Jujitsu classes, for both men and women, guide pupils through a cooperative and unique learning experience. Jujitsu leaders impart combat maneuvers while boosting self-confidence. Women’s-only classes improve self-defense skills as well as fitness. See the schedule here.
Master Carlos Gracie Jr. founded the Gracie Barra Association—which now encompasses more than 300 Brazilian jujitsu schools—to aid students in developing their understanding of the art beyond simple competition. His schools not only teach combative techniques but a four-pillared philosophy that instructors and students embrace: brotherhood, cooperation, discipline, and respect.
The instructors work with other trainers to expand the class repertoire beyond basic jujitsu, offering women's self-defense, kid's classes, and a black-belt leadership program. Each teacher brings a long history of competitive expertise in the subject they teach and bears a high-ranking belt in the art of jujitsu; for example, head instructor Marcio Feitosa holds a third-degree black belt. The facility consists of a series of open training areas, which rely upon big floor-to-ceiling windows and glow-in-the-dark teachers for light.
