Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art based on the principles of leverage and timing, in order to defeat larger opponents. We train our students in practical self-defense techniques that allow efficent use of one's energy in defending themselves, while forcing attackers to waste energy. Students are trained to end fights through achieving control of an attacker and applying a joint lock, choke hold, or escaping the attack.
Gracie Jiu-Jitsu was developed by the Gracie Family. To read more about the Gracie family and Jiu-Jitsu click here: History of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu
