The Gracie Barra Program Structure defines three main stages of development for students: the GB¹ Program – Jiu-Jitsu Fundamentals, the GB² Program – Advanced Jiu-Jitsu, and the GB³ Program – Expert Jiu-Jitsu. These stages indicate different maturity levels and students upgrade from one to the other in their own natural progression.

Our programs are designed with each student’s personal achievement in mind. Your personal goals, such as fitness or self-defence, will be taken into account when you sign up. Our self-defence classes for men and women are a great way to practice real-world techniques while strengthening your mind and body.

What are the principal qualities of a great fighter? What does it take for an ordinary person to realise to his or her own potential?

While the GB¹ Program focuses on the building blocks and basic principles of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, the GB² Program is built on high-level techniques and drills that start shaping the students game flow through the development of reflexes, speed and reaction time as well as transitions between one technique and another. You will find the GB² Classes perfect for taking your Jiu-Jitsu to the next level. 

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 most importantly, Gracie Barra Jiu-Jitsu.

Can someone master Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu? Is there an end to the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu journey?

The Gracie Barra Black Belt Program is the last stage in GB’s adult program structure. While it does represent the student’s arrival at the ultimate level of training in our school, it also represents a new beginning.

The goal of this program is to further develop the student’s Jiu-Jitsu game flow by exposing him or her to cutting edge Jiu-Jitsu techniques and their variations. The program’s dynamic curriculum and classes, followed by hour-long live training sessions, build a challenging yet safe environment for students to progress from their blue to black belts.

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. 

There is no losing in Jiu-Jitsu. You either win or you learn.

We recommend you arrive 15 minutes before your class, as we always start on time. When lining up to begin training, you’ll notice the instructor has a precise plan for the class. This is standard. The class routine is always similar so you know exactly what to expect during each part of training; the techniques change, though! You will learn over 100 technique combinations over four months during the Fundamental Program so be ready for the journey! You’ll also find strong support from your peers. By the end of the class you’ll be physically tired but mentally exhilarated. Don’t get too exhausted, though. We hope to see you back the next day! Remember, you can train as much as you want.
