Gracie Barra Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Classes

Our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes are a great opportunity for women to learn self-defense, and learn the skills and techniques needed to protect themselves in a situation where they might need it. As a martial art designed to allow the weaker to defeat the stronger, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a perfect fit for women who are interested in learning how to protect themselves. Who wouldn’t be, right?

Our instructors are dedicated to providing a safe, challenging and inclusive environment that allows students to become healthier, more mindful individuals. The skills learned on the mats are skills that will benefit them in their day-to-day life. Students can expect to feel more confident, safe and self-sufficient with each passing class.

Self-Defense and Empowerment

The Gracie Barra Women’s Program teaches students the skills needed to protect themselves. This class combines a comprehensive self-defense curriculum with emphasis on drills that simulate realistic attack and escape situations. The techniques are complemented by a strong fitness component that is second to none compared to classes offered in regular gyms.

Class sizes are small, which allows our instructors to provide more personalized instruction, and will allow students to get to know each other better. Our students are encouraged to support one another along their BJJ journeys, and contribute to the social and fun environment of Gracie Barra.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is rooted in strength, integrity and teamwork, and the environment in our facilities promotes this. Classes specially designed for women like Rape Prevention, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Conditioning and social “get togethers” are added benefits to the ordinary Gracie Barra activities and create a strong bond between the members of the “Gracie Barra Pink Team.”

“A black belt is a white belt who never quits.” -Carlos Gracie Jr.

Friendly and Welcoming Environment

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu can seem intimidating, but our classes are positive and friendly, and are open to everyone regardless of age, weight, or skill level. At your first class, it is asked that you arrive 15 minutes early to prepare and get in the right mindset to practice the art of BJJ. Our instructors will be waiting for you on the mats, some in pink-lined uniforms, to guide you in your self-defense journey.

If you have any questions at all, our instructors are committed to helping you. Small class sizes mean more one-on-one attention, and allow our instructors to better aid in improving your strengths and weaknesses. The instructor will run several basic drills and after a few classes you will catch up with the rest of the group. Once you master the basics you will really enjoy the intensity of a class based on effective self-defense techniques and real life scenarios.
