Welcome to Gracie Barra Santa Ana
Welcome to Gracie Barra Santa Ana the first Gracie Barra Premium School in United States
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu was first introduced in the United States about twenty years ago, and today it is the fastest growing Martial Art in the US. It focuses on ground-fighting, or grappling, techniques and uses basic principles of leverage which enable smaller practitioners to control, defeat and escape from bigger opponents. For these reasons, it is the most applicable Martial Art for both men and women seeking effective self-defense training.
Because Master Carlos Gracie wants his students to be prepared for any situation on the street, the curriculum includes “Self Defense ” of BJJ techniques. By adapting the sport of BJJ to address the street environment (i.e. multiple opponents, weapons, no-gi, unorthodox attacks), students (among them police officers and elite military personnel), are able to address real life and death situations. Now we are locate in Santa Ana California so, whether you’re looking for an intense workout, unrivaled self-defense training, world-class competition, you’ll love our program.
Message from Master Carlos Gracie Jr
"At the heart of the Gracie Barra Family's extraordinary success over the years is our strong philosophy and mission as a group, a foundation which our masters laid many years ago, but is constantly being reinforced by the great people that make our community. Jiu-Jitsu is a beautiful art, and we have a vision of how it should be taught as a means for individual development going beyond the competitive realm. To achieve this vision, we must remember to come together as a family, always putting the team in front of individual. For that, we will fight to the end for what we believe is right".

Quote of the week
“Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.”
- Theodore Roosevelt -
