BJJ training

1. GB Jiu-Jitsu is a truly exciting way to get fit

Jiu-Jitsu is often compared to a game of human chess. If you don’t like to work out at a gym because you get bored, you’re not alone. Many of our students were tired of going to the gym and found in Jiu-Jitsu a perfect workout because it brings motivation and requires a high level of concentration proportional to the amount of calories burned and fat loss. In addition, Jiu-Jitsu improves physical conditioning, cardiovascular and respiratory capacity. You will also learn to defend yourself, as well as increasing your motor coordination and reflexes. It’s a win-win situation.

2. Train the mind

By being a high-intensity exercise, Jiu-Jitsu further promotes the release of hormones such as dopamine, endorphins and serotonin that increase the feeling of well-being, happiness, disposition and self-esteem. It is a natural helper to stress, anxiety and depression, as well as helping with the memory, learning process and sleep. 

3. GB people are committed to your progress in learning

The folks at GB make our school what it is, and you too will soon be one of us. You’ll be impressed by how committed each and every team member is to your learning. The instructors, staff and other students make our environment friendly yet demanding and challenging, which stimulates all of us to achieve our best.

4. The renowned Gracie Barra structure makes your journey in learning smooth and enjoyable

The class structure is the trademark of all Gracie Barra Schools. Classes start on time and adhere to a standardized curriculum and class structure. As a student, you know up front what is expected of you and have a clear understanding of what to expect from your instructors and training partners. The consistency of this structure combined with the creativity and innovation of our devoted instructors blend perfectly to facilitate your progress.

5. GB Community will change your life forever

When you join Gracie Barra, you are not just getting classes. You become part of a community united by the ideals of the Jiu-Jitsu lifestyle. Special classes and side events coupled with ordinary classes create a fun and exciting calendar of activities that you and your family will love to take part in.

6. Gracie Barra Philosophy will be useful outside the mats, in real-life situations

You don’t come to class just to learn how to fight. You also work hard toward mastering the underlying principles that allow you to succeed on the mats, such as discipline, respect, resilience, persistence, know how to think under pressure, the ability to overcome yourself and humility. When applied to your life off the mats, these principles can bring more balance to your routine and help you reach your true potential.

7. GB is an Environment for the Whole Family

One of the most unique characteristics about our schools is our family-orientated approach. Gracie Barra is proud to be a powerhouse with the most stalwart champions of Jiu-Jitsu in the world while still maintaining a training environment that is welcoming for the whole family: men, women, and children.
