Tour the Gracie Barra Alabama Facility
Welcome to Gracie Barra Alabama!
Gracie Barra Alabama is a stand-alone, state-of-the-art training facility with everything you need for a successful martial arts journey. When you arrive (please see our Location and Driving Directions page if you need directions) you'll see the big green Xtreme Sports Fitness sign on the building and the big red Gracie Barra emblem on the glass. You'll know you're in the right place. Scroll down to come inside and look around.
Huge Primary Training Area
As you walk through the door you'll be facing our massive primary training area. With room for 60+ students, you'll have plenty of space for practicing your techniques. And no, that's not a mirror in the back; that's a second training area. We keep the temperature tightly controlled for your comfort, and everything is well-lit. We also take hygiene seriously, and the mats are continuously cleaned and sanitized. Put on your gi and jump in!
Judo, Kickboxing, Kung Fu and More!
A second large training area provides more space for Jiu-Jitsu workshops and seminars, as well as additional classes. Bow in to our next mat for Judo, Muay Thai Kickboxing and Wing Chun Kung Fu. Check our Programs page for details, and the Training Schedule for class times.
Pure Punching Power
If you're on the mats for Kickboxing or Kung Fu, turn around and you're facing The Rack. Outfitted with the highest quality Muay Thai and boxing bags, The Rack lets you work on your striking and kicking power and technique. Whether you're training for MMA, cross-training or simply working on conditioning, this gear will stand up to whatever punishment you can deliver.
PurMotion and Whole Body Conditioning
Elite athletes need advanced conditioning, and Gracie Barra Alabama has the gear you need to reach maximum performance. The centerpiece is our PurMotion station, designed by five-time Olympian Jorge Bonnet. You'll also find plyometric equipment, kettlebells, ropes, speed ladders and everything else you need for ultimate, whole-body conditioning.
Pro Shop, Showers, Kid's Room...
As you walk into Gracie Barra Alabama you'll be met by our friendly staff at the front office, which doubles as our Pro Shop with uniforms, t-shirts, rash guards and everything else you need. If it's not in stock, we can order directly from Gracie Barra Wear for all of the official GB gear. The hallway beside the Pro Shop leads to dressing rooms, showers, our dedicated Kid's Room, the full kitchen and on-site laundry room.
Jiu-Jitsu for Everyone
Yes, the gym is big, bright, clean and stocked with everything you need for the greatest martial arts experience of your life. But a gym is more than equipment. When you walk into Gracie Barra Alabama, you'll also experience the energy that Professor Kaliffa and the team have built here. The giant sign says Jiu-Jitsu for Everyone and we mean it. Everyone is welcome, regardless of age, gender, experience or athletic ability. When you step on the mats, you become part of a team, but more than that, you become part of a family.
