Gracie Barra Schools Worldwide Align Jiu-Jitsu Classes
At Gracie Barra we are united to teach Jiu-Jitsu as a means of developing an individual. We live each day according to the lifestyle of Jiu-Jitsu, with attitudes that reflect the values learned through studies on the mat. The gentle art is based on the fundamental principles of balance, control, efficiency, effectiveness, adaptation, mutual support and the action of levers. During practice, students are constantly making use of these principles to perform a desired goal, whether a fall or a choke, to name a few.
The progress of a person in Jiu-Jitsu is a consequence of the dominance of these principles and it’s natural that the student begins to draw parallels between the challenges faced on the mats and the challenges faced in their daily lives. When this happens, the student begins to experience the largest and most extraordinary benefit of studying Jiu-Jitsu: an extreme improvement in their lifestyle.
Jiu-Jitsu for Everyone!
