Jiu-Jitsu for Everyone

About Us

Welcome to Gracie Barra Spring Lake, and thank you for joining us in our training. Train hard is the keyword that I hope you as a student or parent get from this welcome note.

There are many reasons to train in a martial art. In addition to the confidence and character that develops in studying these ancient disciplines, one of the main benefits is to enhance our ability to protect ourselves in today’s world. Through Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, we enjoy the exploration of movements, attitudes, principles, and training procedures that can protect others and ourselves from harm in times of danger. Our training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu develops courage, power speed, and timing. We also learn that we can overcome many obstacles that may stand before us, and we gain confidence in our ability to act in order to protect life.

We should not, however, be preparing for some theoretical future event. The event is now –The bullying, intimidations, and violence our children can face on a daily basis. I believe we must be prepared to adapt to the circumstances presented in the course of an aggressive encounter. Thus, my approach to training in the martial arts is more practical, following the intent and principles of traditional martial arts while embracing the technical improvements and realities of the present day.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is an opportunity to learn how to overcome conflicts in our lives. As we gain a better understanding of ourselves through our work together on the mat, we find effective means to live in peace. Along the way, however, we learn many techniques that could cause serious harm. As we learn about these devastating skills, we also learn to respect and nurture all life. As our physical arts develop, our skills in resolving the many conflicts of daily life will also develop. I believe that training hard is the key to progressing toward achieving this outcome.

We extend our warmest welcome and support to you. May our relationship be enjoyable, valuable, and filled with pleasant surprises!

See you on the mat, Oss
