The Gracie Barra Kids Program was created to provide children ages 3-15 with an environment that allows them to experience and understand core values like resilience, focus, discipline, cooperation and respect. We create champions in life.
The Gracie Barra GB1, GB2 and GB3 Programs teach the best self defence skills and also the students will experience a deeper involvement in GB's philosophy, a stronger bond with training partners as well as more discipline and commitment to healthy habits that keep them in good shape.
Our women’s martial arts program is designed to teach women how to defend against any attacker – even those who are significantly larger in size. Our instructors will help you run drills to simulate realistic attack and escape situations you might encounter in the real world. With practice, you can leverage an attacker’s weight against them, allowing you to escape and get to safety unharmed. The self-defense techniques taught in this class use Jiu-Jitsu fundamentals that complement our selection of additional adult classes.
In addition to effective self-defense techniques, our women’s program is a great solution for anyone who wants to take their fitness routine to the next level. Gracie Barra’s Jiu-Jitsu techniques and versatile class schedules are a great way to keep your fitness routine from plateauing. Enjoy aerobic exercise and strength training that will help you achieve your fitness goals faster and more efficiently than classes offered in regular gyms.
Our martial arts classes for women include Rape Prevention, Jiu-Jitsu Conditioning and even social “get togethers” so you can swap Jiu-Jitsu tips and techniques with other like-minded women. We offer a sense of community that is unparalleled by any other martial arts studio in the world.

YOUR FIRST CLASS AT GRACIE WEST RYDE!
You’ll notice a very positive and friendly environment when you enter our school. Although martial arts can be intimidating for women, this class is definitely not intimidating. You will find a group of girls who are excited to be there and excited to have you there. The instructor will run several basic drills and after a few classes you will catch up with the rest of the group. Once you master the basics you will really enjoy the intensity of a class based on effective self-defense techniques and real-life scenarios. Make sure to book your free trial class!
Private classes are available for students who feel they need to refine their techniques through 1-on-1 instruction, or for students who are looking at taking a few lessons to build up some confidence through 1-on-1 instruction, before they start attending classes with our GB West Ryde family of students.
Excellent experience. Staff were helpful and friendly and treated my child like he’d been one of the BJJ family for years. Trainers were professional and helpful.

Hi Prof. Julio,
I saw it via email. We don’t use a lot of social media. We just happened to see the email! Lucky. :) The exercises today worked well. We will use a laptop next time and not the IPad. Lol
It was so good to see you and we really enjoyed the class. Brinley was so happy to get back to his jujutsu. We really appreciate you setting all this up. I think it will work really well.
Absolutely recommended. Professor Julio and the coaches have been teaching my kids for the last 5 years. They are all very patient and dedicated. You can see how much they love their jobs. My boys have learnt a great deal from Jiujitsu and I enjoy watching them learn and absorb Prof. Julio’s passion for BJJ.
Great place to learn BJJ with expert instruction and a friendly atmosphere. We're very lucky to have Prof. Julio Guerra teach in our area.
I can see Professor Julio has a lot of time for his students, making sure the technique is perfected. It's my second class today1 It's all I've been thinking of this week!
Prof Julio is the perfect instructor. Patient, knowledgeable, polite... but deadly!!
All the staff at Gracie Barra West Ryde are excellent to deal with. Very understanding and are willing to help you whenever they can.
All the students are very warm and welcoming and are all great training partners.
I would recommend GBWR to everyone and anyone.
Great place, great teacher. Ive known Julio for more than 6 years now and throughout this time Julio has showed to be of great knowledge, great character and willing to go the extra mile to make sure that his techniques are being passed on. If you are looking for a place to get the best out of you look no further.
Our five year old son comes twice a week. Professor and Coach are awesome! Patient, professional and the kids love training!
Awesome place to learn Jiu-Jitsu. People here are friendly, everyone is helpful and Professor Julio is very thorough and clear when demonstrating techniques. Great for all levels!
