Gracie Barra Canton was founded in March 2015. Our school is the result of the efforts of Professor Derrick Clark, a black belt who trained under Alexandre Ferreira Santos (Dange).
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art and sport that evolved from the grappling style of judo. It is frequently used in MMA instruction and training because it focuses on leverage and technique which can enable a smaller, weaker fighter to successfully combat a larger and stronger opponent. The study of martial arts and in particular Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu offers great exercise and long term health benefits.
