Gracie Teens

NEW additional Teens and Toddlers classes


As of March 2015, next week Gracie Sydney Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) are changing our Kids schedule to better accommodate all of the children in our programs. We will now be adding a Gracie Juniors section in addition to narrowing the age range of our Gracie Teens group. The idea behind this is to keep class more organized and lessons plans in line with the age group so that children are maximizing learning.

Gracie Teens is now for children aged 13-16, Gracie Juniors is ages 9-13, and Gracie Kids is ages 5-9.

The new Teens Class is geared towards transitioning students smoothly into Adult Classes. If they are in the Teens Class and are interested in join in on some Adult Classes, please come and seek permission from one of our Instructors.

Our new Kids Comp Class is invitation only depending on Instructor approval. It is an advanced class open to Kids, Juniors, and Teens who are serious, consistent, and truly interested in growing their Jiu Jitsu to represent the school in National and International Competitions.

Those Juniors who can not make one of the Juniors Classes can still join in the Kids Classes. Those Teens who can not make a Teens Class can join in on a Juniors Class. We have also added an additional Gracie Tots (Toddlers aged 3-5) Class on Fridays.

Tired of the GYM? Try Women’s Only BJJ Classes

We’ve been there- wanting to create a healthy lifestyle for yourself but seemingly faced with activity options that actually aren’t that interesting. Or worse, no other females or group to help encourage and support your healthy decisions.
The key to maintaining an active lifestyle is to do something you enjoy. If the repetitive nature of many ‘fitness’ and ‘workout’ programs makes you lose interest you will need to find something more engaging and something a little different. Gracie Sydney Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) offers a FREE Trial Class with one of our Instructors that will introduce you to Gracie Jiu Jitsu, Self Defense, and basic body movements and techniques such as rolling and falling.
If you’re looking for something new and different there’s no reason not to give Jiu Jitsu a go- for fitness, community, learning, self defense, and self confidence. You won’t find anything else quite like it.
Learn more about our Women’s Only Classes and see what our Gracie Sydney Women’s Team is up to in our Facebook group. We recently had an association wide open mat, here are some pics from the event!
