Gracie-288x300Jiu Jitsu is one of the fastest growing sports in the nation. Evolution Health &Fitness has teamed up with Gracie Barra and offers the highest caliber Jiu Jitsu instruction in the area with several curriculums ranging from fundamentals to advanced techniques.



To excel in any endeavor, individuals need to have a strong set of values and a solid character that gives them perseverance to achieve his or her goals. The Gracie Barra Children’s Program was created to provide children ages 3-15 with an environment that allows them to experience and understand core values like focus, discipline, persistence, cooperation and respect.

As a contact sport, Gracie Barra Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu provides a very challenging yet safe and caring environment for a child to mature towards a real life champion on and off the mats. The outcome of continued childhood practice of GB BJJ goes far beyond the accomplishments on the mats. The discipline and excellence demanded by our instructors often carries over to the child’s behavior at home and at school.

The first time you come to our school you will be welcomed by our staff. Please arrive 15 minutes before class so you and your children have enough time to prepare for practice. The class will start on time and your child will be asked to walk to the training area where the instructor will be waiting for him or her. One of the assistant instructors or a senior student will be assigned as a helper to assist your child in performing the drills and activities. Parents are encouraged to stay and watch the entire practice.

Once you’ve attended several classes and are familiar with positions, you may begin to “situational spar.” This keeps everything under control and not allowing for uncontrollable “scrambles.” Once you feel comfortable with these situational sparring sessions, you may advance to regular sparring. This is done at the individual’s pace.
