Gracie Barra Georgia


My training right now is the GB Fundamentals program.  This being my third week training I have been able to make to the school 4 times a week. Any free evening or morning I get I feel the urge to go! I don’t have previous experience with other gyms to base my feelings toward their curriculum nor would I jump to make any judgement. All I can say is I am really enjoying it. It’s a very rewarding feeling to be struggling with a particular movement or have difficulty grasping a technique and then see it corrected later in the week. By the third or fourth class, based only on my experience with that curriculum for the week I notice the improvements. Several of the guys who train have told me come at least 2-3 times a week to see progression. In response I would as how often they trained when they first got started. Most of them said they were in there about every day!

My eagerness to train has only been climbing up. The atmosphere at Gracie Barra Georgia makes it really attractive to come in and train. It is mentioned often to have respect for your partner. The higher belts have been very helpful in class which has been a relief. My preconceived notions as to how the higher belts would be like in this school was off base. There isn’t much more for me to say on it this week. I will be getting a confirmation from my Professor to see if I can be a little more specific with what techniques we learn for the week. Until then I will continue to adjust everything else around my training. Not that I am neglecting my obligations outside of GB, but it seems easier to get through them because I am anticipating making it to the next class. When I mentioned this to a purple belt in class Saturday he looked at me and said “That’s a good thing.”
