We are Gracie Barra

Gracie Barra is the one of the largest and most traditional Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Organizations in the World. Our schools, Instructors, and competitors are present not only in the UK or Brazil, but also in United States, South and Central Americas, Europe, Africa, Asia, and Oceania.

Founded in 1986, Gracie Barra grew to become renowned in the Martial Arts world. Unyielding commitment to excellence on teaching methods, cutting-edge programs, and focus on a balanced lifestyle for its members together with a bountiful Collection of Championship titles, GB is considered by many the power house of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

Each one of the over 300 Schools spread worldwide has the mission of teaching Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu as a means for Individual development going beyond the contest philosophy.

When asked, “What does Gracie Barra mean to you?” All of our students would have the same answer: A family. That is not 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 GB Instructors who are dedicating their lives to the realization of their dreams and to the continuity of their predecessor’s legacies.

GB WS1 in the heart of UK is a dream coming true.

A state of the art training Academy we are now consisted of hundreds of students at all ages, gender and backgrounds, building a diverse brotherhood committed to the life long journey of self mastery provided by Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

Our website is just a virtual extension of our school. Here you find tons of information about our programs, classes, art and us. If you are not yet a GB member, contact us to schedule your intro class.

You too can benefit from the GB BJJ lifestyle.
