Our Beginners Program is very important to us, because it is responsible for engaging new students and building the fundamental skills of our team. Lessons are always easy to follow and techniques are repeated to ensure complete understanding by all students, yet challenging enough to be useful to anyone at any level of Jiu Jitsu.
Being a Head Coach at a Gracie Barra gym is a high honor for any BJJ practitioner. Alex D’Hue takes this responsibility very seriously, approaching every training session with enthusiasm and greeting every student with warmth. His extensive combat experience with the U.S. Marines and in martial arts competition combined with his degree in speech communication and friendly personality make him the perfect combination of knowledgeable and relatable as a Head Coach.
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.
