So you’re interested in taking Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes. Like most people looking to start, I’m sure you’re already aware of how Gracie Barra Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a proven fighting system & how Jiu-Jitsu is an imposing martial art. I’m also pretty confident that you expect training in Jiu-Jitsu is going to challenge you in a positive and life changing way. There is so much more to Gracie Barra and the many benefits our members experience that I want to make sure you’re aware of. These benefits have been the driving factors of why Gracie Barra has taken the world of martial arts by storm and why you want to make sure you check our classes at our Whittier dojo.
Did you know that all Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu schools are not alike? With Gracie Barra, we’re the only Jiu-Jitsu team that has a direct tie to Master Carlos Gracie Sr., the creator of BJJ and his son Master Carlos Gracie Jr., the founder and leader of Gracie Barra. Members of our team are part of a network over 600 schools worldwide. There are many good reasons why so many people all over the globe are enjoying training with Gracie Barra.
At our academy in Whittier, our instructors are Gracie Barra certified through the ICP program. This ensures that you’re learning a world class curriculum from instructors who know how to effectively teach, the Gracie Barra Way.

The truth though is only a small percentage of our adult students are looking to be competitive athletes. Most people come to us to get together with a group of like-minded people who love all the other benefits that training with Gracie Barra Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu offers.
