Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for Adults & Teens
Street Ready Self-Defense
Gracie Combatives is our beginner program for adults to learn self-defense fast. In this program, you will learn the 36 core techniques of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu (also known as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu or BJJ) in a fun, safe, and cooperative environment. You can start the program at any time and participate in any class without previous experience.
The 36 Essential Techniques
Although Gracie Jiu-Jitsu consists of over 600 techniques, studies of real fights conducted by members of the Gracie Family have shown that 36 techniques have been used more often and with greater success than all the other techniques combined. Originally developed for the U.S. Army, Gracie Combatives is the only course that is entirely dedicated to the mastery of these 36 essential techniques.
