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!

Unleash Your Full Potential

Discover Growth & Transformation Through Jiu-Jitsu

YOUR CHILD WILL GROW WITH EVERY CLASS!

Children’s capacity to learn is astounding, absorbing new information with an ease that we, as adults, often envy. It’s not uncommon for parents to notice positive shifts in their children from the very first martial arts session they attend. Each subsequent class is a step forward, layering knowledge upon knowledge.

As they engage in martial arts, they’re not just boosting their physical health; they’re assimilating essential values like self-discipline and respect.

Enrolling your child in our classes does more than equip them with physical expertise. It opens a door to a world where their potential can truly flourish.

BUILDING CHARACTER FOR A LIFETIME OF SUCCESS

In today’s digital world, shaping your children’s character goes beyond their immediate circle, considering the vast influences and potential hazards the internet can present.

The real advantage of our classes extends beyond martial arts techniques; it’s about forging character and success-oriented traits. As they master the art’s skills, guided by our inspiring instructors and surrounded by a supportive community of peers, your children will cultivate a comprehensive set of capabilities. Our environment is designed not just to teach martial arts, but to instill values and skills necessary for lifelong success.

EXERCISE IN DISGUISE

Let’s face it, with today’s diet and endless screen time, many children lack sufficient physical activity.

Our kids’ martial arts sessions are cleverly disguised fitness regimes teeming with enjoyment! They’re brimming with engaging activities, games, and drills that mask the repetitive nature of training.

While it’s vital for children to engage in physical exertion for health, good sleep, and holistic development, our classes play a crucial role in establishing the physical routines essential for their growth into health-conscious adults. Far beyond mere exercise, we’re setting the stage for a lifetime of wellness.

kids jiu jitsu Dana Point

Self-Defense & Anti-bullying

While we hope our children never have to use self-defense tactics in everyday life, their safety remains a paramount concern for every parent.

Our martial arts training takes this responsibility to heart, equipping kids with the skills necessary to protect themselves in various situations, from dealing with bullies to unexpected encounters with strangers.

However, self-defense is just one aspect. Our classes instill in your child the respect and self-discipline required to de-escalate conflicts non-violently when feasible, along with the discernment to understand when physical self-defense is the sole option for safety. This holistic approach ensures your child is prepared for life’s uncertainties.

IT'S ALL ABOUT THE FUN!

Remember, kids will be kids, and they’re entitled to have a blast! While we can’t speak for their regular school experience, we can confidently say your child will find joy and excitement in our martial arts classes.

Crafting a class that maintains a balance between learning, respect, discipline, and fun is no small feat, but that’s precisely what we’ve achieved. Our sessions are bursting with creative activities and games to ensure your kids are continuously engaged and evolving, never finding a dull moment.

Moreover, it’s an excellent opportunity for them (and you!) to forge friendships with other students in a positive, healthy atmosphere. Our dojo is a community where smiles, positive energy, and camaraderie are in abundance.
