PROGRAMS TO SUIT ALL PEOPLE
For over 30 years, we have offered classes for adults that teach people of all backgrounds and skill levels the art of Jiu-Jitsu.
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 offered classes for adults that teach people 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 at Gracie Barra Sutton Coldfield so students can choose the class that best suits their needs. We have two tiers of classes that address varying degrees of skill and knowledge. They are as follows:
GB1 – This course can be thought of as Jiu-Jitsu for beginners. This course teaches the fundamentals and principles of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu as well as the skills you need to grow personally in a Jiu Jitsu lifestyle.
GB2 - Advance your Jiu-Jitsu knowledge during this course. Take your training beyond the fundamentals and begin to hone the principles you need to succeed, such as discipline, respect, commitment, and leadership. You will need at least three stripes or above on your white belt to access these classes.
In addition to our GB1 and GB2 classes, we also offer:
No Gi - Advance your Jiu-Jitsu knowledge during this course without the traditional kimono, useful for individuals keen to practice MMA. We have designed this class for students of all levels.
Open Mat - Designed for members of all ability to practice techniques learned throughout the week under the supervision of trained coaches and a great opportunity to ask questions in a more relaxed environment.
Live Training- Opportunity for advanced students to practice learned techniques with others in a more competitive environment. Also known as sparring.
Our Gracie Barra Kids Programme is designed to teach children self-discipline and self-defence with a curriculum tailored by age group.
Kids and Teenagers
Our GBK programme is structured similarly to adult courses, with adaptations and modifications made to reach the different age ranges in the class. Jiu-Jitsu classes for children begin with the building blocks that are needed to teach the fundamentals of Jiu-Jitsu. We have developed a curriculum that is structured in a way that shows children and teens the value of routine, cooperation and self-awareness.
The three different classes that we offer are as follows:
GBK TINY CHAMPIONS (4 - 6 years old)
GBK LITTLE CHAMPIONS (7 - 9 years old)
GBK JUNIORS & TEENS (10 - 14 years old)
By practicing Jiu-Jitsu, children learn valuable skills they wouldn’t develop from other sports, including coordination, increased focus and concentration, self-defence, goal setting, confidence and fitness.
Our certified instructors teach children to focus their attention on one task at a time, honing their abilities and developing critical thinking skills. When children learn how to do this, they’ll see a gain in their overall fitness level.
The Gracie Barra Brotherhood provides kids and teens with a sense of community. We are organized like a team, but fight together like a family. This philosophy helps our students build trust and leadership skills with every class, helping them learn valuable life skills that can be used both in and out of the classroom.
By joining our Gracie Barra Sutton Coldfield team for Jiu-Jitsu classes, children can experience a fitness program like no other. Kids and teens alike will enjoy a boost in confidence, better focus and critical self-defense skills.
