GRACIE JIU-JITSU

Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is taught, first and foremost as a system of self-defense, with the objective of giving the student the ability to stay safe and prevail during a real street fight confrontation, whereas Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, in most cases, is taught exclusively as a recreational sport.

Classes consist of warmups including stretching, discussion of the technique of the day, drilling, and finally putting it all to the test in open sparring in a live scenario.

"Jiu-jitsu puts you completely in the moment, where you must have a complete focus on finding a solution to the problem. This trains the mind to build that focus, to increase your awareness, your capacity to solve problems."

WHAT YOU Learn from JIU-JITSU

element
Self-Defense

Defending yourself is important. We teach common strike defense, as well as sweeps and takedowns to keep you safe. Regular BJJ sessions train you to defend yourself against attackers. This martial art allows weaker and smaller opponents to dominate bigger ones. Brazilian jiu-jitsu teaches you how to use your legs to control a stronger opponent and increases your flexibility to escape a difficult confrontation.

Critical Thinking

Real time problem solving and critical thinking skills are required. We teach very intricate moves that help develop these skills when applied. Every time you train, you are challenged both mentally and physically.

Discipline

BJJ training is systematic. You start by learning to tie your belt which you then teach to others. The detailed techniques and drills help you become an expert. When you help your training partners, you receive help in return.

Develop Patience

It takes time to become proficient in any martial art. A minimum of six months of training is required to give you a feeling for the sport. For best results, you need to work hard and maintain discipline. Putting in a lot of effort and patience will gradually allow you to grow into an expert.
