Starting as a 51 year old white belt can be a little intimidating, but after participating in the first class I was sold. The staff do a fantastic job of building a positive environment, and unlike many other gyms, egos are left at the door. There are “gorillas” in the gym, but everyone there (especially the gorillas) work hard to develop effective and fun training while keeping things in a controlled and safe framework. The staff is brilliant and very talented and the students are second to none.
This has been a second home for the past 6 months for myself and two youngest children. Ray is an outstanding teacher but an even better man. This truly is a family atmosphere. We have made several lifelong friends in a short amount of time. Looking forward to continuing this journey.
wonderful place filled with awesome down to earth people. I am thankful for Rain and professor Ray for bringing Gracie Barra to Boise. GB Boise has become like a second family to me and it's exciting and encouraging to see the lives GB Boise has touched in just a short time.
100% agree with every one of the above reviews. I've been looking to sign my son and myself up for a while. I'd heard Gracie Barra had opened so we went down to check it out. From the moment we walked in, we were treated like friends. Professor Ray is an exemplary professional. He will teach and test you, but you will love it because you will grow and learn. All of the coaches there are patient and exude their passion for the discipline. It's been nothing but amazing. We will be signing up full time this week and plan to train there for a long, long time. If you are interested in learning about BJJ, come down and check them out. You won't regret it.
This is a great place to train. The atmosphere is amazing, a very supportive and engaging group of people. The instruction is second to none. I have had the luxury of training in multiple states, professor Ray's attention to detail and explanation of techniques being taught is solid and clear. Instructor and coaches are extremely helpful and approachable. Can't wait to sign my little girl up when she is a tad older. Overall a great place. Worth a visit for sure.
