Welcome to Gracie Barra Praia

Barra da Tijuca, Rio de Janeiro, RJ, Brazil

We are Student Experience Obsessed. Whether you’re an old school black belt or a day-one white belt, whether you are a high level competitor or just roll for fun with your friends, whether you prefer to go surf and skip a training session or have an açaí admiring the sunset at the beach, whether you are a big family with a bunch of kids or a backpacker, we are experience makers, we have something for you.


Everything we do as a camp, as a school, as a community member, and as an employer is to improve the lives of those around us. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is the engine that makes lives better. From meeting different people and creating a brotherhood to being part of a lifestyle which allows you to become the best version of yourself, understanding what you are capable of, having healthy habits, building self-esteem, promoting responsibility and discipline.


So we take the opportunity to invite you to come roll with us to learn something different, have some life-changing fun, and meet some new folks from around the globe who share your passion to live the Brazilian jiu-jitsu lifestyle. We hope to see you this winter!
