Train with experienced instructors at Gracie Barra Garden Grove
Effective martial arts for all skill levels in Anaheim, CA
Gracie Barra Garden Grove combines the confidence of training a martial art, the satisfaction of an intense workout, and the enrichment of philosophical character building in one efficient program. Jiu Jitsu, or BJJ, applies takedowns, reversals chokes and joint locks on the ground to minimize the threat of strikes and put you in control of the fight. This system is especially empowering to those who are not as physically or athletically gifted as their opponent, making it an extremely popular martial art for both sport and self-defense.
Classes for Beginners
While we offer many classes at Gracie Barra, our beginners program is our most popular. We have students from white to brown belt, all benefiting by learning or reviewing the fundamentals of the art. Our patient coaching staff, inviting atmosphere and moderate pace of the class makes all the techniques easy to follow while still being engaging at all levels.
Having the right head coach for you is one of the most overlooked and most important pats of training BJJ. Professor Alex D’Hue is an example of a world class coach who can adapt to a variety of training styles and preferences. His genuine enthusiasm and deep desire to see each student succeed is something that can be hard to come by. Backed by a degree in speech communications, Marine Corps and combat sport experience, he leads a talented group of students and a rapidly growing gym.
Fundamentals classes properly introduce teens and adults to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu by starting with safety, basic: movements, positions, strategy and an optional introduction to sparring at the end of each session.
Our summer camp for kids is so more than just martial arts. Overall the 3 areas we focus on are: 1. Activities, 2. Education, 3. Martial Arts. Instruction extends far beyond the typical 1 hour Future Champions classes by including multiple hours of training each day to not only help children grow their technical proficiency, but also character and fitness.
The Future Champions program consists of 3 levels: Little Champions for ages 4 to 6, Juniors for ages 7 to 12, and Kids Competition. Our children's program is among the most established in Orange County.
For a martial art to be effective for self-defense, it needs to be street applicable, cover a variety of positions and allow for a weaker fighter to survive or reverse a worst-case scenario. BJJ proved itself in the UFC and with various recorded challenge matches. It’s the only martial art in the world that uses technique and leverage from the bottom to generate offensive submissions or reversals, giving you the best chance to be in control wherever the fight takes place.
