Why Choose Gracie Barra Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Over Other Martial Arts?

There are various martial arts disciplines out there, such as Karate, Taekwondo, Aikido and so on. But, Jiu-Jitsu stands out as the ultimate option for those seeking a worthwhile and rewarding martial arts experience. Here’s why:

  • Practicality and effectiveness:

    Unlike other martial arts emphasising strikes and acrobatics, Jiu-Jitsu prioritises real-world self-defence techniques. Mastering Jiu-Jitsu grants you the power to subdue and control opponents, regardless of their size or strength. It’s a martial art crafted for real-life scenarios.

  • Full-Body Fitness and Conditioning:

    Jiu-Jitsu training provides a full-body workout, improving cardiovascular endurance, functional strength, and flexibility. We do this through dynamic movements, grappling drills and sparring.

  • Intellectual Engagement:

    Jiu-Jitsu is a game of strategic thinking and problem-solving, often compared to human chess. It encourages adaptability, creativity, and quick decision-making. Outsmart your opponents with well-executed techniques and experience the intellectual stimulation it offers.

Our Programs:

At Gracie Barra, our structured curriculum is designed to help you succeed during your training. We have three levels of classes that cater to varying degrees of skill and knowledge. They are as follows:

GB1 – This is great for beginners and is an introduction to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. In GB1, you will learn the fundamentals and concepts of BJJ.

GB2 – Advance your Jiu-Jitsu knowledge in these classes. Take your training beyond the basics and start to develop the principles you need to succeed.

GB3 – This programme is designed to help students on the road to Black Belt excellence. Apply what you learn during training to everyday life.
