10 Reasons to Join

  1. An Exciting and Entertaining Workout: Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is likened to a game of human chess. If you don’t like to exercise because you get bored you are not alone. Many of our students were tired of going to the gym and couldn’t find new songs or audio books to entertain them on the treadmill. They found BJJ to be the perfect workout because it requires a high level of concentration proportional to the amount of calories burned and pounds lost. On top of all that, you will still learn how to protect your self. Very nice, right?

  2. The GB People:  They 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.

  3. The Gracie Barra Structure: This is the trademark of all Gracie Barra Premium Schools. Classes start on time and follow a common curriculum and structure. As a student you know up front what is expected from 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 dedicated instructors blend perfectly to facilitate your progress.

  4. GB is Much More than Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu: When you join Gracie Barra, you are not just getting classes. You become part of a community united by the ideals of the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu lifestyle. Special classes and side events coupled with ordinary classes create a fun and exciting calendar of activities that can change your life forever!

  5. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is More than Fighting: 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. If applied to your life off the mats, these principles can bring more balance to your routine and help you to reach your potential.

  6. You Can Train All Over the World: There are over 300 Gracie Barra schools worldwide. When you join a Gracie Barra school you can train at any location while you travel.

  7. GB is a Family for the Whole Family: One of the most unique things about our school is our family-orientation. Gracie Barra is proud to be a powerhouse of the best Jiu-Jitsu champions worldwide while still maintaining a training environment that is welcoming for the whole family: husband, wife and kids.  At Gracie Barra many families find great activities where they can spend quality time together.

  8. Cleanliness is a Top Priority: Our school follows high cleaning standards set by Gracie Barra. Our facility is cleaned daily by our staff and all GB uniforms are washed regularly. Our mats are cleaned on a daily basis with a specially designed cleanser that neutralizes bacteria, fungus and odor without compromising the integrity of the equipment.

  9. Safety is Number One: Student safety is our instructors’ primary practice goal. Training sessions are supervised at all times and we have CPR-trained personnel at the school during all classes.

  10. Legacy--an Experience: Our school is supervised by a certified Gracie Barra Black Belt instructor who is also responsible for teaching classes. Our team of instructors was trained in the teaching philosophy and methods of Carlos Gracie Jr., the founder of Gracie Barra. Over 30 years of teaching experience are at your service so don’t worry; you and your family are in great hands.
