We recommend you arrive 15 minutes before schedule, as the class will start on time. When lining up to begin practice, you’ll notice the instructor has a precise plan for the class. This is standard. The class routine is always similar so you know exactly what to expect during each part of practice; the techniques change, though! You will learn over 100 technique combinations over four months so be ready for the journey! You’ll also find strong support from your peers. By the end of class you’ll be physically tired but mentally exhilarated. Don’t get too exhausted, though–we hope to see you back the next day! Remember, you can train as much as you want.
Advanced BJJ Program
What comes after mastering the fundamentals? What is next on the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu journey?
The Gracie Barra Program Structure defines three main stages of development for students: the Fundamentals Program, the Advanced Program and the Black Belt Program. These stages indicate different maturity levels and students upgrade from one to the other in their own natural progression.
While the Fundamentals Program focuses on the building blocks and basic principles of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, the Advanced Program is built on high-level techniques and drills that start shaping the students game flow through the development of reflexes, speed and reaction time as well as transitions between one technique and another.
After a few months in the GB Advanced Program students typically experience a deeper involvement in GB’s philosophy, a stronger bond with training partners as well as more discipline and commitment to healthy habits that keep them in good shape.
Advanced Program classes are based on a defined class structure and curriculum that take a broad and open-minded approach, incorporating techniques from different grappling styles like wrestling, judo, sambo, and, of course, Gracie Barra Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

Black Belt BJJ Program
Black Belt Program Can someone master Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu? Is there an end to the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu journey?
The Gracie Barra Black Belt Program is the last stage in GB’s adult program structure. While it does represent the student’s arrival at the ultimate level of training in our school, it also represents a new beginning.
The goal of this program is to further develop the student’s BJJ game flow by exposing him or her to cutting edge Jiu-Jitsu techniques and their variations. The program’s dynamic curriculum and classes, followed by hour-long live training sessions, build a challenging yet safe environment for students to progress from their blue to black belts.
It is in the Black Belt Program that most students truly grasp what they’ve been told since being white belts: Jiu-Jitsu is an endless journey of daily accomplishments that always leads to a new challenge. The same old arm-bars, triangle chokes, fireman carries, Kimuras, sweeps, guard passes and single leg take downs gain new meaning as their BJJ game flow is defined.
Gracie Barra students enrolled in the Black Belt Program are role models at our schools. The responsibility of sharing GB techniques and training philosophy with newer students is taken seriously. They play a key role in maintaining a safe, friendly and progress-oriented environment at our school.
There is no losing in Jiu-Jitsu. You either win or you learn. ? Carlos Gracie Jr.
Benefits of Joining our Black Belt Program
- Define your BJJ game flow
- Learn cutting-edge BJJ techniques
- Achieve greater physical fitness
- Train with the best training partners in our school
- Train for two hours straight
- Start developing your teaching skills
- Train at over 100 different locations in United States and 500 worldwide
- When the journey is more important than the destination, you have become a GB Black Belt
When you come to the black belt classes you can be sure of one thing: you will train a lot! Practice typically lasts two hours and although you are welcome to rest or leave early if you feel like it, the instructors will always encourage you to stay until the end of the class. The No Gi class adds an extra element of challenge and helps students improve balance and control, enhancing their overall skills.
