37 years ago the first Gracie Barra school in the world was established! Thanks to our founder, Master Carlos Gracie Jr., we now have over 1000 schools worldwide teaching Jiu-Jitsu for everyone! At Gracie Barra, we want to continue Master Carlos Gracie Jr.’s vision to share Jiu-Jitsu with as many people as possible, recognising it as more than a sport and as something that will help people to lead better lives, creating a better world through Jiu-Jitsu.
Our dedicated programs and curriculums have been developed over 37 years by Master Carlos Gracie Jr. and many experienced Gracie Barra black belts to keep you engaged and make Jiu-Jitsu accessible for everyone, regardless of age or gender! Everyone can benefit from training BJJ, whether it be stress relief after a long day at work, or helping kids to become more disciplined, resilient, and focused.
There’s no reason not to give it a go, at Gracie Barra we offer you a free, no obligation, trial class so that you get to experience Jiu-Jitsu for yourself! To celebrate our 37 year anniversary, we want to help you get started on your Jiu-Jitsu journey the best we can! During April, Gracie Barra will cover the cost of your first month of training when you sign up and buy your GB uniform!
We want to help you to reach your full potential, and become the best version of yourself through Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. All of our Instructors are fully qualified and committed to your learning! When you join Gracie Barra you are not just joining a class, but a community. It’s a fun and supportive social environment where you will make lifelong friends along the way! Our fantastic facilities are purpose built and cleaned to the highest standard. When you’re part of Gracie Barra, you are part of a family and are welcome to train in any of the other 1000 schools worldwide!
