Come train at the BJJ school Gracie Barra Groningen (GBG). We are the only official Gracie Barra in Groningen. Affiliated with one of the largest and best performing teams in the world Gracie Barra. The academy is under supervision from Professor Andre Nunes, multiple (4x) European Champion in black belt and 2nd degree black belt. Andre has also schools in Germany (Hamburg and Hannover), Spain (Sevilla) and Ukraine (Kiev, Sevastopol).
You can train brazilian jiu jitsu (bjj) at our club for fun or competition. There are 4 regular classes per week, 1 open mat and almost daily (invite only) training with the competition team. Besides training in the gi (the bjj suit), we also offer classes in no-gi, submission grappling. These classes are also really suitable for MMA practitioners.
"Ju Jitsu teaches me to leave whatever issues I have off the mat when I come in, to give all I have and then some, and to respect my training partners for the sacrifices they make to allow me improve myself. And that's only a small part. I don't know where this road will lead, but so far - I am digging it."Mustapha Abdu-Aguye | White belt | PhD Candidate
"I've been training at GBG for 2 years now and I really love it. It's a great way to stay in shape and also learn some self defense. Having jiu jitsu as a way to blow off steam has allowed me to better deal with the everyday stress of having a busy job and family life. The camaraderie and atmosphere at GBG motivates me to go to a training even when I'm feeling tired or don't feel like it. After rolling on the mat with friends I always feel better than I did before the training. BJJ is the best anti-depressant around! Haha"Jason Pahl | Blue belt | Chiropractor
