Gracie Jiu Jitsu is a highly effective and comprehensive system of standing and ground defense techniques utilizing rules of leverage. Many real life examples show how most street attacks will end upon the ground. This makes Gracie Jiu Jitsu an ideal martial art for these situations, which demand simple and effective responses. Gracie Jiu Jitsu techniques were refined and innovated by the late Grand Master Helio Gracie who weighed no more than 145 pounds. He focused on using only techniques that involved the use of very little strength but emphasized leverage and position of the body to defend and control harmful situations.
Individuals will be able to train realistically in a safe supportive environment. In addition to its self-defense potential, Gracie Jiu Jitsu offers a tremendous workout emphasizing aerobic and anaerobic conditioning, making it a challenging fun workout for anyone regardless of athletic ability. One of the greatest advantages of Gracie Jiu Jitsu is that it offers the ability of people of all sizes to learn the principles of leverage that will assist them in defending against or defeating a larger opponent. Participating in a Gracie Jiu Jitsu program improves confidence, self-esteem, mental and physical health for students of all ages.
