There is a remarkable difference in the technical growth of students who regularly take one-on-one private lessons compared to those who only do group classes. If you are interested in taking private classes here are some of the key benefits. 


Reach Mastery Faster

The only way to reduce the amount of time it takes to reach Gracie Jiu-Jitsu mastery is to set very specific training/technical goals based on your current strengths and weaknesses on the mat. Your personal instructor’s primary objective will be to help you understand where you are, where you need to be, and exactly what you must do to get there in the least amount of time possible!


Identify & Correct Your Bad Habits 

Most people don’t know what they don’t know. In group lessons, often times the techniques are presented so quickly that it is difficult to retain all the details. In private lessons, your private instructor will have a chance to personally feel your movements and give you instant feedback on what needs fixing.


Personalise Your Jiu-Jitsu

Although Gracie Jiu-Jitsu can be learned by anyone, it works differently for everyone. In private lessons, your instructor will go to great lengths to help you discover your “game” or the specific style of jiu-jitsu that best suits you – based on your age, weight, height, flexibility (or lack thereof), etc., so that you can maximise your efficiency on the mat.  


Learn Secret Techniques

Each Certified Gracie Academy Instructor has a unique style. In your private lessons you will have the opportunity to learn special techniques that were developed and perfected by your instructor as well as key strategies that are often overlooked, undiscovered, or simply too complex to teach in a group class setting.
