About Gracie Barra Santa Ana
Welcome to Gracie Barra Santa Ana (GBSA), the first Gracie Barra Premium School in the United States. Our doors opened in 2007 offering world-class Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) training for Men, Women and Children.
Since BJJ was first introduced to the United States it has become the fastest growing Martial Art in the US and for good reason. BJJ is a ground game, it uses basic principles of leverage, which enable smaller practitioners to control, defeat and escape from bigger opponents.
At GBSA, you will learn BJJ through the hands-on attention from our progress oriented professor and instructors who are trained under the Gracie Barra Curriculum created by Master Carlos Gracie Jr. Our team members are certified by the Gracie Barra Association and each individual has years of experience in teaching, competing and studying the art of BJJ.
You may have heard the saying “Jiu-Jitsu is for everyone” this is because practicing Gracie Barra’s curriculum offers unrivaled self-defense moves, children’s anti-bullying techniques, an intense workout, and world-class competition training. No matter what focus applies, you will love our program!
