Women Empowered. Boost your confidence and redefine yourself!
Although martial arts can be intimidating for women, our classes are definitely not intimidating. You’ll notice a very positive and friendly environment when you enter our school.
Once you master the basics you will really enjoy the intensity of a class based on effective self-defence techniques and real life scenarios.
Top performing fighters and individuals follow a common set of principles that sustain their success. The practice of Gracie Barra Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu allows individuals to understand these principles through an exciting process that combines instruction, observation, practice, appropriate feedback, live training and competition.
Students experience results that go beyond gains in strength, flexibility, fitness or self-defense skills. By remaining truthful to the lessons learned in practice and applying them off the mats, Gracie Barra students experience an overall improvement on their focus, energy and general well-being.
Our Fundamentals Program teaches these basic principles of effective fighting to individuals like you. Its structure condenses an immense diversity of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu into core fundamental moves combined intelligently and safely to optimize your learning.
While the Fundamentals Program focuses on the building blocks and basic principles of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, the Advanced Program is built on high-level techniques and drills that start shaping the students game flow through the development of reflexes, speed and reaction time as well as transitions between one technique and another.
After a few months in the GB Advanced Program students typically experience a deeper involvement in GB’s philosophy, a stronger bond with training partners as well as more discipline and commitment to healthy habits that keep them in good shape.
Advanced Program classes are based on a defined class structure and curriculum that take a broad and open-minded approach, incorporating techniques from different grappling styles like wrestling, judo, sambo, and, of course, Gracie Barra Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
I feel that Jiu-Jitsu and Gracie Barra St Peters have empowered me as a woman and given me self defense skills that enable me to be out on my own without fear.
"I've trained various martial arts for the last 6/7 years. From experience, this is a very high level school with fantastic instructors and students who create a welcoming environment."
"My only regret about training at Gracie Barra St Peters is that I didn't start a long time ago. The atmosphere here is very welcoming, the professors & coaches are very friendly & professional. Highly recommend starting your Jiu Jitsu journey here."
"Starting Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in my late 40's in 2014 was unquestionably challenging both physically and mentally.
Fabio , Murilo and Felipe have expertly shown me that Jiu Jitsu is indeed for Everyone. I am now experiencing that following the Gracie Barra Jiu Jitsu journey is certainly life changing and I have no doubt that it will always provide me with an untapped source of positive energy."
