4 REASONS TO CHOOSE GRACIE COMBATIVES...

Incredible Structure

Gracie Combatives will teach you 36 of the most effective techniques of Jiu Jitsu. We have split the techniques of 23 lessons that you can work through at your own pace with a calendar showing you which classes are coming up. Once you feel comfortable with the techniques, we will invite you to our intermediate class where you will learn to combine the techniques in every possible combination and start to increase the resistance. If you pass our belt qualification test you will move to our advanced program. 

Safe Training Environment

In this class, safety is the number one priority. In far too many BJJ schools, the classes are structured to meet the needs of the most elite students. If you are a beginner student, you are expected to serve as a “grappling dummy” for those above you. The thought process is, if you avoid injury, and stick around long enough, you will eventually figure it out. At our CTCs we take the opposite approach. Firstly, there is no competitive sparring in our beginner programs. As a result, you’ll have a chance to learn all the beginner techniques in a fully-cooperative environment, with like-minded training partners before moving to our advanced program.

Street Readiness

When it was originally founded, Brazilian Jiu-jitsu only had one purpose – effectiveness in real fights. Several decades later, when sportive competition was introduced and popularised, there was a distinct shift in training objectives at most BJJ schools causing them to neglect the self-defence aspect of jiu-jitsu. At all Gracie University Training Centres, self-defence remains the top priority throughout all of our training programs. From your very first class, every technique you learn was specifically chosen due to it’s like likelihood of being used, and proven effectiveness, in real combat. Our belief is that only once a student learns all the necessary skills to stay safe in a real fight, should he or she begin exploring the sportive aspects of jiu-jitsu.
