Parent Testimonials

With a 4.9 rating, with reviews spanning over half a decade, we have dozens of parents who cannot say enough good things about what we have to offer and the positive impact we’ve made in their child’s development.

We found jiu jitsu for our boys when they were 5 years old. It is an amazing sport and art that has developed great confidence, discipline, respect, self defense, fitness, teamwork, work ethic, integrity and more. We have since traveled and trained at gyms everywhere. We were very impressed with the family atmosphere at Gracie Barra Henderson. The technique is excellent and taught in a safe and welcoming environment. The school has very large and clean mat space for training. I would highly recommend training jiu jitsu for all ages and you would be very lucky to find such a great school in Gracie Barra Henderson.
