Gracie Barra is a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Association, with over 700 schools on six continents. The organisation was founded by Carlos Gracie Jr., who grew up heavily influenced by his family, especially his father Carlos Gracie Sr. and his brother Rolls Gracie. While working as Roll's assistant instructor, Rolls suddenly died and Carlos was asked to assume the head instructor role. As one of the latest count from the organisation, they have graduated more than 600 black belts around the world.
All Gracie Barra Schools follow a teaching curriculum designed by Carlos Gracie Jr himself. Gracie Barra Programs are structured logically to keep students motivated to learn, practice and perform to the best of their abilities.
Gracie Barra Burleigh Heads was inaugurated in 2017 and is led by Pedro Rodrigues, a former student of Alexandre Soca and Marcelo Rezende.
Instructor Lineage: Mitsuo Maeda >> Carlos Gracie >> Helio Gracie >> Rolls Gracie >> Carlos Gracie Jr >> Marcelo Rezende >> Pedro Rodrigues
Have just recently enrolled both myself and my 7 year old boy down at Gracie Barra Burleigh and it's great! Professor Pedro is a cool Brazilian man whom is clearly extremely knowledgable and willing to impart his knowledge in a clear, concise and understandable manner...the dojo itself is immaculately clean and professionally presented, and all the students have been friendly, approachable and welcoming. If you are thinking about starting but not sure where, get down and check it out!
Originally I signed my son up then my daughter watched and decided she wanted to join and so did my husband! It's fantastic for kids the discipline is great but it's fun at the same time and they are learning to protect themselves which is so important. Pedro is fantastic. It has a real family feel about it which is nice.
I have been to other Jiu Jitsu schools but Gracie Barra has definitely stood out from the customer service to the training modality, for my kids and my husband they absolutely love training with Professor Pedro and the team!
