Best Martial Arts Studio

Gracie Jiu-Jitsu

Fourth-degree Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt Eduardo Rocha brings this popular martial art to the East Bay at Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. The combat sport, which first came about in the 1880s, uses grappling and ground fighting with plenty of chokeholds as a form of self-defense. All of these various techniques give participants a workout that focuses on endurance and strength as well as concentration and planning various moves in advance. At Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, you'll get thorough instruction from Rocha, who makes sure that no student is left behind during instruction. The studio has blue padding on the walls in case of major slamming, and various hanging flags add color and decoration to the space. Offering classes for students of all levels, including beginning, advanced, kids, and for women, Gracie Jiu-Jitsu makes Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu accessible for everyone, even if it's their first time stepping on the mat.
