People often ask me "Why Gracie Jiu-Jitsu?"
Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is the most effective self defense art and sport in the
history of the world. It is an art that gives a person of smaller stature
the greatest chance to defeat a larger stronger opponent.
In addition when taught and practiced as the founder intended, jiu-jitsu is
available to a great cross section of society in a safe and healthy
environment and is easily the safest of all full resistance martial arts and
in many ways the least violent and traumatic.
Jiu-Jitsu also offers the practitioner tremendous opportunities for
psychological and spiritual growth. We practice an art where persistence and
thoughtfulness regularly prevail over natural ability and aggression, in an
environment where humility, perseverance, integrity and empathy can
This is the brilliance, vision and magic of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu.

Message from Master Carlos Gracie Jr
"At the heart of the Gracie Barra Family's extraordinary success over the years is our strong philosophy and mission as a group, a foundation which our masters laid many years ago, but is constantly being reinforced by the great people that make our community. Jiu-Jitsu is a beautiful art, and we have a vision of how it should be taught as a means for individual development going beyond the competitive realm. To achieve this vision, we must remember to come together as a family, always putting the team in front of individual. For that, we will fight to the end for what we believe is right".
