Self Defence

Our Self Defense Fundamentals Program: Specifically Designed to Enhance your core basics, and understanding’ of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu’s overall self-defense. With over 100 techniques including weapon defense, this is the same program our students learn in class at our academy and makes up our fundamental program.

Ground Fighting

Almost every real street encounter you may find yourself in starts from stand up. But stats show 99 % of real fights end up on the ground. We believe Gracie Jiu-Jitsu to be a complete system of self-defense where we would be confronted by a larger stronger attacker, and the fight taken to the ground. Knowing how to Attack-control & defend on the ground is crucial.


While our cousins who train Sportive/Brazilian jiu-jitsu do not include strikes of any kind, Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is a complete system of self-defense that includes striking techniques. We are not teaching our students to become stand up fighters we only strike when there is little or no chance that our opponent can strike us back or so we can ensure a Clinch – Takedown- or Submission

Clinch & Takedown

All fights start standing, we deem one of the most important skills for a Gracie jiu-jitsu practitioner is to have the ability to close the distance safely take the fight to the ground dominate the position and finish the fight. Understanding how to Control the distance will minimize the risk of being hit with strikes when a violent confrontation takes place.

The Jiu Jitsu I created was designed to give the weak ones a chance to face the heavy and strong.
