The Gracie Barra Kids 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.
The Gracie Barra Mens Program teaches the best self defence skills and also the students will 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.
The Gracie Barra Women’s Program combines a comprehensive self-defense curriculum with emphasis on drills that simulate realistic attack and escape situations.

I have a chance to travel all over the world and train in many GB Schools. Gracie Barra Sydney with Prof. Marcelo and his team is top notch. What an incredible welcoming and positive atmosphere, for kids and adults and at the same time incredibly technical training sessions. I definitely got my body, mind and heart worked here!
I've been training at Gracie Barra in Brookvale for more than 2 years now and love it!! It is my first experience in martial arts and the staff made it so easy that now i am very proud to represent the team in competitions whenever i can. Coaches are so great with kids, I can't wait to give mine a try next september!
Coaches are really nice and friendly. Gym is super clean and welcoming. Really good place for women :)

Gracie Barra Sydney is a world class jiu jitsu gym. Professor Marcelo and all of the team there do an amazing job teaching jiu jitsu for everyone in a safe, welcoming and friendly environment.
There are a large number of students to train with, whether fundamentals or advanced classes, sparring or the regular competition training sessions with high level GB competitors.
Gracie Barra Sydney has made such a positive impact on my life and I’m fortunate to have found this gym. I have made many friends here. I would highly recommend Gracie Barra Sydney to anyone. I was hesitant to try jiu jitsu at first, but now couldn’t imagine a life without training at Gracie Barra Sydney
I started training at GB Sydney in 2012, and have never looked back. It’s the only hobby/sport I have done that has turned into a lifestyle I am passionate about. I really think my love and enjoyment for bjj has to do with how it is taught and passed down to me and the encouraging culture at Gracie Barra. Marcelo is a dynamic and welcoming teacher and that’s the vibe in the whole gym. As a female, I love the confidence I’ve gained from learning self-defense here and seeing women of all ages and walks of life loving bjj as well. As someone not living in my home country, I love having GB Sydney as my family and home in Australia. If you’re scared to try something that’s out of your comfort zone ….. give yourself the chance and try a class. Everyone there will tell you they remember taking that first step as well. :) :) :)
A great place where I do like to be and spend at least 4 days per week training. With and amazing environment be a part of GB team changed completely my life for good! Awesome coachs and authentic method of teache, make the class much more interesting and pleasurable!
I've been training at Gracie barra Sydney for 7 years and every year the school just gets better.Professor Marcelo Rezende and his structors are always bringing the best positive energy to training sessions.No matter your level you aways feel welcomed from everyone. Definitely the best school in Australia.If you have kids I highly recommend to the little ones!!!!
I have been training martial arts for over than twenty years, but bjj I just started one and a half years ago. Since the first day I loved, it doesn't matter if you want to be a competitor, if you want to lose weight or if you just want to make friends, have fun and pratice one sport, gracie barra is the place.
The facilities are great and the coaches are very attentive and focused to pass the knowledge.
I really recommend.
Gracie Barra Sydney is a unique place. To me it's more then just a martial arts school, it's my second home. Since my first day at GB Sydney everyone has treated me like family and I'm lucky to have so many great people around me on a daily basis pushing me to reach my goals. You will find everything you need here from modern facility, world class curriculum based instruction, great staff members and much more. The level of instruction from professor Marcelo is world class, his ability to break down techniques for sport and self defence Jiu-Jitsu are second to none but his greatest assets are his caring nature and drive to bring out the best in his students no matter what their goals may be. Whether it's to get fit again, learn self-defence, competition or even just to make friends I wouldn't look any further then this awesome place. Take the first step in this amazing journey and let Jiu-Jitsu change your life for the better like it did mine. OSS!
“The first feeling I had after (the competition) this morning was the warmth of gratefulness and pride that comes from being part of Gracie Barra. I know there was a time in my life when I didn’t do jiu jitsu, but now I can’t fathom life without it. Thank you for your support, your knowledge, friendship, putting up with minor meltdowns before comp, making me laugh, making sure I don’t die, challenging me constantly, being all-around amazing and giving me more than I could have ever expected from a sport.”
“Marcelo has been a pioneer in grappling sports in Australia. I first engaged him at the Brumbies in 2004, and he quickly developed a syllabus of grappling drills that were specific to rugby from both a technical and condition perspective. Furthermore, when at the Wallabies in 2005-2007 I sent many players to him for individual and small group training. Without exception, the players love his sessions and appreciate the value for specific game preparation. Eight years on, I still seek to update my knowledge with Marcelo. He is the best grappling coach I have worked with.”
“Marcelo has been fantastic in helping us design our contact skill and conditioning programs for the 2012/2013 pre-season and season. His technical skill and coaching ability set him apart from other coaches. He has a long history with the Brumbies conditioning team”
Such an amazing, welcoming, safe and friendly facility with world class instruction and a real family atmosphere - regardless of if you are someone training to get fit, have fun or compete.
The Instructors and staff always welcome you with a genuine and happy smile, are willing to share their knowledge and the training can be at your own pace or push you out of your comfort zone depending on your individual goals.
Im proud to train here and recommend GB Sydney to everyone I meet
Highly recommend this place. I started jiu-jitsu 3 years ago and never regretted my choice. Gracie Barra is much more than a jiu-jitsu school, the philosophy reaches well-being in different aspects of life especially developing a stronger body and mind. Professors and coaches are amazing, they are always supporting the students and keeping everybody motivated. As a woman I can say that’s the best place to train jiu-jitsu, full of respect and friendly environment. It’s truly jiu-jitsu for everyone!
Amazing academy to learn jiu jitsu. Great people and amazing coaches.
Brilliant, welcoming team. Knowledgeable and friendly instructors.
Amazing school. Very friendly and welcoming. Lots of black belts helping the new students. Definitely recommend this place if you are interested in Jiu-Jitsu.
Best place to train.
Friendly and helpful staff with world class instructors. GB is the number 1 Jiu-Jitsu team in the world so why train anywhere else!
GB Sydney is THE premium Jiu-Jitsu school in Australia and offer a warm, friendly and safe environment and atmosphere for all practitioners. Highly recommended facilities, coaches and syllabus - go try them, you won't be disappointed.
GB Sydney was my very first experience with BJJ, and it forever provided the benchmark for all other schools (including my own) to live up to. It was at GB Sydney that I learned not only the best quality technique, but it exudes the values of personal growth, integrity and brotherhood. It teaches that we are part of something great, something very special and collectively as a group we can go far together.
Gracie Barra Sydney is the best place to learn the real Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. If you want to learn from the source and develop skills for life - this is the place to be. They have an incredible KIDS and ADULTS program and the staff that work at GB Sydney is amazing - very helpful and always willing to help. This is also the best place for competitors - they run competition trainings every month and you get to train with the best martial artists in Australia, which pushes your level up - Thanks for everything you do for the team guys!
The best thing we ever did for our daughter. Her personal development has shot up so much. She is a confident strong fit athletic girl now with more potential in life than ever. The instructors are amazing. The Jiu Jitsu quality is highest level. What happens here lives in us forever! We love what GB has done for our lives.
Gracie Barra Sydney provides a world class training program taught by able, competent, and seasoned instructors... as an older student, my thanks for and a shout out to the "masters," an older band of brothers who roll hard and with humility! With thanks to Professor Marcelo and his excellent team :)
My two sons have been training with the team at Gracie Barra Sydney for just over two years now and I can honestly say it's not just an amazing place to learn Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. but it's a great family to be a part of, full of teachers that really care about their students and the life skills that come with learning Gracie Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. The team at GB Sydney have a great attitude which mixes fun with competition and drive, and some of the best competition trainings for kids I've ever seen. They're amazing people and we're lucky to be a part of the Gracie Barra family and my sons never want to miss a training session!
One of a kind coaching staff at GB Sydney, do your self a favour, let your family become part of the GB family.
This is a truly special place. Professor Marcelo and all of the Professors and Coaches are high level and know how to coach and bring out the best of you no matter what your level, age or goals. We have seen our children grow on the mats and have been so happy to have them with the GB team as role models. The BJJ standard is so high and the school and all of the students on the mat always push you forward mentally and physically. What is truly special is the culture at GB - super positive, high standards and a real family that make you welcome. 🤙🤙🤙🤘🤘🤘👊👊👊
Great BJJ school with very professional professors and staff. Family friendly with a awesome structure. Highly recommend.
What a great place to learn Jiu Jitsu. Super clean and friendly place, high level instructions. Highly recommended!

