CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

Gracie Combat Fundamentals: Required for all students of all levels, these classes are the foundation of jiu jitsu. Students will learn fundamental techniques to help you protect yourself successfully in the most common self-defense scenarios. Many of these techniques are the exact same ones taught to our military and law enforcement officers to help them survive a variety of hostile situations. The core concepts of technique, timing, and leverage are at the forefront of these classes. This means that our focus is on efficiency over size, strength, or athleticism.   

Reflex Development: After students receive their 1st stripe on their white belt, they are eligible to participate in Reflex Development classes. In this class, students refine some of the Gracie Combat Fundamentals and drill self-defense scenarios that they are likely to encounter. This allows students to start combining the techniques they have already learned with minimal resistance in order to build proper muscle memory. 

Fight Simulation: This will be included in Master Cycle classes, so always have your gear on hand.  Once students receive their 2nd stripe on their white belt, they are invited to participate in Fight Simulation classes. In this class, students learn proper striking techniques and strategies to facilitate their jiu jitsu goals in a fight scenario. They will also learn good defensive concepts to help minimize damage until they are able to use techniques to reverse the situation. This training focuses on controlled and safe striking within the context of realistic fight scenarios. This class requires 5.5 ounce boxing/MMA gloves and a mouth guard.  

Master Cycle: Once students receive their 2nd stripe on their white belt, they are invited to participate in Master Cycle classes. In this class, students learn more advanced techniques to enhance their jiu jitsu vocabulary to supplement Combat Fundamentals. Master Cycle is broken down into multi-month chapters focusing on all aspects of a specific position. This class includes resistance drilling and sparring, which is highly recommended to sharpen students’ skills versus a resistant opponent.  

Gracie Women’s Self Defense: This all-women’s class focuses on crucial techniques and mindset training to help you safely and confidently navigate an uncomfortable or dangerous situation, and protect yourself before or during an attack. This class is available to any women who wish to join.
