About Gracie Barra Jiu-Jitsu
The benefits of training at Gracie Barra Kirkland are far reaching and will touch many aspects of your own life. Our training environment and team-oriented culture nurtures independent thinking, has the ability to teach techniques effectively to a broad spectrum of learning styles, and looks to fundamentally build your style of Jiu-Jitsu and to continually refine it on a very technical level. We will do our best to help to you achieve goals you have set for yourself while training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
The Art of Jiu-Jitsu will not only get your body in top physical condition, but it will also sharpen your mind. Fully committing yourself to Jiu-Jitsu will help you develop or further strengthen a mental fortitude that will allow you to successfully grapple the daily battles of life. Through training sessions, your mind and body will constantly be tested, and within those moments of immense adversity, Jiu-Jitsu will reveal to you a refreshing honesty that will keep you humble and poised to become better; you ultimately will begin to understand yourself on a different level, and what you are truly capable of in regards to your potential. It's no secret, the more you are on the mat training, helping the team, and accruing knowledge, the more improvement you will feel.

Through the Art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, we all have found a common ground and a place where a deep, unbreakable, and life-long camaraderie has been forged.
