Gracie Del Mar is a direct affiliate of Gracie Humaita in Brazil. Founded by Grandmaster Helio Gracie, now led by Royler and Rolker Gracie, and brought to Del Mar by the teachings of Black Belt Professor Joao “Johnny” Faria.
At Gracie Del Mar, we empower any student with the necessary tools to achieve your goals, whether they be Physical Fitness, Self-Defense, Recreation, or to become a Champion Competitor.
We seek to train the Mind, Body, and Spirit by teaching the highest level of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu in a safe and positive environment.
I have been training with Professor Faria for a couple of months now. No one should underestimate the power of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. Recently I had a doctors appointment and had some blood work done (Yep, I am one of the ‘older’ students at the school). A few days later my doctor calls me to say that my cholesterol levels are at a 5 year low! He couldn’t believe it. He atributes the amazing drop to my training in Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. I can honestly say that Johnny Faria has saved my life. Professor Faria is the REAL DEAL!
Gracie Del Mar – Great Jiu-Jitsu. Great instructor. Great students. Great school. Who could ask for anything more. I recommend everyone to take that time to check out his school, get to know him and most importantly sign up! Your life may literally depend on it. Now I just need to work on not getting gassed. Oss!
