Gracie Barra Vernon and Salmon Arm
Brazilian jujitsu’s main tenet, “minimum effort for maximum efficiency,” could evoke laziness; however, one look at jujitsu practitioners sparring with each other and executing signature takedowns allays that misconception. The self-defense style stresses ground fighting, which can neutralize an opponent’s size advantage for a more interesting physical match. The self-defense style stresses ground fighting, which is a technique that can help neutralize size or strength advantages, evening the odds in a match, and allowing a modern day David to defeat a Goliath without the use of a sling. But at Gracie Barra, the primary emphasis is a philosophical one.
The jujitsu school values perseverance and discipline. It helps prepare students to succeed not only in physical combat but also in life, helping them to gain focus, increase fitness, and perhaps meet new friends. Gracie Barra's four black belt instructors complement their jujitsu instruction with alternate fitness styles, such as kickboxing and mixed martial arts. Each location also boasts expansive views: the Salmon Arm branch is situated riverside, and the Vernon branch’s huge bay doors showcase views of the mountains.
