JIU JITSU IS AN EFFECTIVE FIGHTING TECHNIQUE...

BUT MOST ACADEMIES FOCUS ON THE RECREATIONAL ASPECTS OF THE SPORT

They don’t address the proper techniques for self-defense in real-world situations. What you learn on the mat should translate to the rest of your life.

The key is learning proven self-defense techniques in a safe and supportive environment that encourages discipline and empowerment.

Gracie Combatives is a cycle of 23 self-defense classes that teaches the 36 most useful Brazilian Jiu Jitsu moves, so you can use them to defend yourself. You’ll learn the basics, then you’ll learn how to combine them to de-escalate fights when possible, and disable your attacker when necessary.

LEARN THE 36 MOST EFFECTIVE MOVES

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu consists of more than 600 moves that may be used in combination either in sparring or in self-defense. We’ve identified the moves that work the best in real combat and put them into one course.

The moves we teach are appropriate for beginners, but they also work at the highest levels of competition. In other words, what you learn in Gracie Combatives can be the basis for competition if that’s what you want.

Best of all, the moves we teach are designed to be combined to make them more effective. Once you’ve mastered them, you can move on to Reflex Development classes to learn how to combine them.

LEARN IN A SAFE AND SECURE ENVIRONMENT

LEARN IN A SAFE AND SECURE ENVIRONMENT

One of the most common reasons people quit Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is because they get hurt. Students sometimes say that they feel like they’re walking into enemy territory when they get to the gym.

Gracie Combatives is designed with safety in mind. We believe that you don’t need to hurt each other on the mat to defend yourself in the street.

You’ll learn how to do the best self-defense techniques without hurting yourself in class. In other words, you can save the real combat for the streets – where you’ll need it.

A PROVEN STRUCTURE THAT WORKS

Traditional martial arts classes require you to start at the beginning and attend every class to complete your training. We designed Gracie Combatives with convenience in mind.

The basic Gracie Combatives curriculum consists of 23, one-hour classes. In each class, you’ll learn one standing technique and one ground technique.

Best of all, you can start the cycle at any time. As long as you complete all 23 classes in the cycle, you can move toward earning your belt.

START AT ANY AGE OR FITNESS LEVEL

START AT ANY AGE OR FITNESS LEVEL

One of the core requirements of any self-defense technique is that it should be useful whether you have a martial arts background or not – and whether you’re already in great shape or not.

The Gracie Combatives curriculum is a beginner curriculum. Even if you’ve never stepped on a mat before, you can start with any class and work your way through it.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu teaches you how to use your opponent’s body weight and momentum to defend yourself, so you can put the moves to work at any fitness level or age.

FAQS

FAQS

I’ve heard that Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is dangerous – will I get hurt in class?

Some Jiu Jitsu classes don’t focus on safety, but that’s not the case with Gracie Combatives. We put our students’ safety first. Our motto is “You don’t have to fight on the mat to defend yourself on the street.”

I don’t know what to expect in class. Do I need to do any preparation ahead of time?

No, you don’t need to prepare ahead of time. However, once you’re enrolled in Gracie Combatives, you’ll get free access to Gracie University, where you can watch videos of the techniques to be covered in class.

Do I need any special equipment to take Gracie Combative classes?

The only thing you need is a traditional gi – the loose-fitting white top and pants that you’ve probably seen in other martial arts classes.

I’m not really interested in fighting. Why should I take Gracie Combatives?

The bottom line is that this is about self-defense, not self-offense. Sometimes the fight comes to you whether you want it to or not. Gracie Combatives isn’t about being aggressive – it’s about getting out of dangerous situations.

What if I miss the first class? Do I need to wait for a new one to start?

No. We’ve designed Gracie Combatives to work as a cycle. You can start with any lesson and cycle through the 23 lessons that make up the course.
