Jiu-Jitsu for Everyone


My son had some lessons from other schools but so far his classes here at Gracie Barra had been the best. Aside from the actual Jiujitsu lessons, the instructors instill good values in them and teaches them discipline that they can bring home. My son is getting stronger and has found something he is really invested in. The place is clean and has a little area for toddlers to play at. They also now installed a water station for the kids so we don’t have to bring our own water coz we sometimes forget. It’s easy to find parking as well since there’s a big lot just behind it.

I joined Gracie Barra Glendale about 1 year ago looking for a school I could call home and where I could train hard but safely and as a woman not be faced with barricades to progress as are unfortunately often the case in martial arts schools. Professor Robert and his coaches offer a class act. The physical location , ample parking , well lit and safe area  as well as spotless facilities make this academy a gem in our beautiful city.
Professor Robert is always on the premises and teaching all of the adult classes, while his very highly trained coaches tend to the younger kids classes. His meticulous attention to details and careful monitoring of training partners gives us peace of mind that someone is watching and caring enough to make sure each student has opportunities to grow at their own pace and on their own path to practice  and train as hard or as easy as they wish but still meeting the requirements of our curriculum.
Drop buy and see for yourself , better yet come borrow a clean GI and try a free class…you will understand!

Gracie Barra Glendale is incredible.

I started almost a year a ago because a friend of mine recommended it and have been enjoying it ever since.

Black Belt Professor Robert Hill teaches every class, so you know you are getting really great instruction.  If you are interested in Jiu Jitsu but not sure where to start then this is the place for you.  If you have taken Jiu Jitsu before you’ll fit right in and love it.

The atmosphere is great for all levels of interest; fitness, sport, self defense.  Additionally, this school has a really cool vibe and everyone is helpful and friendly.  Even on the largest days there is plenty of mat space; two floors!

Gracie Barra Glendale also offers Boxing class (Saturdays), and at times competition and at conditioning classes as well.

Overall my experience there has been a 10/10.
