Best choice for fitness and a must for women of all ages. I was never interested in sports (let alone martial arts). But I gave it a try (first lesson is free) and I loved it. After training for a year or so I was competing in various competitions, including American Open (bronze, gold), Pan Ams (bronze, silver) and World (bronze) and usually always placed in the top 3, which is the best evidence of the quality of this school. The instructors here are very encouraging, always helpful and genuinely interested in improving your skill. The curriculum is very well thought out, methodical and consistent. The schedule is very flexible and allows me to choose a class that is convenient since I am a working professional. I highly recommend this school to anyone who is interested in fitness, wants to relieve stress after a long day a work or compete at the high level. Gracie Barra Jiu Jitsu is, indeed, for everyone.
