What is Gracie Jiu Jitsu?
Pioneered by the legendary Helio Gracie and his brother Carlos in the vibrant heart of Brazil, Gracie Jiu Jitsu—commonly known as Brazilian Jiu Jitsu or BJJ—is celebrated as one of the most effective self-defence systems in the world.
The Gracie family has demonstrated, whether through challenge matches or by creating the UFC, that with the right technique and strategy, people can at the very least protect themselves effectively against someone larger and stronger - and in many cases have complete control over them.
Such an advantage is so profound, that numerous professionals in roles where they have to engage physically with someone, are turning to Jiu Jitsu.
What will you be learning in Gracie Jiu Jitsu?
When practiced as a sport, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is primarily a ground grappling martial art. While we are passionate about the sport and practice it regularly, Gracie Jiu Jitsu's main focus is self-defence. Here, you will learn all aspects of the art as it was originally intended.
You'll learn how to defend against strikes both standing and on the ground, plus how to use them tactically to enhance your grappling skills.
You'll learn how to take someone to the ground where you'll have greater control over some one - and also how to prevent someone from taking you down.
Build comfort in worst case scenarios and worst case scenarios cease to exist. You'll learn how to escape the most dangerous positions.
You'll learn how to use pressure, base and connections to control someone on the ground no matter how much they try to escape.
If control is not enough, you'll learn how to use chokes and joint locks to force someone to surrender without needing to cause unnecessary damage.
There's more to Gracie Jiu Jitsu than you think!
Feeling like you lack energy, putting weight on and low mood are all symptoms of not enough exercise. Jiu Jitsu is a great workout without feeling like you're working out!
We have so many responsibilities and commitments that sometimes we forget to have fun! Jiu Jitsu is interesting, challenging and something people look forward to.
When you join Gracie Jiu Jitsu, you are joining a family of people that care about each other and want the best. There is a level of connection and trust unlike any else.
