Welcome to GMR Jiu-Jitsu. We represent Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in Claremont, Ca and we are a Ralph Gracie affiliated Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu academy located at 1420 Claremont blvd suite 200E in Claremont Ca. We teach self-defense/MMA and sport Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for kids, women and adults. Also, we often offer special 2 hour Seminar’s to members and the public. Formerly Gauntlet Jiu-Jitsu, “GMR” stands for Gregorio Marcellino Rivera. A Student of Ralph “the Pitbull” Gracie for 20 years now (2013) Gregorio is a second degree Black Belt and is the Instructor and owner/instructor of GMR Jiu-Jitsu. His philosophy of teaching is very dynamic because he believes everyone has a different learning style and body type. He believes Jiu-Jitsu can be for everyone no matter what their background, body type, ability, etc..
We have kids, women and adult programs available and our main goal is to build a solid Jiu-Jitsu family where the team can help each other grow in the art. We try to find the students’ main motivation to help them learn and understand techniques at an accelerated pace. The classes are 1hr and a half long with the exception of Monday’s open mat which is 2 hours in length. We currently have 3 kids classes a week and one women’s only class. The academy is located in beautiful Claremont California and is equipped with competition Zebra mats as well as crossfit and exercise equipment. We offer free bottled water for all students. We offer one free class and often have special discounted rates. The environment is an accelerated learning environment with detailed top quality instruction and good productive training. The students will learn not only sport Jiu-Jitsu but self defense and MMA Jiu-Jitsu techniques. The classes normally include a 10-15 minute warm-up followed by position and movement drills. Then a few techniques or a series of movement/techniques will be taught and drilled for another 20-30 minutes followed by full resistance training concluding the class. Come try a free class!
