The Jiu Jitsu we teach at Gracie Barra is different to a typical Martial Arts school. We would love to show you how in one of our Free Intro Classes.
You will be introduced to our history, philosophy and all the basic concepts within the sport. Through careful instruction on various basic positions and movements, you will have an opportunity to experience a Jiu Jitsu class first hand. We provide you the GB uniform for your trial class.

This is where everyone begins. The GB¹ Program teaches the basic principles of effective fighting to individuals like you. Its structure condenses an immense diversity of Jiu-Jitsu into core fundamental moves combined intelligently and safely to optimize your learning.
Jiu-Jitsu is for anyone, including you!
This class is for white belt 3 stripes and above. GB² Program classes are based on a defined class structure and curriculum that take a broad and open-minded approach, incorporating techniques from different grappling styles like wrestling, judo, sambo, and, of course, Gracie Barra Jiu-Jitsu.
It’s the little details that are vital. Little things make big things happen. – John Wooden
This class is for blue belts and above. It is in the GB³ Program that most students truly grasp what they’ve been told since being White Belts: Jiu-Jitsu is an endless journey of daily accomplishments that always leads to a new challenge. The same old arm-bars, triangle chokes, fireman carries, Kimuras, sweeps, guard passes and single leg take downs gain new meaning as their Jiu-Jitsu game flow is defined.
Gracie Barra students enrolled in the GB³ are role models at our schools. The responsibility of sharing GB techniques and training philosophy with newer students is taken seriously. They play a key role in maintaining a safe, friendly and progress-oriented environment at our school
There is no losing in Jiu-Jitsu. You either win or you learn. – Carlos Gracie Jr.
You must wear a GB rash-guard and shorts (or Gi pants) in this class. Class is the same as a GB² & GB³, and all white belts 3 stripes and above are welcome to participate. We follow IBJJF rules.
To excel in any endeavor, individuals need to have a strong set of values and a solid character that gives them perseverance to achieve his or her goals. The Gracie Barra Kids Program was created to provide children ages 3-15 with an environment that allows them to experience and understand core values like focus, discipline, persistence, cooperation and respect.
As a contact sport, Gracie Barra Jiu-Jitsu provides a very challenging yet safe and caring environment for a child to mature towards a real life champion. The outcome of continued childhood practice of GB Jiu-Jitsu goes far beyond the accomplishments on the mats. The discipline and excellence demanded by our instructors often carries over to the child’s behavior at home and at school.
Private lessons are available at Gracie Barra West Kensington. Please feel free to ask any of us about the available options. We are happy to report significant interest in having these personal lessons during off-peak hours at all of our dojos, running from earlier in the morning to later at night.
