Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu or BJJ , is a grappling and ground-fighting martial art that focuses on the skill of controlling one’s opponent through techniques that cause him or her to submit. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is recognised as “the gentle art,” letting a smaller, weaker individual defend himself against a larger opponent by applying leverage and submissions.

Beyond blessed to learn from the best. Prof Bruno and Prof Alisson are committed and passionate about sharing their knowledge in BJJ, and are very professional as well. The place is clean, beautiful and minimalistic! On top of that, it is located in such a convenient area, just a short 5 minute walk away from Bugis MRT.

Gracie Barra Singapore offers an authentic and quality Brazilian Jiu -Jitsu experience, that caters to all levels, from beginners, experienced and to kids, with something new to learn every time you step into the gym. Has a great family orientated culture as well, which I’m already feeling just 1 month in. The space is very clean and it smells like home. Training here is as fun as it gets because everyone’s driven but at the same time down to earth, so rest assured we’ve got your back.

I started at Gracie Barra Singapore back in September 2021 and it was the best decision I have made. As a 42 year old I was reluctant to start BJJ at such an advanced age, but the instructors were not only the best, but also very welcoming. The other students were also very nice and showed support from day 1. I am very happy to be part of GB Singapore.
