Great place for kids and adults of all ages seeking to gain mental strength and a physical education in applied Juijitsu.

Chad Braswell

Gracie Barra is a good place to learn the fundamental techniques of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu and train. Everyone here is friendly and quick to help regardless of athletic ability or age. They live up to their slogan of “Jiu-jitsu for everyone”, you can tell it is built into their culture. Try a free class and see for yourself.

Jamie Delacruz

I can’t recommend Gracie Barra enough! The staff is stellar. Not only do they teach self defense techniques and jiu jitsu, but they also teach skills that are integral in character development. They are consistent in their student expectations as well as their instruction methods.
