Fundamentals of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

To improve at anything you must first learn the basics. Our Fundamentals program is designed to introduce the techniques and concepts of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to our students in a controlled environment. 

Gracie Barra has developed an innovated program for beginners to safely and effectively learn and practice jiu-jitsu. This system takes students through a progression of positions, movements and techniques, with each building on the previous one. Structured drills and controlled sparring help our students learn and progress quickly in a safe setting.

Upon completing the minimum requirements of the Fundamentals Program, students will have a solid grasp on the self defense side of jiu-jitsu. At this point they can begin participating in the Advanced Adult Program. In this program students will continue to develop the basic skills they've learned while being introduced to new competition techniques and strategies.

Training sessions include a guided warm-up followed by technical instruction by one of our experienced black belt instructors. After the technical drilling portion of class, students are paired for timed grappling rounds.

No-Gi is a style of Jiu-Jitsu which has gained popularity through the growth of mixed martial arts. A major difference in styles is the absence of the traditional BJJ uniform. Instead, a tshirt, lycra rashguard, and board shorts are use for training. The lack of material can make it difficult to control slippery opponent. Many of the gi dependent grips have to be modified in order to finish submission holds.

Traditional gi jiu-jitsu is often slower paced and methodical where no-gi tends to be explosive and faster paced. it is highly recommended for students to have a solid foundation in gi jiu-jitsu before jumping into no-gi classes.

BJJ Lab is a special training curriculum for students looking to increase the intensity of their training and expand their limitations. These training sessions are only open to members that posses a solid understanding of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu principles and techniques.

These sessions, held twice per week in our upstairs training area, are perfect for anyone looking to compete or simply sharpen their technique. Students and instructors can often be found reviewing and exploring techniques after class.

I met Professor Lawrence today and I was blown away by how welcoming and amazing he and the entire academy are. It was also really awesome as had a friend with me that had no impression of any martial arts and she was super excited as well. You will be hard pressed to find a better place never mind value for your money. The all inclusive atmosphere at the best price I’ve ever seen in my all years. I can’t wait to get started there and I’m blessed to be joining. Thank you Professor 🥋🙏🤝

Been training with Gracie Barra North Orlando since May of 2011 and gotta say it's been one of the greatest experiences of my life. Jiu jitsu is just an incredible martial art that I believe everyone should learn. The people here are just absolutely amazing, friendly, and helpful. Professor Gutty is a world champion and is extremely passionate. The facility is great, 2 huge areas downstairs and upstairs - a weight room, and a conditioning room. Check it out, you will not regret it.

I’ve been training here consistently for over 3.5 years, and it’s my absolute favorite activity I’ve ever done. I love jiu-jitsu, but it’s the people (students and teachers) and the environment here that really makes me want to train everyday. I’ve visited other schools, but I have not yet seen a more diverse and balanced group. There are all walks of life of all ages. There is a wide spectrum of training, where you have people that train occasionally just for fun to people that just do it for the exercise to world champion, competition athletes. There is a niche for everyone.
