Welcome to the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu website of Gracie Barra Amersfoort in the Netherlands.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is one of the fastest growing martial arts in the world today.
Judo, jiu-jitsu, wrestling, sambo, ground fighting, grappling, and self-defence elements... it's all in the game!
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art that emphasizes the effectiveness of proper technique over strength and prides itself on enabling a smaller, weaker practitioner to use leverage, grip, and position to overcome a bigger and stronger opponent.
BJJ is therefore considered to be one of the most effective martial arts in the world.
We offer classes in BJJ for kids and adults, beginners and advanced at both the recreational and competitive levels, in one of the best gyms in the Netherlands.
All of our ICP6 Certified instructors;
Andrew Houtveen, Michel Kragten and Mike Houtveen are instructing, according the famous 16 weeks curriculum program of Gracie Barra.
Gracie Barra is one of the most widely recognized teams in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, who has by far the most affiliated academies throughout the world, over 700 schools in six continents, and has been #1 at the world top for more than 30 years.
Please come and join us, making our team bigger, better and stronger!
See you on the mat.... !
