Red Shield Founders and inauguration

The very first 50 students who signed up for Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes at Gracie Barra Riverton will receive the title of Red Shield Founders and enjoy some special benefits. From the beginning, the school will offer Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes for kids and adults, followed by women’s only BJJ and self-defense classes.

What is Brazilian Jiu Jitsu?

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is by far the best martial art for self defense purposes. Based on leverage, Jiu-Jitsu teaches grappling techniques to obtain control over an opponent or aggressor. The “Gentle Art” focuses on immobilizing and applying submissions by attacking the joints and neck.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu teaches a wide variety of techniques. Often compared to a game of human chess, BJJ will require you to utilize your entire body as well as your mind to gain dominance over your training partners. No matter your level there, is always something new to learn. It is a sport that pushes creativity and strategy.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu lifestyle

Jiu-Jitsu practitioners are known to seek healthy habits. Everything, from diet to activity level will see improvement once you begin your jiu-jitsu journey. Everything done off the mat affects performance on the mat, and successful students naturally gravitate toward a healthier way of life.

Also, brotherhood is a Gracie Barra core value. You will join a community of like-minded individuals who uplift and push you to be better. Friends made on the mat lead to great friends off the mat, too.

We are not a fight club. We are a school that seeks to offer the best jiu jitsu in Utah, in order to provide an amazing experience for our members.

Gracie Barra is like a big family, open to people of all ages and backgrounds!

This school is amazing. I’ve studied jiu jitsu for several years and have been to many schools. The people here are truly passionate about the art, and more importantly, about their people. Would highly recommend.

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.
let's meet each other
