Gracie Combatives is an entry-level beginner jiu-jitsu program dedicated to the 36 most important techniques identified over 80 years of Gracie Family fight history. Classes are conducted in a safe, structured learning environment, so that anyone can learn regardless of age or physical ability. Once a student develops their muscle memory in the execution of these core techniques and graduates from the Gracie Combatives program, they move on to the Master Cycle.
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 instructors 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 .
We have divided the 36 Gracie Combatives techniques into 23 one-hour classes so that you can complete the course at your own pace. We designed each lesson so that you can start at any point in the course. As a result, you can complete the 23 lessons in any order. Upon enrolling, we will issue you a Gracie Combatives attendance card on which we will track your progress every step of the way.
nce 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 combine the 36 techniques to address the most common occurrences in a real fight .
Once you complete each of the Gracie Combatives lessons three times, and you’ve completed at least 12 Reflex Development Classes, you are eligible to test for promotion to Combatives Belt! We will administer a 25-minute test to assess your ability to execute the 36 essential techniques individually and in combination. If your performance meets Gracie Academy standards, you will qualify for promotion to combatives belt and you will be allowed to attend the Master Cycle classes.

From the rough streets of Rio de Janeiro to the spotlights of the UFC, Gracie Jiu-Jitsu has proven to be the most effective self-defense system of all time. In this special introductory video, produced in collaboration with Art of Manliness, Rener Gracie breaks down the exact science behind the techniques of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu that have made the art effective against giants for three generations!
How street ready are you?
With so much debate and confusion surrounding the issue of street vs. sport jiu-jitsu, Ryron and Rener sit down for a very candid talk in which they explain the fundamental differences between the two.
John Ikuma is a one-stripe white belt in the Gracie Combatives program who hasn't trained for over 5 months. On Friday, March 24, his jiu-jitsu was put to the test when he intervened in a violent assault. The very next day, he returned to class and he broke down the entire incident for Rener as well as all the students in attendance at the 10am Gracie Combatives class. John managed the distance AND the damage. Amazing!
A little fight simulation to test the techniques.
