The Perfect Spot for Jiu Jitsu Training
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a martial art that originated in Japan. Being invented as a combat sport, this technique is believed to be a direct descendant of the martial art Judo, using ground fighting and grappling techniques to take down even the biggest opponent.
The key idea of this technique is to use leverage and take an opponent to the ground. Experts actually say that when you take the individual to the ground, this is the point where the technique becomes most destructive.

Instructors at Gracie Barra
All instructors at your Jiu Jitsu school are training to present technique in an organized manner. Take for example our head instructor, Professor Alex D’Hue. He is one of the best instructors in our school and has been one for over 8 years.
The professor is known for his devotion and utmost attention to details, which makes him the perfect person for teaching the tricks of this martial art.
Even though this technique is used in competitions and seen as a combat discipline, the majority of students in our school pick Jiu Jitsu for self-defense. Ultimately, this is your best choice of a self-defense technique due to the unique opportunities Jiu Jitsu gives you in terms of positioning, gravity, as well as grappling techniques that allow for fighting off heavier opponents.
The Gracie Barra Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Association welcomes anyone who wants to develop their fighting and self-defense skills. Being spread over 500 locations in the world, our school located near north OC cities such as Stanton and Cypress is one of the best places to practice martial arts.
We have designed programs for all ages and skill levels. If you decide to join us, you will be enrolled in a young age program (3-15 ages), older teens program or adults program.
“Seriously for people struggling to lose weight, its all about patience and doing what you love and have a passion for. The picture to the left is me at my biggest (260 lbs!), eating to oblivion and not doing anything about it. To the right (October, 2016), modified my lifestyle with Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and eating differently, I am very proud that I am at a weight that I never recalled being at in the past. Although I am not finished with this journey, I just wanted to give you guys a little motivation!”
