The coaches here really went above and beyond to help me be comfortable. There was no belittling or insecurity. They are genuinely there to help you learn and get better. I got freaked out in my first session because it was a choke hold. They were super cool about me going at my own pace and had no issue with me sitting out after I freaked out. Every coach came over to encourage me and let me know it was a particularly intense lesson. They had me come back another day. I faced my fear and got back on the mat and ended up have a really fun time. The coaches were just really great about everything. I was so afraid they would embarrass me for not being able to finish the session or tell me I was being a wuss and they never did. Everything they said was encouraging me to keep going and see this as an opportunity to improve.
My Sons are doing great in only 2 months of training.....
It’s a terrific place , good environment. The professor keeps it simple and the curriculum is suitable for everyone. I’m 5’10 297 lb and I can do it. I’m not as flexible as I once was, but jujitsu has shown me that I’m more flexible than I thought. I’m new here but I feel at home. Hope to one day update this 10-15 years from now and be like “yup! Still here!” 💪🏼😎
Best place ever. We do Zumba, Eat hot chip, and play Fortnite. I’m a blue belt 😎
I have been practicing jujitsu since 2008 and it has helped me a lot with life and focus.
We love Gracie Barra is has shown our son discipline,determination and dedication. Professor Ramses is the best..!! My son has been in Gracie Barra Santa Ana for 4 years and he loves it..!!
Gracie Barra Santa Ana has changed my life in so many ways. It helps teach you discipline, integrity, family values, self defense, healthy lifestyle habits and It really is so much fun. Professor Ramses puts his heart into the academy and constantly pushes us to do better. The people we train with become our family. My son trains here too and sharing the passion for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu has made us closer then ever. I recommend this academy over any other. The level of training they offer can’t be found anywhere else. I’ve enjoyed every moment on the mat and am looking forward to training here for as long as I am physically able to. Do a trial day and see for yourself! Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is amazing for any age gender and size and will give you a confidence you will always carry with you.
