Our academy provides a unique opportunity to learn both the traditional Gracie Jiu Jitsu as passed to us by Master Royler Gracie and Rolker Gracie over the years, as well as Brazilian Jiu Jitsu as a sport in itself. The best of worth worlds.
All of our programs provide a fusion of self-defense in coordination with training jiu jitsu as a sport for competition. Not only do you learn and have fun in a very exciting sport, you also learn invaluable skills for protecting yourself and others in an altercation.
Our classes operate in a mentorship format where the most experience students will partner with the least experience students. This allows for newer students to gain valuable feedback and knowledge from the experience students directly every class.
We offer four membership programs which include a variety of classes. See below for all the details.
BJJ Kids Program – Ages 4-12 (3x week)
The Kids BJJ program allows for the students to build awareness, confidence and self-discipline while in a safe and friendly environment. As BJJ is a martial art that relies on leverage and balance to gain position, it is well suited to kids of all sizes and ages. BJJ encourages kids to recognize the strengths and weaknesses of varying body types, and how to use their particular strengths to their advantage.
The kids will learn various techniques and how to use them properly, safely and effectively. Classes also include controlled sparring there they will practice their moves with each other under the careful supervision of the instructors.
Teens Program – Ages 12-17 (2x week)
Our teens program provides a class dedicated to kids between 12-17 who typically find themselves too big for the kids class and some cases too small for the adult classes. It allows the teens to develop along side others their own age, providing them an optimum settings to improve.
Expanding upon the basics developed from the Kids program, the Teens program goes further into more advance moves and positions ensuring the teens are always challenged with new ideas, concepts and techniques.
