Dear Students and Parents,

Over the past week, the concerns related to the Covid-19 outbreak have continued to increase and the number of cases continues to grow in many regions around the world.

Unfortunately, the only proven method to effectively slow down the spread of a virus that has no vaccine is social distancing.

Gracie Barra Organisation is a force against the spread of Covid-19 and as a global team, we must also do our part and contribute to flattening the curve of the spread of the virus to help our health system remain functional.

At Gracie Barra Newcastle City our top priority is the health and safety of our team members, so we all need to do our part, temporarily changing our daily routines to embrace social distance.

However, we will not allow this virus to prevent us from continuing to pursue our mission of bringing Jiu-Jitsu for Everyone. We understand that, especially in times like this, you and your family need Jiu-Jitsu to stay healthy, both physically and mentally.

Starting from Friday, March 20th, we will be limiting our school's activities to distance learning over the internet for two consecutive weeks. We will then evaluate what federal and local health officials are recommending or mandating before bringing back group classes.

We are super excited to bring the Gracie Barra Virtual learning experience to you and your family.

We are joining forces with GB Online to provide a wide array of Jiu-Jitsu learning experiences including all existing online instructional and live-streaming classes. 

While the Covid-19 outbreak develops, we will continue to adapt to bring Jiu-Jitsu to your daily life while keeping your health and safety our top priority. We will continue to monitor the situation, and let you know when we intend to resume regular face to face training at our school.

Lastly, we kindly ask you to not freeze or cancel your membership. Now, more than ever, we need your trust and support in our work. The livelihood of our amazing staff depends on our ability to stick together, supporting each other during these tough times.

On behalf of ourselves, our family, the GB Staff, and every single member of this team, we ask for your continued support to help us weather this storm.

Thank you in advance for your continuous support.

See you online!

GB Newcastle Family
