World Class Instructors

Our Professors and Coaches compete often to battle-test and put the techniques to work on the big mats

What We Do

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is known as the "gentle art." It encourages students to use their opponents’ own power against them as opposed to using sheer brute force. The goal of a match is not to disable your opponent, but simply to have them submit (tap out). This results in fewer injuries than other types of martial arts and allows students to develop their skills to perfection. You do not need to be the larger or stronger person in order to win a match – instead, the person with better technique finds victory at our school.

Our membership structure include:
• GB¹ (Fundamentals) - Little Champs/Kids & Adult Fundamentals (Two classes per Week)
• GB² (Advanced) - Kids/Adults & Unlimited BJJ Gi/No-Gi
• GB³ (Black Belt) - Unlimited BJJ Gi/No-Gi, Kickboxing, MMA, Competition Team & Specialty Classes
• Private training

Your First Class

Your first class can be scheduled online, over the phone or as a walk-in. Simply arrive about 15 minutes early, so we have enough time to get you checked in and complete the necessary paperwork. While we may get you fitted for a loaner gi to wear during your first class, we also recommend that you wear dark, athletic clothing and sandals. We recommend for you to bring water. Lastly, we encourage that all new students bring an open mind and willingness to learn. As they saying goes, you can’t fill a teacup that is already full!

Your first class will help you learn the basics. You can expect to leave having learned the ground layer to jiu jitsu; how to bow onto the mat, where to line up during class, and how to properly do the warm-ups and how to train safely during the class itself. Our instructors will guide you through the process so you can become part of our BJJ family.

There is a saying in the Jiu Jitsu Community: "a black belt is a white belt who never gave up." Our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu students come from all over Southern California, from Newport Beach and Irvine to Huntington Beach and Santa Ana because they know that Gracie Barra is the best at Brazilian Jiu Jitsu instruction.

    Great Professors & Coaches

    Phong T, Yelp Review

    "We felt welcome the very first day as visitors from another jiu jitsu school. We, then, decided to join for obvious reasons. Great professors and coaches, good training partners, and a family friendly atmosphere. Adults and kids can train with Gi and No-Gi. We like that our kids can train everyday."

    Definitely Worth A Call

    Justin F, Yelp Review

    "Professor Scott, Patrick and the rest of the staff are awesome people. They work really well with the kids and I highly recommend this Jiu-Jitsu school if you're looking for some excellent self-defense classes in Orange County regardless of age, gender or experience. Definitely worth a call and meeting them for yourself!"

  • Trained On 2 Continents

    Ray B, Google Review

    "I'm very new to BJJ but have been blessed to have trained on 2 continents with guys/gals from US, UK, China, Japan, Korea and Sweden. I feel more blessed to have found GB Costa Mesa! Amazing folks to train with, grind with and laugh with after a hard session. I appreciate all my partners and would recommend not only BJJ to everyone, but BJJ at GB Costa Mesa. Go Train."

    "Before choosing this school, I tried out others in the area. The big deciding factor was my interaction with the people. It feels like you were walking into a family environment. Professor Scott and his team are great! Everyone helps out to make each other better. I am proud to call this my school."
