This was my family’s first intro to BJJ and now I’m hooked as much as my 7 year old is. The kids classes are a fun and friendly environment at all times. The instructors are very warm and supportive, but firm and the kids learn what’s expected very quickly, and they have fun! They spend a little time each lesson on self-defense as well as practicing techniques and training for sport. Unlike other martial arts classes for kids your kids will be sparring from day one. This makes the training much more practical and allows them to challenge their limits and I think it’s more fun for them too. As an beginner adult (40+) I can also say the adult classes are just as supportive and safe, the culture at this school is all about working together in training to make each other better. It may seem counterintuitive with an activity that is so clearly physical combat, but training at GB Deerfield never feels intimidating or even violent. We work hard and as part of the sport we cause pain sometimes, but the culture is always one of safety, mutual respect, and self-control. I highly recommend checking out this school and BJJ.

I've started at Gracie Barra on Lincoln in Chicago back in 06'ish or 07. I've moved to Round Lake and tried other BJJ academies. When I've found out GB was in Deerfield, it was an easy decision to come back. Gracie Barra is truly Jiu Jitsu for Everyone! They ensure you're in a safe and practical environment with the softest mats I've felt to date! Very important especially if you're over 40 ;-) ALL of the coaches are VERY technical and always practice safety concepts for you and your drilling partner at all times. This will help ensure your longevity, and keep it fun and exciting for others that love BJJ and wants to stay healthy for the long run! All around, great classes, great teachers, Professor Marcelo Sauza is THE MAN - THE MYTH - THE LEGEND - And my friend who has been practicing BJJ with the man himself, Master Carlos Gracie Jr. There's no comparison; his attitude, his always happy demeanor is always inviting, especially for those who come to train after a long day of work/life. We all look forward to talking and laughing with him. Overall, I love it at GB Deerfield. If it's always on your mind, then that's the place to be, guaranteed!!!!!

This place is fantastic! The coaches are nice, knowledgeable, and extremely helpful. The students go the extra step to make sure that everyone feels welcome at the gym, regardless of his level of experience.
