January 2017 - JC at his ICP (Instructors Certification Program). With Ryron & Rener Gracie.

Beginner classes


Gracie Combatives® is the beginner program for adults. You will learn the 36 core techniques of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu® in a fun, safe, and cooperative environment.

Each twenty-three (23) one-hour lesson addresses one standing, and one ground self-defense technique. You can start the program at any time, and participate in any class without previous experience.

Because safety is our number one concern, there is no competitive sparring in this program.

This course is designed to give anyone the skills necessary to survive an attack against a larger, stronger, and more athletic opponent.

Upon successful completion of the Gracie Combatives® program, you will earn your Gracie Combatives® Belt, and you will qualify for advancement to the Master Cycle® program.


In order to take the Gracie Combatives® belt test, student must be 14 years of age, and to test for Blue Belt, student must be 16.
