This place is incredible! A class facilities. They have gone above and beyond in creating this. Couldn't ask for a better place to train. Not to mention the head coach, Alex, one of the finest and most knowledgeable bjj coaches I've ever met.

You can learn a lot from the way kids approach a given task or interest. They care very little about how they look, whether they win or lose, whether they succeed or fail in that moment, or the speed of their progression. They simply rip in, have fun, enjoy the process of learning and growth, and allow that journey to lead to success naturally. I couldn't be prouder of this little man and how much he is loving his Jiu Jitsu journey... he loves every minute of his training and the Gracie culture. Obviously, this culture wouldn't be possible without the endless patience and dedication of his amazing coaches. The investment of their time, knowledge and live for the art does not go unnoticed.

I'm beyond grateful that my son gets to be part of Gracie. The best place for kids to be. Teaches them discipline, respect & self control. Thank you so much for creating one of the most amazing gym cultures I have ever come across. My son loves it so much and is learning a lot.

Since joining Gracie Smeaton Grange early 2016 you have all been incredibly warm and inclusive. Your input in Conor's development not just in this art but as a true martial artist and a young man can not be measured and for this in am sincerely grateful. I expect Conor's development will be further enhanced with his planned participation in grappling and your guidance there in.

An amazing sports institute that promotes health and well being and you will find consistent support and transparency from the coaches. Once you start you can see why its growing, I recommend it for fitness, weight loss and self defence, everyone is involved in the atmosphere so you will easily fit in and gain support from members.

This place makes you feel so welcomed. There are no egos here and everyone is willing to help. The coaches are amazing at teaching and are approachable. The classes I think are suitable for everyone, from a beginner (Like myself) to people who have been fighting for years. If you ever wanted to try BJJ/ Wrestling, I highly recommend you try this place.

The coches are good and professional about what they are teaching and doing and the techniques they teach are very good. They motivate you to keep coming and if you don't understand something they'll help you as much as they can and won't judge you at all. Solid 5 stars.

I'm so glad I found Gracies. There is so much I could say about the gym but the best part is the coaches and how good they are with all kids.
