Womens martial arts and self-defence classes

Womens martial arts and self-defence classes

From the very beginning of Gracie Barra, Master Carlos Gracie Jr. has had one goal in mind: Jiu-Jitsu for Everyone. For over 30 years, we have taught classes for men, women and children of all backgrounds and skill levels the art of Jiu-Jitsu. Our structured curriculum is designed specifically to help you succeed during your training in the art of Jiu-Jitsu.

We offer a wide range of adult Jiu-Jitsu classes in Surfers Paradise so students can choose the class that best suits their needs. We have three tiers of classes that address varying degrees of skill and knowledge. They are as follows:

Have a vision of your best self in mind – your vision has to be in line with your personal virtue,  beliefs and goals for a strong you. If your vision is not strong enough, you may want to revisit your belief system and see whether it’s for your personal growth. We believe the training BJJ will help you build that best self.
