Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is the fastest growing martial art and sport. It has a unique focus on the practical aspects of both standing grappling and ground fighting (defense and offense) with the goal of gaining a dominant position and using joint locks and holds to control and subdue an opponent while remaining safe and calm.
It teaches that a smaller, weaker person using leverage and proper technique can successfully defend themselves against a bigger, stronger assailant.
For kids we focus on the verbal, mental and physical self-defense aspects, body movements and positioning that can be safely used for bully prevention and defense. We build a strong foundation for adding the more offensive techniques as the child gains knowledge and control of the core techniques.
You may have heard of Gracie Combatives, the derivative program which has been widely incorporated into U.S. military training for a number of years.
Gracie Jiu-Jitsu and Self-defense training covers how to defend against strikes, kicks, and various types of grabs while standing as well as on the ground - where statistics show 90% of fights will end up. Gracie Jiu-Jitsu gives you options for any type of situation where you - or your child - find the need for self-defense and peace of mind.
