Rob Staples

I started training martial arts 40 years ago. In 2001 I opened my own club to pursue jiu-jitsu. Jiu-jitsu was not such a well-established martial art back then but now we are part of an international club (Gracie Barra) with more than 700 affiliated schools throughout the world. At Gracie Barra we believe Jiu-jitsu is for everyone so it is our goal to provide an academy that is welcoming for people from all walks of life.
