Gracie Barra Novi, MIGracie Barra Novi, MI

Jiu-Jitsu for Everyone



One of the things we take pride in at Gracie Barra  Novi is the cleanliness of our facility.  Let’s face it, even though our students love coming to our gym, none of them want it to smell like a gym!  Our clean, open design allows for excellent airflow to prevent that typical gym smell.  Regular mat cleaning keeps our training surface in excellent shape.  My own kids train at our academy so you have added insurance that I personally make this a top priority.  With brand new Zebra mats, our training surface uses one of the highest quality surfaces in the industry, so you are guaranteed a safe training environment.

Not all gyms are created equal.  Many martial arts schools do not invest in the highest quality materials, but at Gracie Barra Novi it was a no brainer for us to make sure the most important training apparatus for our students…our mats, were of the highest quality.  But don’t take our word for it, come on in and see for yourself!  Give us a call at 248-957-9597 and schedule your own visit and introductory class today!  We look forward to seeing YOU, on the mat.

Thank You,

Greg Fernandes



So it’s been a little while since we updated our facility pics.  Quite the change has occurred since December.  It was quite the labor of love painting the logo on the wall to proudly display who we are.  I think I spent about 10-12 hours planning, taping and painting.  But it all paid off (well in my opinion anyway!).  Come on in and have a look, and while you’re at it, why not give the fastest growing martial art in the world a chance to grow on YOU like it has grown on US.  Give us a call at 248-957-9597 to schedule your appointment now.

Coming Jan 2015!

We are inching forward towards our planned opening of Gracie Barra Novi at 40400 Grand River Rd, Suite E, in January of 2015.  As of Nov 21st, 2014, the city has finally approved our plans and construction has begun on the addition of the second bathroom and placement of the counter.   Here is a sneak peak of the space before construction has begun, and the framing of the 2nd bathroom.  This beautiful 2500 square foot facility with be outfitted with 1600 square feet of mat space using top of the line Zebra 1 1/2″ MMA mats.  We will have 2 bathrooms, 2 water fountains, an adult lounge area and a children’s activity area so children not part of the class will have an area to call their own while their siblings are on the mat.  Stop on by to check out the progress that will be moving fast and furious at this point.  Better yet, give us a call at 248-957-9597 to set up your private intro, or your very own anti-bullying seminar for your group.  Look soon for our Grand Opening offers including free t-shirts, free kimonos, free intro DVD’s and a chance to win 3 MONTHS OF FREE TRAINING.  But don’t delay, this offer is only good for the first 20 people to sign up.  What better way to start the year off but with a plan to get in shape where a personal trainer will motivate and educate you, and your family.  Call today at 248-957-9597, and we will see YOU on the mat.
