"Wonderful team dynamic. In looking for a place to train BJJ, I wanted to find a place which not only develops individual skills in the sport, but also emphasizes the importance of the team. Gracie Barra is without question the only BJJ-specific training gym in Vancouver which delivers this."
"The best and friendliest environment to learn self-defence and to get in shape. I love this place!"
"Excellent atmosphere. Professors and students alike help each other to learn. Extensive classes to accommodate any schedule. Owner Rodrigo Carvalho Silva is down to earth, and his facility offers a massive deal for the money. You won't find a more well rounded positive experience anywhere. Gracie Barra has the rep, the quality, and the networking for personal development, self protection, and competition opportunities."
"GB Vancouver is deserved five stars! The best martial arts studio in Vancouver!
