Gracie Barra Women Program

1. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a fun way to get fit.  Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is often likened to a game of human chess. If you don’t like to work out at a gym because you get bored, you’re not alone. Many of our students were tired of going to the gym, and they couldn’t find new songs or audio books to entertain them on the treadmill. They found Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to be the perfect workout because it requires a high level of concentration proportional to the amount of calories burned and pounds lost. What’s more, you’ll still learn to defend yourself. It’s a win-win situation.

 

Gracie Barra Family

2. Gracie Barra Family.  When you join Gracie Barra Centennial you are now part of a global organization of over 700 BJJ schools. When traveling you can train all over the world for no additional cost. And, you will be treated as a family member.

Carlos Gracie JR

3. Carlos Gracie Jr. In 1986, Carlos Gracie Jr. founded the first Gracie Barra school, in the city of Barra da Tijuca, Rio de Janeiro. From that one location he created the most expansive Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu organization there is, with offices in the USA, Brazil, Australia and Europe and around 700 hundred schools spanning the world. He created a structure that could protect the Gracie Barra banner while still offering support to instructors and school owners, to create career opportunities via certification programs and professional training. The aim of the schools is to help their communities by offering Jiu-Jitsu for everyone including you.

4. Unmatched Curriculum. The Gracie Barra curriculum ensures that students will be led through a proven progression of positions and techniques in order that they may learn jiu-jitsu in the fastest way possible. It allows instructors to cover all areas of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, leaving no gaps in the BJJ knowledge of the students. It is a complete jiu-jitsu that pays attention to the areas of:

1) Self defence (the reason why most people start learning a martial art)
2) Takedowns (90% of street fights hit the ground but 100% start standing!)
3) Ground – the strength of brazilian jiu-jitsu. 

Each week Professors and Coaches study and prepare to teach the ensuing classes under the well planned curriculum. With over 700 schools around the world we have the input and support of hundreds of blackbelts. Gracie Barra is always refining and improving our program. As a result, at Gracie Barra Centennial you get the best in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu teaching today and the teaching of the future. You can check out our programs HERE.
