The Gracie Barra School of Encinitas was founded in Aug 2005. Our school is the result of the efforts of Prof. Nelson Monteiro, a 6th Degree Black Belt and Prof. Rafael Ramos, a 4th Degree Black Belt both under Master Carlos Gracie Jr.

We offer world-class level Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu instruction for individuals, families, and Law Enforcement officials of North San Diego County and is a reference for fitness, character development, self-defense, martial art, and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu training for the communities of Encinitas, Rancho Santa Fe, Solana Beach, Cardiff and La Costa.

The Gracie Barra Encinitas classes are aligned with the Gracie Barra Program Structure developed by Master Carlos Gracie Jr. to meet specific learning needs from people with different ages, gender and levels. Our clean, friendly, and progress oriented environment allows the students to have a challenging, inspirational, and warm learning and training experience that always make them feel like coming back.

Gracie Barra is for anyone who values discipline, wellness, martial art, respect, and is looking for a well balanced life-style. It doesn’t matter if you are a person with no training background that wants to loose weight or learn self-defense, a busy business man looking for a stress relieving activity, a parent searching for an something to complement the education of your kids, or a experienced martial artist aiming for the further development of your fighting skills, come to the school.

We are sure you will find at our school an exciting and challenging place that will allow you to achieve your goals.
