Gracie Fundamentals is our beginner program for adults. In this program, you will learn the 36 core techniques of Gracie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in an safe and cooperative environment. Each one-hour lesson addresses one standing and one ground self-defense technique. You can start the program at any time, without previous experience and, since safety is our number one concern, there is no competitive sparring in this program. Upon successful completion of the Gracie Fundamentals program you will earn your Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Blue Belt which will qualify you for advancement into the Gracie Advanced program. Although 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. You need absolutely no experience to start this program. Our well-trained Gracie Concepts-instructors and school partners conduct all classes in a cooperative training environment and are committed to ensuring that every new student has an informative, enjoyable experience regardless of age, gender, or athletic ability. 80 min.
