Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a diverse and multifaceted martial art that everyone is capable of learning and enjoying its many benefits. It is highly effective for men, women, and children because it relies on leverage, timing, and proper technique to overcome larger and stronger opponents. It is a more practical alternative to traditional martial arts like Karate and Tae Kwon Do and, as a result, is growing rapidly in popularity. Our programs at Gracie Barra Franklin Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Self Defense reflect more than thirty years of Master Carlos Gracie’s teaching experience and have succeeded in improving the life quality, self-esteem, discipline, fitness and health of thousands of individuals around the world, as well as building some of the best BJJ fighters ever known! Gracie Barra schools are located worldwide with over 700 locations, and as a member you have free access to all of them!
