Effective martial arts for all skill levels in Huntington Beach, CA

Brazillian jiu jitsu, or BJJ is all about evening the playing field for the little guy. After grappling to take a fight to the ground, leverage and technique are used to manage the damage to both fighters and to overcome physical disadvantages. Healthy diet and lifestyle philosophies are also taught and encouraged to all students to create a program that’s more than your everyday workout; it’s a way of life.

Programs for Beginners

The beginner’s program is geared first towards new students and secondly towards advanced students who want to review fundamentals. Because this program attracts all skill levels, it is often the best opportunity for someone to learn new techniques and share ideas on jiu jitsu with as many different people as possible.

Professional Instruction

Coaches at Gracie Barra are chosen very carefully for their ability to communicate clearly, be engaging to new students and have masterful knowledge of the art. Head coach Alex D’Hue combines all these skills in effortless fluidity that mimics his Jiu Jitsu style. Between the U.S. Marine corps, his MMA and BJJ competition experience and degree in speech communication, you won’t find a more passionate well-rounded teacher anywhere else.

Our Programs

Fundamentals Program

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.


Advanced classes for intermediate to advanced teen and adult practitioners, consist of high-level techniques and drills, followed by several rounds of live grappling.


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.

Practical for Defense

From professional MMA fighter to the U.S. Military, BJJ is trusted to keep anyone as safe as possible in the most dangerous situations imaginable. Its strength is allowing you to stay safer even if you are outsized or outmuscled by an opponent.
