Our School & Instructors

Tucked away down a small side lane in the town of Street, Gracie Barra Street is somewhat of a ‘hidden gem’! Once you’ve stepped inside you are greeted with a beautiful, first rate training facility which is the result of years of passion, hard work and dedication from Professor Rich.

Having started out as a storage unit, converted into a matted space for a small group of like minded martial art enthusiasts, the school has grown and transformed into the top class facility that it is today. Achieving ‘Premium School’ status in 2021, is testament to the hard, work, high expectations and level of commitment which has been poured into our academy. It has been a life long dream turned into reality and this is evident to anyone who sets foot inside and is instantly enveloped in the team ethos, passion and commitment of the strong team Rich has created.

Starting out as a solo venture, over the years, as the school has grown, Rich has built a strong team of equally passionate, dedicated and highly skilled coaches around him who now all contribute to making Gracie Barra Street what it is today. With an excellent reputation in the community and much further afield, it has become one of the most popular and successful martial arts schools in the area.

Of course, the students are a huge part of this success. We’d love to welcome you into our strong team and allow you to see for yourself what makes Gracie Barra Street so special!
