FUNDAMENTALS (GB1)

Our GB1 Program is intentionally crafted to offer newcomers a thorough grasp of the fundamental aspects of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

ADVANCED (GB2)

The GB2 Program is strategically crafted to serve as a transition from the fundamental Jiu-Jitsu principles to our GB3 Black Belt Program. In GB2, we introduce live training (free sparring) to further explore the art of Jiu-Jitsu, refining technical skills, enhancing transitions, and building chains and sequences. These elements empower aspiring practitioners to cultivate the mindset required for advancing in the GB3 Black Belt program.

BLACK BELT (GB3)

The GB3 Black Belt Program is meticulously crafted to empower students to achieve excellence at the black belt level. GB3 imparts the most up-to-date techniques and core principles of BJJ, enabling students at this stage to recognize how these principles learned in class mirror their life experiences. As a result, they begin applying these principles to their everyday lives.

No-Gi

No-Gi Gracie Barra Jiu-Jitsu, also known as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu without the traditional Gi or kimono, offers a unique approach to the sport. In No-Gi Jiu-Jitsu, participants typically wear shorts and a rash guard, creating a dynamic experience that places a premium on grip control, speed, and agility. This training style enhances the practitioner’s adaptability and agility in ground combat scenarios.

I have trained at so many martial schools for the past 25 years. Most very good however Gracie barra Dana point has something special that I have never experienced. Both the instructor and students at this school make it feel like home. Everyone is treated like family, treated with respect and accommodated no matter what level they are at on their jiu jitsu journey. The vibe is like no where else.

My son has been practicing jiu-jitsu here for about a year and a half and we love it! He enjoys learning all the self-defense moves and it helps him get some energy out. His behavior outside of class has also improved since introducing these lessons. We love the staff, they make it fun for the kids while still imposing good discipline and structure.

It's a Great Place to Learn Brazilian Jiu JItsu! I was no kid when I started but Professor Fernando and all the coaches went out of their way to keep me and everyone in the class safe and make it an enjoyable experience! I was in my 60’s when I started and enjoyed 10 wonderful years there before family matters encouraged a move out of state but I thought so highly of it my adult daughter trained with me and one of my granddaughters trains there currently. The facility is clean and the instructors are both talented and patient which is a rarity in this world It’s easy to be one or the other but both are a real gift. You will get out of it what you put into it but they teach you to be comfortable in uncomfortable situations and it’s a valuable skill in the world we live in now!

I've been to many martial arts and jiu jitsu schools and Gracie Barra Dana Point is by far the best. Even amongst other Gracie Barra's, GB Dana Point is far and above the best for instruction, atmosphere and friendly welcoming environment. My daughter and I both train here and their kids program is incredible. Professor Fernando and Coach Paula do an excellent job instilling confidence and discipline in the kids. My daughter loves coming here and your kid will thrive here as well. We love GB Dana Point!
