Gracie Barra America, located in Irvine, California, is well known worldwide for its commitment to teaching high-level Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. At our school, you will receive hands on attention from our world class Professors and Instructors who will monitor your progress in a clean, safe, and family-friendly environment. Our Professors and Instructors were trained under the Gracie Barra Curriculum created by Master Carlos Gracie Jr. and their work is supervised by our Head Instructor and 3rd degree black belt Professor Marcio Feitosa.
We are also very fortunate to have Master Carlos Gracie Jr. himself training and teaching at our school. Master Carlos spends half of his year here training himself and teaching classes and Gracie Barra members from all around the globe are welcome to come by our School to have a unique opportunity to learn directly from a teacher who has molded and formed many of the greatest athletes, professors and instructors in our art.
Our school is for everyone and anyone who is looking to get in shape, learn self-defense, and improve the overall quality of their lives. In addition our family-oriented environment is a perfect place to teach your children to feel safe everyday not only when they are at school or outside playing, but also in developing their self-confidence and discipline.
We strive to touch as many lives as we can with our art and anyone who is interested in learning more about the great benefits that Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu can bring to his life, is more than welcome here.
