Garra Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Academy was created by Eduardo Dias. It is the first full time traditional Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Academy in Brisbane to have a world class Brazilian Black Belt as an instructor.
Garra is also honored to the first and only affiliated school with the Roger Gracie Academy in Australia. Roger Gracie is the most decorated Gracie of all times and the only person in the world to win the most famous and prestige BJJ World Championships 14 times.
The word Garra in Portuguese encompasses the attributes of focus, drive, attitude and talent. The capacity to overcome difficult situations, which embodies the philosophy our gym.
We are however much more than just a gym, we are a family that trains hard in the pursuit of perfection and to achieve our goals but with a continued focus on promoting a fun & friendly atmosphere. Come in for a free trial class and experience the difference.
“At Garra BJJ there are various different types of Jiu Jitsu students. There are those who love competition and there are others that train for other reasons like weight loss, exercise and character development. Jiu-jitsu helps develops confidence and social skills. I respect and support any reason to train and encourage people to help each other during the classes. No one can win a fight without partners that help to go overcome our limits.” Eduardo Dias
