My kids have been coming to this gym for about 6 months now. We were at another gracie gym before this one. While we did like the last gym, we love this one for our kids. The instructors are very attentive, and strict, but so kind. I have seen a difference in my kids' behavior since coming here. The gym is always clean and looks and smells nice. I'm always greeted warmly at the front desk. I love that there are color options for the kids to choose for their gi. There is a competition this weekend, and I love how the instructors talked to the kids about having respect at the competition, and to use it as a learning experience and not to be so overly focused on winning. I have recently started their women's self defense class at the Salt Lake location. I see the same great qualities at that gym as well. I was nervous about taking the class, but shouldn't have been. It is so much fun. The instructor is great at teaching each move and having fun while doing it. If you are thinking of having your kids or yourself train, I highly recommend this gym.

TRY THIS GYM!! If you have ever thought about training, this is the place for you. Amazing professors, coaches, staff, and other members. Very clean facility, which is a must-have with contact sports.
Joining Gracie Barra was the best decision of my life, profesor Rodrigo and Dani run the gym amazingly and profesor Carlos Daniel and profesor Eliezer give incredible classes that work for both self defense and sport jiu jitsu. 100% recommended!

We signed up our very active 5 year old and have enjoyed the experience. The instructors for the “tiny champs” are engaging and patient, while also teaching discipline and focus. We look forward to seeing our son grow and learn his moves! Daniela at the front desk is kind and friendly, we are always happy to see her.
