Amazing things are happening at Gracie Barra Whittier. Residents of Whittier and surrounding cities are getting in shape, losing weight and learning self-defense skills through the world’s best and proven martial arts training system; Gracie Barra Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

It’s important to note, not all martial arts studios are created equal. Our direct link to Master Carlos Gracie Sr. & Master Carlos Gracie Jr. means that when you take classes with us your own lineage is directly tied to the roots of this amazing martial art. Pretty cool; right?

It’s not just our lineage that separates us from “other” martial arts schools. We have proven teaching methods, world re-known martial arts programs & an instructors certification program that ensures you’re being taught be somebody with the Gracie Barra stamp of approval. Everything we do is directly overseen by Master Carlos Gracie Jr. himself. There’s a reason why martial artists all over the world rave about learning jiu-jitsu with Gracie Barra. In fact, we currently have over 600 schools worldwide that hang Gracie Barra banner. We call this “Representing the Red Shield”.

It’s important to know we offer classes to all experience, fitness & age levels. In fact, some of our Whittier students are as young as 4 years old and a couple of our students are well into their 60’s. This is possible because we don’t lump everybody into one class. We have a variety of different classes; each with its own focus. Some of our classes focus more on self-defense while other focus more on competition. Some of our classes are for kids, some for juniors other classes are for adults. No matter what your goal is, we have an amazing, engaging & fun class that will fit your schedule and expectations.

5 stars are not enough!  10 is more like it.

My 6-year son started taking classes here 1 month ago using the trial offer.

I’d been looking for a sport for him to participate in and am so glad I found Gracie Barra Jiu-jitsu.

WHY BRAZILIAN JIU-JITSU

We know there are lots of options when choosing a martial arts style to practice. When comparing BJJ to other self-defense systems like kung fu, tae kwon do, kali, kickboxing or karate there’s an absolute reason why one should choose to try Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and that’ because it wins. It literally wins. Did you know that in the early 90’s the Ultimate Fighting Championship set forth to prove just that? What martial arts style would reign supreme if pitted head to head against each other; regardless of weight, height or strength. When Gracie Family member Royce Gracie entered the competition vastly outsized by his competition he impressed the world when he single-handedly won fight after fight against bigger, stronger and more athletic opponents using only his Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu techniques. Today the world of martial arts has been changed and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a prominent martial art for self-defense, sport, fitness, and fun!
