Gracie_Combatives_TriangleAlthough Gracie Jiu-Jitsu consists of over 600 techniques, studies of real fights conducted by members of the Gracie Family have shown that 36 techniques have been used more often and with greater success than all the other techniques combined. Originally developed for the U.S. Army, Gracie Combatives is the only course that is entirely dedicated to the mastery of these 36 essential techniques. Absolutely no experience is necessary to get started; this program is specifically designed to be enjoyed by any new student regardless of age, gender, or athletic ability.

Step 1: Learn the Techniques

The 36 Gracie Combatives techniques have been strategically divided into 23 one-hour classes so that you can complete the course at your own pace.  Each lesson was specifically designed so that no previous experience is required.  As a result, you can complete the 23 lessons in any order.

Step 2: Develop Your Reflexes

Once you complete each of the 23 Gracie Combatives lessons twice, you will qualify to participate in the Reflex Development (RD) classes where you will learn how to execute the 36 techniques in the combinations that are most likely to occur in a real fight.

Step 3: Earn Your Blue Belt

Once you complete each of the Gracie Combatives lessons a third time and your reflexes are solid, you are eligible to be tested for promotion to blue belt!
