Greg Fernandes Happy BJJ Student

I have been training with Prof Burchfield since 1994. At that time he was teaching Hsing-I Kung Fu. He helped me overcome terrible back problems and build myself back to the person I was before my troubles started. I was there when he first started down his path learning Jiu-Jitsu. The road he travelled most people would never have the strength to go. Without an instructor locally to learn from, he literally travelled the world to train with some of the most accomplished practitioners in the world. Now associated with Gracie Barra and Flavio Almeida, Jim has developed the classroom structure to develop world class practitioners himself.




Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ)

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is the single most effective martial art you can learn for self defense. Unlike most martial arts, Jiu Jitsu doesn’t rely on size and strength. It’s all about leverage and joint manipulation.

A smaller person could easily use BJJ techniques to defeat a much larger and stronger opponent. Since real-world fights often end up on the ground, training in a martial art that focuses exclusively on ground combat is both practical and prudent. An added bonus of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is that it will get you in shape.

Best of all, with Jiu Jitsu, exercise is fun, never a chore.

Women's Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Why should a female be part of Gracie Barra? Aside from all classes offered in the Adults Gracie Barra Program Structure, our school offers a set of classes designed to introduce women to the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. As a martial art designed to allow the weaker to defeat the stronger, BJJ is a perfect fit for women who are interested in learning how to protect themselves ? And who wouldn’t be, right?

The Gracie Barra Women’s Program combines a comprehensive self-defense curriculum with emphasis on drills that simulate realistic attack and escape situations. The techniques are complemented by a strong fitness component that is second to none compared to classes offered in regular gyms. Classes specially designed for women like Rape Prevention, BJJ Conditioning and social “get togethers” are added benefits to the ordinary GB activities and create a strong bond between the members of the “Gracie Barra Pink Team.” Benefits of Joining our Womens Program:

Kid's Brazilian Jiu Jitsu & Self-Defense

In 4200 hours you could graduate from college, get your Masters Degree and your Ph.D. So why wouldn’t you let your child spend this valuable time learning skills that will last a lifetime? When our kids get out of school, their parents know that their child is being trained in real Life Skills. With our busy 21st century schedules, it’s hard to find the time and resources to really help them with these important life skills.

You would think and expect that they would learn about perseverance, positive mental attitudes, self-discipline and goal setting in school, but they really don’t. Students who attend Gracie Barra Burton have an advantage over others because we teach them about these important life skills and how to develop them to their fullest! They learn success traits that will pay off for the rest of their lives.
