⏳🥋 Only 2 Weeks Left of No-Gi Fun! 🤼‍♂️

Time flies when you're having a blast on the mats! Just a friendly reminder that we've got only two weeks left of our exciting No-Gi classes before we return to our full Gi schedule starting October 1st. 📅🥋

No-Gi has been an incredible journey, and we've seen our skills soar without the traditional kimono. But don't worry, the Gi brings its own set of challenges and opportunities, and we're excited to embrace them together.

Let's make these final two weeks of No-Gi absolutely memorable! Join us on the mats and let's finish this chapter with a flourish. 🙌🌟


We’re looking forward to our Women’s Hike Day coming up on October 1st at 9:00am!

We invite our ladies to join Professor Ana on a hike around the Claremont Loop and a nice brunch afterwards. 🔺

Looking forward to seeing you there! 💯

At Gracie Barra Upland, we believe that Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu isn't just about what happens on the mats; it's about enhancing every aspect of our lives. 🌐🌟

Whether it's building confidence, learning to stay calm under pressure, or understanding the importance of strategy, No-Gi classes empower us to face challenges head-on, both on and off the mats.

In a world that often emphasizes individualism, the sense of belonging to a team is truly irreplaceable. It's where friendships are forged, challenges are conquered, and dreams are achieved.

Let's continue to celebrate and nurture this incredible Gracie Barra spirit 🔺 that unites us all. Together, we're unstoppable! 🥋🌟 🔺
