“Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is for anyone, including you!”
Joined GB Poco in Sep 22 as a 53+ year old first timer. I needed to get healthier, gyms are boring and I wanted to do something that scared / challenged me. I will admit to being VERY nervous before my first class. I started rolling with the 6 AM "Better Than Coffee" group and instantly (I mean minute 1), I was made to feel welcome and supported. The facility is clean, bright and there is a solid mix of male / female students at various levels of ability. Today, I try to go 3x a week and I am getting all the challenge, fitness and skill development that I had hoped for. I also got something that I wasn't expecting. A community. The level of support, encouragement, patience and comradery from the Professor, Coach and the other (higher belt) students has been amazing. I am so grateful for taking the step to join GB to learn Jiu Jitsu and I would 100% recommend GB Poco to anyone who wants to feel the thrill of overcoming challenge.

Me and my children joined Gracie Barra Port Coquitlam a little over 3 years ago. It has been such an amazing gym to train in. The professors and coaches are top notch. They are patient and caring with my children. Teaching them discipline and jiu-jitsu fundamentals in a safe, clean, amazing environment. It's not only a gym in training facility. It's also a second home and family. Also Gracie Barra is a top awarded Academy and their teaching style is focused and curriculum is very well organized. Anybody wanting to train jujitsu at any age and any skill level you need to come and try Gracie Barra Port Coquitlam!

My daughter joined the poco family about a year ago at the age of 8. Since joining we have seen her confidence rise, she has made new friends and now goes 3 days a week. The school has an excellent after school program as well. During the year they have competitions the kids and adults can participate in which is also great and well put together.
Most recently my wife and I have also joined the family and although we may be sore we both left with a smile and a better understanding of this martial art. Don’t hesitate and contact them if your even thinking about joining. I look forward to meeting you on the mat.
