This place has decent training. Although there is a good amount of drama in the company between the clients. I recently (more than one month ago) cancelled my membership. This is because they overcharged for a one year membership by two months and I did not get a refund. Even after my cancellation they kept charging the credit card now I need to do a charge back. Another downside is they keep financial information (paper copy of the back and front of your credit card and license) in the front of the building in an unlocked cabinet. I would steer clear from this place there are plenty of good established jujitsu places in town with no shady practices.
We have five children participating in the kids program at St. Louis Park Gracie Barra. They range from five to thirteen years years old.
It is so wonderful to be able to take all of our kids to one class, together. The instructors have been professional and patient with all of our kids.
We wanted an atmosphere that would be inclusive and very family friendly, and we have found it in Gracie Barra. The kids just competed in their first tournament and the display of support from the coaches, other parents and students in the adult classes was so very encouraging. Having an older student pull aside my kids to help them work on grappling before their matches meant the world to my kids and impressed me. I think you will find integrity to be a consistent thread throughout all of the Gracie Barra classes. We are so happy to have found this school and these people!
I did a lot of "shopping around" and this school is, by far, the best. AND, Gracie Barra is the lowest priced BJJ training available! At the other schools I visited the costs were unreasonably high and they expected me to sign a MULTI-YEAR binding contract.
The entire school is super clean, and, the classes are taught by a Brazilian Black Belt from BRAZIL. Authentic Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is being taught here. NOT the dangerous neck-cranks and pain-inflicting moves which the other schools teach. No one was digging their elbows into my eye-socket or legs!!
Gracie Barra Twin Cities is the best place to learn Jiu Jitsu and join a family of competitors who understand the difference between practice and competition. The instructors care about every members personal goals and track your progress. The classes are evolving and the gym offerings are expanding into other Martial Arts disciplines!
You get a free trial, free uniform, and free friends! There's absolutely no reason not to join GB TC!
Professor Rodrigo Sul of Gracie Barra Twin Cities provides a safe and fun atmosphere to learn the exciting martial art Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Regular women's and children's classes demonstrate the academys commitment to their motto "Jiu Jitsu for everyone". Oh, and I got a FREE UNIFORM!
