Our adult Gracie Jiu-Jitsu program teaches students a variety of effective techniques such as take downs, ground control holds, joint locks, choke holds, sweeps, reversals and self-defense strategies.
Many fights and altercations end up in grappling range or on the ground and because Gracie Jiu-jitsu is primarily a self-defense, ground fighting and grappling martial art, it is very effective in real life self-defense situations. Where the ground is the end for many martial artists, it is only the beginning for us. Gracie Jiu-jitsu can also be pursued as a competitive sport. While competition is not required it is a great way to test your skill and meet new friends.
Our Adult Program starts with our fundamental Jiu-Jitsu program which focuses on teaching new students the building blocks and techniques of Gracie Jiu-jitsu. At our academy we track your attendance, teach you a proven curriculum of techniques and build you from the ground up!
We also have more advanced classes once you have become acclimated with the academy and are ready to expand your training.
Our kid’s Gracie Jiu-jitsu program is designed for children 5-7 years old and focuses on very basic martial arts principles such as coordination drills, basic positions, body mechanics/awareness, self-discipline and the Gracie family games which are a fun way to learn Jiu-Jitsu and to learn safely.
Our Youth Gracie Jiu-jitsu program is for ages 8-13 years old. Our program teaches the fundamentals of traditional Gracie/Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and also mixes in basic Judo and Wrestling for a well-rounded martial arts education for your child.
Our program also focuses on teaching kids to work hard, never give up and always try to help others. Physical fitness drills will help your child build a strong body and improve their flexibility, strength, speed and coordination. Discipline, respect and self-control are also stressed in our kids program. All of these qualities in combination with the self-defense aspects of learning Gracie Jiu-jitsu will help your child succeed in all areas of life! As with our adult and teen programs, competitions are also available for kids but are not required.
