Dear members of Gracie Barra Downers,
We all have been through tremendous changes these past few months due to the current pandemic, and we are grateful to be sailing through this storm with every one of you!
As you know, the admin and instructor team work hard on paying attention to the latest guidance from the GB headquarters as well as recommendations from the leading health and safety organizations. Our goal is to help all of us continue enjoying what we love in the safest and most hygienic approach possible. We recognize that it’s important to ensure your confidence in knowing that we not only safeguard you but also with your family’s health in mind.
While most of you started settling down to your own training schedule with familiar partners, we plan to start implementing the buddy system on Monday, August 10th. This safety measure aims to keep you with regular training partners in a small group of up to 4 people, to minimize your exposure to other circles. You have the freedom to train with any and all of the members within your small group during class time and helps you to always have a training partner on the mats.
Here is what we need from you:
Check-in with those who you have been training with the past few weeks agree to form a group of 2 to 4, then submit the name(s) to the admin team at 309-533-8339 (text only) before your next training day.
A few reminders: Please be sure to communicate with ALL of your group members to ensure everyone is on board forming the group before submitting the names. Once a group is locked in and finalized, we will not swap members with other groups unless if it’s deemed necessary by your head instructors. If you cannot find a group, the instructors can make suggestions based on who you have been training with, or who else has a similar training schedule that’s also seeking to add members to his/her group. Please note that groups are not finalized until reviewed by the instructors, and they may reach out to recommend changes based on safety and other considerations.
Please text us at 309-533-8339 if you have questions. We look forward to starting this new initiative with your support.

Repost from @graciebarra
“I teach my students to repeat the moves to exhaustion, until it enters their subconscious and they therefore can apply them automatically, without thinking. Later on, once the combat situations have become complex I try and stimulate them to be creative.” ? Master Carlos Gracie Jr. in action.
