Prof Josh is a great instructor and the business is understanding and willing to break up payments to make it easier to afford for college students like me!

I've been training here for about 3 weeks now and it's been great so far. There are so many options to train if your schedule is unpredictable. The people that train there are very helpful and the training curriculum is definitely legit. I've gotten a lot better since training here and look forward to progressing even further. More...

I don't think these guys need a review from me to show how good they are, but I'd like to put in my two cents anyway. I've trained in multiple arts for years (mma) and strict jiu jitsu off and on throughout 10 year span of time. I couldn't dedicate a membership as I am moving to a different state after finishing at UIUC, but the owner gave me multiple opportunities to come in and train for free. He was willing to work with me and my girlfriend to accommodate our needs for training within reason. Everyone I trained with there was extremely friendly and accommodating when it came to learning new techniques, drills, and rolling. This was long winded, but I wanted to give insight on my full experience. If anyone is new to the art, consider going here first. More...

I trained at Gracie Barra BJJ last night. It was my first time at the school. I was treated like family the minute I walked in the door. I had a great workout with very professional instruction and very friendly training partners. The students were skilled and respective to ensure no one got injured. I attended the advance class and was very impressed with the instruction and skills of the attendees. I would recommend this school to anyone looking for professional instruction within a friendly family like environment. More...

I attended a Commando Krav Maga seminar ranran Josh. Josh provided professional, comprehensive, and individualized instruction in CKM. In addition to what can be expected at a seminar, all the staff at Gracie Barra helped welcome me to the city, and provided an overall experience of outstanding hospitality. Weather you come to this establishment for CKM or jujitsu I can guarantee you will learn and better yourself in the process. More...

Very efficient, great lesson planning, and demands discipline. A short warm up is performed at the start of every practice followed by rolls and falls, followed by the lesson. Lessons included self defense first some days followed by sport application, some days were focused entirely on sport applications of techniques. Overall, a well-run dojo with quality control. I recommend this to anyone who wants a good workout, wants to learn BJJ for fun, or wants to compete. More...

I go to GB Champaign for the Commando Krav Maga classes. Since my first class, I was hooked. The instructors are patient, knowledgeable, and able to adapt their teaching styles to best suit their students' needs. I learn something new each class, and look forward to each one! More...
