Gracie Barra Clearwater was among the first Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu schools in the Tampa Bay Area and has been training students in the gentle art since 1999. We offer a safe, family-oriented environment where people from all walks of life can come together and learn the skills they need to feel more confident and capable, not just on the mats, but in many facets of their lives.
Gracie Barra Clearwater’s classes are aligned with the Gracie Barra Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Program Structure developed by Master Carlos Gracie Jr. The program is designed to meet the training needs of people of all ages, genders, and levels so that everyone can find success on the mat.
Our school is a place for people who value discipline, respect, and teamwork and who wish to boost their confidence and sense of self -worth while learning the most effective martial art in the world.

Well managed & top-notch instructors!!! A comfortable place to train whether you're just starting out as a white belt, looking for new challenges, health & wellness, or to compete in BJJ tournaments. Even a great place to make friends!! Ju Jitzu for everybody!

Great academy with awesome instructors and Professor Eduardo De Lima (4th degree blackbelt under Carlos Gracie Jr), who is the head instructor, is as much a positive lifestyle guru as he is teacher.
The school has now moved to 1088 Kapp Dr (near Hercules and Palmetto) and is better than ever! Come try it for free!

Well the instructer was very nice , I have trained in bjj for 13 years and have trained all over and this school is by far the best school I have ever trained at..
