Jiu-Jitsu for Everyone

About Us

Gracie Barra Novi is focused on providing world class  Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Muay Thai kickboxing training  for men, women and children.  This is the second Gracie Barra school to be opened the in the State of Michigan by Black Belt instructor, Professor James E. Burchfield, along with his student Greg Fernandes. Professor Burchfield has been operating his original martial arts school in Burton, MI for 30 consecutive years where Greg has been a student and instructor for 14 years.  All Gracie Barra schools teach from a time tested curriculum developed by Master Carlos Gracie, and refined over the years through the more than 400 Gracie Barra Franchises around the world.  In addition, having trained with many of the worlds current top practitioners, Professor Burchfield has incorporated the most up to date techniques from those practitioners into his advanced curriculum.  While we teach you the core foundation that all practitioners will require, we also focus on body type specific techniques so each individual will be able to develop a skill set more suited to their own capabilities.  All age levels, from children as young as 3 up to adults of any age, have age specific curriculum to accommodate age specific abilities.  You can rest assured that your child will be receiving top quality instruction from a proven curriculum.

In addition to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, we also offer Muay Thai Kickboxing.  As a Black Belt Instructor in Hsing-I Kung Fu, Professor Burchfield has expanded his martial arts study into the realm of Muay Thai Kickboxing.  While most schools and gyms offer a kickboxing program, they are largely nothing more than cardio-kickboxing workouts with little technique.  We will teach you practical fighting techniques in Muay Thai Kickboxing learned directly from the source.  Professor Burchfield has traveled to Thailand to train with professional Muay Thai fighters.  Our Muay Thai program is designed to teach real self defense, along with a great cardio workout.

When you sign up for any of our programs, you will receive your private introductory class, a team T-shirt, and a program DVD for our BJJ programs.  Come find out why Gracie Barra is the largest BJJ franchise on the planet!
