Gracie Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is the official hand-to-hand self defence combat system of the United States Military and law enforcement agencies all around the world. Founded on easy and instinctive movements, this reality-based self defence method was designed so that the practitioner can learn practical self defence in the shortest possible time.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu adults classes incorporate all levels from 13 years old and above. The Gracie Balmain classes usually consists of a 10 minute warm up, half an hour technique and ‘drills’ (practising techniques with increased intensity) and 20 minutes of ‘rolling’ (realistically competing for submission).

All Gracie Balmain classes are supervised by a qualified instructor. No aggressive or unsportsmanlike behaviour is tolerated, a friendly environment is maintained throughout the session.
