About Us

  • Discipline
  • Healthier Lifestyle
  • Improve Self-Esteem
  • Self Defense

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art and combat sport and a form of self defense that focuses on grappling and ground fighting. It promotes the principle that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend his or herself against a bigger, stronger assailant using leverage and proper technique.

If you avoid the story-tellers and the opinions of Internet Keyboard warriors, any Professional Bouncer or Law Enforcement Officer will attest to the likelihood of a fight ending up on the ground; with all opinions aside, the statistical fact is that most fights end up on the ground. Although it is not (always) in a fighter’s best interest to go to the ground in all situations, the chances of being put there (even against your will) are very high. Considering these facts, it would be unwise to ignore ground fighting techniques.

We are conveniently located near major streets and highways, on the intersection of Highway 92 and Bells Ferry, with plenty of parking space for you, your friends and your family.  We are also neighboors to Superior Fitness, a 24,000 sq ft gym, that offer their and our members FREE childcare, giving you and your family a whole body work out.

Gracie Barra Georgia is the very first GB Premium School to come to Georgia, under the ownership of Gracie Barra Regional Director, pioneer 3rd degree Black Belt Professor Fabio Costa along with his wife, 2nd degree Brown Belt, Coach Marcinha.  GBGA is very proud and honored to state that we follow ALL that Master Carlos Gracie Jr has implemented within the Association, and ensure that every single person that is called a Coach in our academy have been certified in GB ICP (Instructors Certification Platform) for every year implemented.

Professor Fabio has promoted close to 50 Black Belts in his 11 years of being a Black Belt (doing BJJ for over 20 years).  Professor Fabio Costa was involved in the education and supervision of the VERY FIRST GRACIE BARRA PREMIUM SCHOOL in the world, in Santa Ana, California.  Professor Fabio is a very active Brazilian Jiu Jitsu competitor with countless titles under his name, including just in 2015 8 IBJJF medals, 2 being silver and bronze in the very prestigious IBJJF Pan Ams.  Professor Fabio is a veteran fighter in MMA, and trained many top athletes, including Rampage Jackson for his UFC fight.

We travel worldwide as well as network with worldwide GB athletes to bring our students top level modern Jiu Jitsu either through seminars, workshops or ourselves bringing home the newest and latest from competitions and competition camps.

If you are looking for a place where Jiu Jitsu is for Everyone, look no further, we have space for your 3 year old that needs to learn coordination, your 5 year old that is starting to learn their boundaries, your 9 year old that have a lot of energy to spare, your teenager that is looking to be an active competitor in sport,  your wife that wants to learn self defense and learn with the highest belt GB female in Georgia, yourself that just wants to have a better work out than going to the gym or clear you mind of work stress, or that single college young adult that wants to be active in every competition worldwide.  If you are a UFC fan, this will give you a good taste of reality.
