Gracie Jiu-Jitsu (Self Defense) Training

Gracie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a complete Martial Art and Self Defense System utilizing and perfecting the 5 most important aspects of fighting:

Standing Self Defense, Striking, Take-downs and Throws, Grappling and Philosophy. Standing Self Defense – Covering every thinkable situation standing Gracie Jiu-Jitsu combines striking, joint manipulations and choke-holds in order to subdue any attacker.

Striking – Punches, open hand strikes, elbows and kicks serve as weapons of self defense and tools to keep attackers at bay or close the distance in appropriate situations.

Take Downs and Throws – Effective from the clinch (standing grappling position), Gracie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu applies devastating throws and tactical take downs in order to control opponents.

Grappling – Perhaps what Gracie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is so well known for, its unique techniques make it the most effective grappling art known to man. Gracie Jiu-Jitsu teaches the concept of technique and leverage over strength and brute force thus allowing the smaller Jiu-Jitsu practitioner to remain effective even when their opponent is much stronger or heavier.

Philosophy – While no art is complete with out the moral backbone of philosophy, Gracie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu uses the Bushido Codes of old to guide its practitioners through modern life. Rectitude, Courage, Benevolence, Respect, Honesty, Honor and Loyalty serve as virtues for students to live by.
