Gracie Barra Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu of Kirkland, the Most Black Belts On the Eastside.

Gracie Barra Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu of Kirkland has been in operation since August of 2013. Since then we boast a robust community and the Pacific Northwest region’s best Brazilian jiu-jitsu (BJJ) kids program. This is largely due to our head instructor and Professor Cindy Hales, one of the first female Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belts in the United States.

In addition to Professor Cindy, Gracie Barra Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu of Kirkland has a total of four resident black belt professors all who assist and teach class. No other school on the eastside can make this claim.

Professor Cindy Hales, as mentioned earlier one of the first female black belts in the United States. Professor Cindy’s game is unique, innovative, and creative. Her uncanny ability to relate and teach BJJ has made her a pioneer in teaching as well as the head of the Northwest’s most successful BJJ programs. Professor Cindy was featured in www.bjjee.com’s article about most successful BJJ programs run by female blackbelts. http://www.bjjee.com/articles/successful-bjj-academies-run-by-women-black-belts/ Originally awarded her black belt in 2006 by “Mamazinho” Laudier of Gracie Barra, Professor Cindy now holds three degrees on her black belt.

Professor Brian Ford was awarded his black belt in 2005 by “Mamazinho” Laudier. Professor Ford is a third degree black belt. His top game is smothering and his submissions are executed with precision.

Professor Casey King was awarded his black belt in 2010 by Professor Rodrigo Lopes of Gracie Barra Seattle. Professor King has earned his first degree on his black belt. Known for his well balanced and game and guard, Professor King adds a welcomed different point of view on BJJ which helps expand the minds of his students and the Gracie Barra Kirkland community.

Professor Alex Kyllo was just recently awarded his black belt in 2016 by Professor Cindy Hales. Professor Alex is our first student to reach the rank of black belt. Having Professor Alex in our community and participating in teaching and learning at Gracie Barra Kirkland has been a great asset and a wonderful addition to our black belts. With so many different perspectives on how to attack, defend, and compete, we truly have a unique community.

Thank you to all of our community members, staff, professors, parents, and families for making Gracie Barra Kirkland such a great place to train.
