Authentic Gracie Jiu-Jitsu


Authentic Gracie Jiu-Jitsu

Most martial arts rely heavily on strength, power, speed and athletic ability. However, Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is a martial arts system based on maximizing timing, technique and leverage to overcome an opponent. Even when battling a larger and stronger opponent our system allows a smaller opponent to survive and prevail effectively. For example, in a fight the safest place to be is top of your opponent and on the ground, which nullifies many of the athletic and size advantages of a larger opponent.

We teach our adult students how to take down aggressive opponents and use various holds (chokes & joint locks) to cause the opponent to “submit”. Gracie Jiu-Jitsu also considers the danger of the having a larger opponent on top of us and uses the same principles to attack from the bottom, either submitting our opponent or finishing safely on top.

These considerations for safety, technique, and natural movements creates an amazing activity where you can learn a skill, break a sweat and be mentally engaged in a supportive, friendly atmosphere.
