"Excellent atmosphere. Professors and students alike help each other to learn. Extensive classes to accommodate any schedule. Owner Rodrigo Carvalho Silva is down to earth, and his facility offers a massive deal for the money. You won't find a more well rounded positive experience anywhere. Gracie Barra has the rep, the quality, and the networking for personal development, self protection, and competition opportunities."
"Wonderful team dynamic. In looking for a place to train BJJ, I wanted to find a place which not only develops individual skills in the sport, but also emphasizes the importance of the team. Gracie Barra is without question the only BJJ-specific training gym in Vancouver which delivers this."
"The best and friendliest environment to learn self-defence and to get in shape. I love this place!"
