“Discipline and consistency. I owe these two factors all have attained in my life. Things have never happened overnight. Results have appeared as a consequence of decades long toil. It is necessary to persist.” – Master Carlos Gracie Jr.
Amazing things are happening at Gracie Barra Whittier. Residents of Whittier and surrounding cities are getting in shape, losing weight and learning self-defense skills through the world’s best and proven martial arts training system; Gracie Barra Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
It’s important to note, not all martial arts studios are created equal. Our direct link to Master Carlos Gracie Sr. & Master Carlos Gracie Jr. means that when you take classes with us your own lineage is directly tied to the roots of this amazing martial art. Pretty cool; right?
It’s not just our lineage that separates us from “other” martial arts schools. We have proven teaching methods, world re-known martial arts programs & an instructors certification program that ensures you’re being taught be somebody with the Gracie Barra stamp of approval. Everything we do is directly overseen by Master Carlos Gracie Jr. himself. There’s a reason why martial artists all over the world rave about learning jiu-jitsu with Gracie Barra. In fact, we currently have over 600 schools worldwide that hang Gracie Barra banner. We call this “Representing the Red Shield”.
It’s important to know we offer classes to all experience, fitness & age levels. In fact, some of our Whittier students are as young as 4 years old and a couple of our students are well into their 60’s. This is possible because we don’t lump everybody into one class. We have a variety of different classes; each with its own focus. Some of our classes focus more on self-defense while other focus more on competition. Some of our classes are for kids, some for juniors other classes are for adults. No matter what your goal is, we have an amazing, engaging & fun class that will fit your schedule and expectations.
