Gracie Jiu-Jitsu

  
  
What is Gracie Jiu-Jitsu? Also known as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, it originated from Japanese Jiu-Jitsu, but was refined and perfected by the Gracie family of Brazil. Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is similar to Judo and focuses on ground grappling and wrestling moves including submissions, but Gracie Jiu-Jitsu also utilizes over 100 personal protection techniques making it the most complete and effective personal protection martial art the world has ever known.
 
With the creation of the Ultimate Fighting Championships in 1993, Gracie Jiu-Jitsu revolutionized the martial arts world by demonstrating how a smaller and weaker opponent could strategically defeat a much larger and stronger opponent without using brute force or causing serious injury. Gracie Jiu-Jitsu focuses on five areas: Stand up techniques, take-downs, ground grappling, personal protection and the overall character development of the participant.
 
Today, Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is the official hand-to-hand combat system of the United States Military and law enforcement agencies throughout the world (graciemiami.com). Gracie Dojo™ provides a direct lineage to Grandmaster Helio Gracie’s original and refined Gracie Jiu-Jitsu.