Started here recently for fitness reasons, and can't recommend more. Only been twice so far but both times have been amazing. The staff are super friendly and the student crowd are just as good. Facilities super clean and free parking is a bonus, but it's also 5 minutes from the main road so super accessible! Even as someone with zero experience in any combat sport I feel I have fit in really well and can't wait to get back on the mat. Thanks team!
My Daughter and I both train at Gracie Barra and we absolutely love it. My Daughter started in July last year and I soon followed her a few months later after attending the women’s self defense class’s in November. I have gone from training twice a week to 5 / 6 times a week as my love for BJJ grows more and more. All the staff including coaches and professors are just awesome! We are so stoked to be part of such an amazing team OSS 🙌🏽
Top level Jiu jitsu and everyone is so friendly and welcoming! Great learning environment.
Highly recommend this gym, it has to be the best in Sydney by far!
An amazing school. My 6 year old son has been going to Gracie Barra school in Brookvale for the last 6 months and I've been so impressed with all the great people who run the school..as a result I have also signed up and it's been a real positive experience.
Gracie Barra Sydney is the birthplace of GB Australia and the HQ for all GB gyms across Australia. The Black Belt Professors and Coaches there are absolutely amazing and lead by example of what martial arts coaching, instruction and tuition should be! If you are ever in the area you should make time and visit! It will change your life
Great school to learn the art of Brazilian Ju Jitsu. Positive atmosphere supported by the great coaching staff. Regret I didnt do it earlier.
Our daughter (5 year old) has been attending Gracie Barra (Brookvale) for 18 months and thoroughly loves it. The coaches and staff live their passion and it shows in every interaction I’ve had with them. The ethos and values at the core of GB schools is literally helping us to raise a respectful, kind, happy girl.
