Gracie Combatives is our beginner program for adults. In this program, you will learn the 36 core techniques of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in a fun,
safe, and cooperative environment. Each one-hour lesson addresses one standing and one ground self-defense technique,
which are further broken down into simplified drills to facilitate the learning process. You can start the program at
any time and participate in any class without previous experience and, since safety is our number one concern,
there is no competitive sparring in this program. Upon successful completion of the Gracie Combatives program you will
earn your Gracie Combatives Belt which will qualify you for advancement into the Master Cycle program.
Beyond Gracie Combatives belt, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) consists of hundreds of advanced techniques organized into a clearly defined,
systematic curriculum called the Master Cycle. The Master Cycle's unique structure simplifies the journey to black belt by organizing
all of BJJ into into seven positional chapters (Mount, Side Mount, Guard, Half Guard, Back Mount, Leg Locks, Standing),
each of which is studied for several months before moving on to the next chapter.
