Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu passion
In March 2015, Andrea Warner sought a new challenge and exercise and joined a local Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) school. Despite the intimidating nature of BJJ for some women, Andrea was undeterred and quickly fell in love with the sport.
“Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a life-changing sport! I strongly recommend BJJ for women.”Andrea Warner.
Gracie Barra, a new dream
After some time Andrea found a Gracie Barra school near her and fell in love. The Gracie Barra method was so well structured, focused on practical self-defense techniques for everyday life. The programs make it easy for students to track their progress and improvement. This was so different from any other school she had tried.
“The structure of classes aligned with the team’s great support made me feel eager to dive into classes, especially after I found a Gracie Barra near me” – Coach Andrea Warner.
It wasn’t long before Andrea’s passion for Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu grew into a dream of having her school. She envisioned a clean and welcoming BJJ school in Salt Lake City that would inspire and motivate kids, men, and women to learn both BJJ and self-defense classes.
“I was amazed by all the organization and guidance offered by Gracie Barra Headquarters for new schools” – Coach Andrea Warner.
