Gracie Barra Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu brings world class martial arts training to Washington, MO!

The location/facilities are great with plans to expand with growth. The instructors are experienced martial artists and great teachers for both adults and kids.

If you want a fun way to get in shape, make new friends, learn a self-defense system that WORKS (without ever having to punch someone in the face), then you need to come check this place out and take a FREE trial class.

Great BJJ school. I always stop in for a class when I'm in Washington. Tyler is a very welcoming instructor and I'd recommend GB Washington to everyone regardless of their size, shape, age, or experience.

So I’ve been waiting to post my review because you can always like something at first then begin to hate it. Not the case with Gracie Barra at all. I love training here. My husband and I go together every other day. Monday, Wednesday and Friday. They have a variety of classes so it’s not just Jiu Jitzu but your membership fee covers all classes if you’re interested. Tyler and Sam are the best. They are the trainers and if you’re having a problem understanding anything they are always there to help. Coolest people I’ve ever met. They definitely make you feel like you can do it when you feel like you can’t. I’ve only been training for a few weeks, but I feel like they’ve made a difference. 10/10 would recommend...

If I could give them 10 stars, I would! My son (12) and daughter (9) have been coming to GB-Washington since it opened. They have gained respect, discipline, and confidence. Most importantly, they love going to class! We tried everything under the sun as far as sports, soccer, dance, gymnastics. This is by far their favorite, and as a parent, it’s also the most fun to watch! It’s actually the first activity that I don’t dread taking them to. Everyone from the other parents to the adult members are very supportive. It truly feels like a family.

Here’s the bottom line: I don’t care how many medals my kids win or how quickly they can become a black belt. I don’t want my son to be prey for bullies, and I don’t want my daughter to be helpless in a sexual assault. I am so thrilled they are learning defensive skills to help them in REAL LIFE situations.

If you want to raise strong, confident and respectful child this is the place! Amazing team of professionals! All coaches have unique way of working with kids and encourage them to do well and excel not only in Jiujitsu but at school and life as well!

We’re very thankful for the fantastic instructors at Gracie Barra. In the nearly two years since our son joined, his skills, confidence, and competitive drive have grown even more than we’d hoped! He loves competing, and has formed some great friendships. I only wish we had signed him up earlier!

I've trained at a nearly a dozen martial arts gyms and this one really stands out as one of the best. If your inexperienced, your going to learn the ropes with solid instruction in an non-intimidating atmosphere. everyone is super positive and friendly, and the curriculum covers all the bases from self defense to sport BJJ. Great gym!

Kyle J.

I have been in and around martial arts all of my life. The professionalism and care brought by the leadership team at Gracie Barra/ Washington is second to none. Their clientele is put first in everything they do and it shows! Whether you are a high level or beginner you will have no better martial arts experience than at Gracie Barra/Washington!

Nick D.

My kids go here for jiu jitsu and they love it. They're 5 and 7 and coach Tyler does an amazing job balancing coaching with a heavy dose patience for all the random events that come with ones still little. The atmosphere is also amazing, they treat everyone like family.

I had a chance to train at this gym while on vacation. I wanted to take the time to write a review because I had such a positive experience. I've trained at a lot of gyms over the years and Gracie Barra Washington is one of the tops. Excellent instructor and an overall great training vibe. If you live in the area I would definitely check them out.

Herb Starlin

Coach Tyler and his team are so patient and kind with each child. Their heart for the sport and coaching shows in their professionalism and positive attitude. The new facility is also a great upgrade. Thankful for what you bring to our community and our kiddos!

The Gracie Barra gym in Washington, MO is an excellent place to train Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Coach Tyler is very knowledgeable and extremely professional. I would recommend this gym to any person of any age group. If you have even the slightest interest or desire to train Jiu-Jitsu, I encourage you to stop by and talk to coach Tyler, and come in for the introductory class. The coaches are great with kids and take their education seriously. Not only do the kids (and adults) learn Jiu-Jitsu, but they learn life skills, how to interact with others politely and with good manners, and a healthy respect for authority. For myself, this has been a life-changing, and humbling experience. Not only are the instructors excellent, but the comradery I am finding here is fantastic. Everyone you train with has a great attitude and only wants to help you get better. Ego's get checked at the door and coach Tyler is excellent at keeping things this way. I look forward to training here for many years to come.

I'm very pleased with this place after signing up my 5 year old about 6 weeks ago. Coaches are great. They teach discipline, respect, sportsmanship, and hard work! My kid has shown great improvements not just in class, but his overall behavior at home as well. Not to mention, BJJ is by far the most practical martial art for self defense techniques and has been proven to work!

Andrew K.

I am almost 50 years old and NOT in the best of shape! But...these folks are fantastic! Today was my first training session. Excellent instruction. Excellent camaraderie. I am very glad I signed up.

Blake A

I have been enrolled for a little over a month now and I love it. This is one of my favorite things to do. The learning environment is very calm and the instruction is great. I would recommend this to anyone if you want to do it do it you will not regret it

Brendan J

My kids wanted to sign up for BJJ lessons so we went in to talk the folks at Gracie Barra. My wife and I were so impressed with Professor Mike and Professor Jake, that I signed up the entire family. We have been here for almost two years now and wouldn't want to go anywhere else. It truly is a family atmosphere and the staff at GB really care about you and your kids.

Wayne T

Gracie Barra has the best learning atmosphere of any dojo I've been to. Very family friendly while creating a learning environment with a structured curriculum with teachers and students who all want to see you improve, I would recommend it to anyone. So far it has been a fantastic experience and I can't wait to keep learning.

Steve O

I love the school and all it has to offer. Professor Jake is AMAZING with the kids and we are so thankful to have him training our daughter.
