Did you know that only one in three children are physically active every day? The struggles of a parent is not just to encourage your child to commit to physical fitness but to also make sure that they find something that constantly challenges them.
Functional movement benefits life in many ways. Whether you're looking to develop a world class athlete or boost ones self-defense an increase in agility & coordination will give you a strong foundation. In our classes you'll see our kids doing drills, throws, takedowns.
At our academy we focus on both self-defense & sport jiu-jitsu. Although being an active BJJ competitor is not a requirement many of our students love participating is local, regional and national level tournaments. Let's go team Gracie Barra Whittier!
Gracie Barra is a leader in the anti-bully movement. We fight bullying by building our students into leaders who are self-confident, threat aware & empowered with the Gracie Barra self-defense system.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu creates leaders who are humble, focused & self-aware. The amazing thing is these are merely byproducts of a committed jiu-jitsu practice.
Jiu-Jitsu for self-defense differs from other marital arts such as karate, tae kwon do or kickboxing because our focus is not on striking. We focus on neutralizing a threat with control over punches & kicks. This means no broken noses, no black eyes and no angry parents in a principles office.
