GRACIE BARRA is for anyone who values discipline, wellness, martial art, respect, and is looking for a well balanced life-style.

We are sure you will find at our school an exciting and challenging place that will allow you to achieve your goals.
When asked, “What does Gracie Barra Mean to you?” All of our students would have the same answer: A family. That is nor fortuity. It is rather the result of life works of extraordinary individuals like count Mitsuyo Maeda, Carlos Gracie Sr., Rolls Gracie, Carlos Gracie Jr., and people like me who are dedicating their lives to the realization of their dreams and to the continuity of their legacies.
