead the expansion of Jiu-Jitsu while respecting the essence of our art. My students are an extension of my family. I want each one of them to achieve their personal best while helping spread Jiu-Jitsu. We must do that honoring the traditions and efforts of those who came before us.” – Carlos Gracie Jr.
At any of our classes, you will find a people of all backgrounds and ages training together in the spirit of Gracie Barra Jiu Jitsu.
From Nurses to Soldiers, Chefs to Students and anyone in between, the sense of trust and community which Jiu Jitsu builds is unique and why so many of our students keep coming back.
At Gracie Barra Street, we believe that Jiu Jitsu is more than a martial art; it is a tool through which everyone, no matter their age, background, fitness or ability, can use to help them improve in all areas of their lives. We strongly believe that in striving to learn Jiu Jitsu, everyone develops methods which can be applied in our everyday lives to help us achieve any goal.

Kids & Teens At Gracie Barra Street we recognise the importance that early experiences can have on an individual’s development. With this is mind, our kids classes are built around the foundations of cooperation, discipline and respect. The Gracie Barra Future Champions Program was created to provide children ages 3-17 with an environment that allows them to experience and understand core values like focus, discipline, persistence, cooperation and respect, and take them into their lives away from the mats.
Our Future Champions Program is split into three different groups for students of different ages:
