We are ordinary citizens transforming ourselves, becoming stronger, healthier and happier people through the practice of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Women's classes operate off of the same curriculum as the men.
Women get solid Jiu-Jitsu training while working with each other in a supportive community. We are proud to be the leader of the Womens BJJ movement and the only school in the city with a full womens team schedule. Gracie Barra Colorado Springs offers Women Only Instruction 7 times a week and a program that has been developed over the last 6 years!
Another unique feature about our Womens Jiu-Jitsu Program is that it is led by a woman! She has showcased Women's Jiu-Jitsu through her career as a competitor, a coach, an academy co-owner and a mother.
Gracie, slight of frame and physically unimposing, shocked the nation with his fighting spirit and mastery of his family's martial art.
With this historic win and the arrival of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in the United States, the world of martial arts was changed forever.
He built this Academy around the principles of teamwork and brotherhood. Through careful combination of instruction, observation, feedback, and practice, our students experience results that go far beyond just physical gains.
By following the principles for effective fighting set by Master Carlos Gracie, ordinary people become masters of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu through professional, guided, introspective training. Consistent physical activity and training towards a common goal makes it easier to concentrate in class, at work, and at home.
As Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu trains both the mental and physical self, students experience a reduction to their overall stress levels and an increase to their everyday focus, stamina, and drive. Arrive 15 minutes early to your first class and become acquainted with the training area. An instructor or senior student will help guide you through the lessons.
All skill levels are welcome. Reviews My son has attended this academy for four years with professor Bryan Waltz. One of the best decisions we ever made. The children's program is above any other!
Professor and the coaches are great at providing a safe place to learn! They teach the fundamentals of this martial art while incorporating self- defense, discipline and fun, but also provide a challenge for the more advanced students in class! It's perfect for any age or level!
I have been training there for a week now and am treated as if I have trained there for years. The team is very welcoming and supportive of one another. I got there a little early one day and was able to watch the kids class.
The professor was very good with the children; he was able to keep them focused on learning and allowed them to expend their energy in a productive manner all while making it fun for the kids.
I will be bringing my son in to attend the children class. If you are looking for a family orientated, welcoming and professional place to polish those jujitsu skills Gracie Barra Colorado Springs is the place.
You would never guess that there are so many GB chapters around the world, as Professor Bryan makes us feel unique in our own way.
This club is very fun, technical, and competitive, without the boot camp feeling. There will be no doubt that this club will be a fixture in the Colorado Springs area for a long time to come!
