martial arts school

My 11 year old child's been attending for a few years now. Absolutely adores it! Carlos runs the best studio; he creates a very warm and friendly environment. Kind, soft spoken and gentle with his students. I can't recommend it enough!!

martial arts school

My 12 year old son has been taking jiu-jitsu classes for around 3 years now. His confidence, discipline, and self esteem have all increased. I've been in the program for about three years as well, and am immensely grateful for Carlos' patience and help. He keeps classes fun, meaningful, and full of useful information.

martial arts school

It was cool to train jiu jitsu here with the other students. I learned how to stand after being on the floor so it's not easy to be knocked down again among other things. It's nicely located near trader joes as well so you can get a snack or juice as well after training.

Why Huntington Beach Communities Love Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Martial Arts School.

Kimberly Braun recommends Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Huntington Beach

Our son started the Gracie Bullyproof program in early February and he loves it. It's really cool to see his confidence grow. He's become more social in Jiu-jitsu class as well as outside of the program. He's also become more respectful and mature, even just in this short time. We can't say enough good things about the coaches, they are all wonderful, and the kids just adore them. We highly recommend Gracie Jiu-jitsu HB - we couldn't be happier!

I have been training here for several years and cannot recommend it enough. Carlos is an excellent instructor who can work with folks of all ages and all focus types. From children to adults, from hobbyists to serious practitioners. I drive to Huntington Beach specifically train at this gym despite the fact that there are many other gyms and affiliations that are more convenient for my schedule.

Michael C. recommends Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Huntington Beach

Master Carlos and his staff have been such amazing instructors with my son. They are patient, knowledgeable, practice humility and have a good sense of humor with the kids. I've been around MANY coaches and instructors growing up, as I've wrestled for our high school, taken judo, and aikido, and Master Carlos and his staff are some of the best I've ever been around. You will not be disappointed with having your children train here. The only reason we could not continue was due to some time conflicts with swimming, and the fact that we live on the far side of FV, so it takes some time to get down to the dojo. I look forward to taking my son back (he still asks about it) when the time is right.

I’ve spent the last year plus working out with Carlos and his crew. He has welcomed my teenagers into the program and worked with the three of us at our individual levels. He’s a great teacher and I’m still going 3x/week for personal growth and self-defense.
