Brazilian or Gracie Jiu Jitsu, made famous by the Gracie family in the early days of the UFC, is one of the most respected and effective grappling arts in the world.

"BJJ" is not based on strength but on using leverage as technique. This allows a much smaller person to defeat a larger opponent.Since most street fights (or MMA fights) end up on the ground, BJJ concentrates on the hierarchy of superior and inferior positions on the ground. This foundation allows practitioners to control and submit their opponents.


Our program is distinct from other Brazilian Jiu Jitsu schools in Barcelona because we give serious attention to the clinch and takedown phase. This skill in the grappling range is necessary to complete your martial arts training in order to truly defend yourself.

Format: The BJJ class begins with a 5-10 minute warm-up followed by the professor demonstrating techniques, and the students drilling of techniques. In some cases students do live drilling for specific positions and/or certain submissions. At the end of the class, time is reserved for open mat where students have the chance to spar live for position and submission holds on the ground.
