Welcome to Gracie Barra Westchase
Founded in 2010 by Ulpiano Malachias, third degree black belt, Gracie Barra Westchase is part of the Gracie Barra Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Team, which includes more than 500 schools on six continents, making it the largest Brazilian Jiu Jitsu team on the planet.
Gracie Barra Westchase was one of the very first franchised locations in the U.S, and it is one of the top GB locations in the United States, home to 450+ members of all ages and skill levels. Open 7 days a week, we offer over 50 group classes per week with highly trained instructors who are also decorated competitors in their sports. Our programs and classes provide ever-evolving teaching and support to our membership in an effort to help develop students, so they can reach their personal goals, whatever they may be - competition, training as a hobby, improving athleticism and health - all while learning the martial art discipline.
When Gracie Barra Westchase first opened in Houston, we only offered classes in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu; but now we have a lot more. We offer multiple weekly classes for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Cardio Kickboxing, Muay Thai, and Wrestling. Every Brazilian Jiu Jitsu class at GBW is conducted by one or more IBJJF certified black belt instructors, who are continually educated in the most effective teaching and competition techniques for the sport.
We currently run a 5,200 square foot facility at 9099 Westheimer Road, and we are very excited to be moving to a new 10,000 square foot, state of the art location this summer, where we will take our passion for martial arts to the next level. Our expansion will allow us to offer more classes, equipment, and training resources for our student base as well as full men’s and women’s locker rooms for our students convenience.
