Gracie Barra Hoppers Crossing is a premium Brazilian Jiu Jitsu school with a mission to teach the highest level of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and practical, reality-based self defense and fundamental mixed martial arts to our local community.



Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is our primary offering and was the first martial art to dominate the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and it remains one of the most effective forms of self-defence and an essential component of modern mixed martial arts. As a grappling-centric art, the goal is to submit your opponent with joint locks and chokes whereby the use of technique and leverage and BJJ was designed to allow a smaller person defeat a stronger foe.

Reality-based Self Defense

Reality Based Self Defense (RBSD) refer to a system of self defense that focus exclusively on reality based self defense scenarios and conditions. Hence the words "reality based." Unlike mixed martial arts and traditional martial arts styles RBSD is not a hobby or sport and it does not participate in tournaments of sport combat competitions. It's all about learning how to defend yourself. The RBSD system taught by Gracie Barra Hoppers Crossing covers the pre-attack, attack and post attack phase, including how to avoid, de-escalate, escape, fight phases, all delivered in a workshop group format.

Mixed Martial Arts

As popularised by the Ultimate Fighting Championships (UFC), Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) is a combination of the very best of all martial arts and combat sports for use in a competitive environment. 

The way it is taught at Gracie Barra Hoppers Crossing is a fundamental MMA syllabus embedded in a fitness program call BarraFit.  This specialized fitness-based program offered exclusively by Gracie Barra that draws on the training methods of fundamental Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) to build an effective martial arts inspired fitness program. It incorporates the philosophy, teaching and training methods of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ), striking, kicking and takedowns into classes that are specifically designed to help individuals meet their fitness goals and get to learn mixed martial arts. However, BarraFit MMA is more than just a workout. It is a fitness program built with the same components that make the Gracie Barra training experience so unique, inspiring, welcoming, challenging and safe. BarraFit MMA is trained with the GB rashvest and GB short, and with MMA gloves.
