The Gracie Barra School in Springfield is well known for its commitment to teaching high level Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. At our school, you will receive hands on attention from our world class instructors who will monitor your progress in a clean, safe, and family-friendly environment. Our black belt instructor Marcos Barros has trained under legendary Master Carlos Gracie Jr., at the original Gracie Barra Academy, located in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Under Master Carlos’ tutelage, Marcos Barros gained extensive knowledge of the “gentle art” that was formed on the same mats as some of the best BJJ instructors and fighters ever known.
Our school is for everyone and anyone who is looking to get in shape, learn self defense, and improve the overall quality of their lives. In addition our family-oriented environment is a perfect place to teach your children to feel safe not only when they are at school or outside playing, but also in developing their self-confidence and discipline.
