Keeping the Legacy Alive

This half hour class, held Twice a week, is designed for those children who are only 3 or 4 and/or not 100% ready to jump into the regular classes just yet. We work on the class structure, many drills to improve their still developing hand-eye coordination, and always get in the foundation of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. This class is the perfect place to start, or as a nice half hour class for our already enrolled students to get a little bit more reinforcement with their skills.


Our Little Champs Program was created to provide children ages 4-6 with an environment that allows them to experience and understand core values like focus, discipline, persistence, cooperation and respect. In this 50 minute class we introduce fundamental jiu jitsu heavily focused on self defense. While also dedicating class time to their physical development as well. In this class we  “hide” much of the physical movements into more kid friendly terms and games.


The GBK Juniors Program was created to provide children ages 7 to 11. This class introduces self defense jiu jitsu as well as some sport and competition techniques. Children at this age are introduced to basic submissions and we take a more direct approach to their skills development.   

GB 1

Jiu Jitsu for Everyone

Students experience results that go beyond gains in strength, flexibility, fitness or self-defense skills. By remaining truthful to the lessons learned in practice and applying them off the mats, Gracie Barra students experience an overall improvement on their focus, energy and general well-being.

The GB 1 Program teaches these basic principles of effective fighting to individuals like you. Its structure condenses an immense diversity of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu into core fundamental moves combined intelligently and safely to optimize your learning.

GB 2

Organized like a team, fighting like a family

While the GB 1 Program focuses on the building blocks and basic principles of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, the GB 2 Program is built on high-level techniques and drills that start shaping the students game through the development of reflexes, speed, reaction time, as well as transitions between one technique and another.
