Welcome to Gracie Barra Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Newmarket!

Find out what we’re all about, what makes us who we are, where we are, and how to join a community like no other.

Integrity, Brotherhood, Development

In a lifetime dedicated to the growth and development of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Gracie Barra founder Master Carlos Gracie Jr. has always guided his efforts and actions by the values of integrity, brotherhood and development. Simply stated by himself:

“My life is dedicated to Jiu-Jitsu. My goal was simply to build a brotherhood to lead the expansion of Jiu-Jitsu while respecting the essence of our art. My students are an extension of my family. I want each one of them to achieve their personal best while helping spread Jiu-Jitsu. We must do that honoring the traditions and efforts of those who came before us.” – Carlos Gracie Jr.


Our team colour is red, our team flag is the Red Shield. The Red Shield connects the Gracie Barra community.

“I want red because it represents heart, blood, and love; All my students fight with heart, have GB Jiu-Jitsu in their blood, and they love our team… Gracie Barra!” – Master Carlos Gracie Jr.

The Red Shield stands for respect, brotherhood, friendship, loyalty and love for the GB Team.
