A Chat with Gracie Barra Magnolia
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Some of our coaches are professional MMA fighters you have seen on TV. They are trained under the Gracie Barra Curriculum created by Master Carlos Gracie Jr. and have years of experience teaching, studying their arts, and competing at the highest level of BJJ, Muay Thai, and Professional MMA.
Is your location strictly for adults, or can kids participate as well?
Ages 4-99+ are welcome. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is call “the gentle art.” We are not beating each other senseless. Any age and shape can learn BJJ. Grand Master Helio Gracie actively trained into his late 80’s until the week before he passed away.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
BJJ changes lives, including our own. At the age of 46, I was overweight and had high blood pressure. After just 6 months, I had lost over 50 lbs and felt great! I love seeing the lives of others transformed.
What do you love most about your job?
Watching the kids grow up in front of us. They grow in their skill level, develop mental toughness, and self confidence. They actively help stop the bullying epidemic in America.
