A Structured Gracie Jiu-JItsu Path from Blue to Black Belt

about programs MC 960x600 4

A Structured Path From Blue to Black Belt.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu can be very confusing and overwhelming, especially at the advanced level. In our Master Cycle Advanced Jiu-Jitsu Classes we’ve taken over 600 techniques and divided them into 7 Positional Chapters so you can learn in a highly-structured and easy-to-follow format, and it’s located right here in Torrance!

Leave Your Ego At The Door.

Too often advanced jiu-jitsu instruction is approached with a sink-or-swim attitude that leads many students to quit due to loss of interest, embarrassment, or injury.

We prioritize the safety of our students, so they can enjoy learning and exploring the art of jiu-jitsu in a cooperative and ego-free environment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Most frequent questions and answers about our Martial Arts Programs

Some describe sparring in jiu-jitsu as “Mediation” because they are only focused on the present moment at all times during their sessions. They are not thinking about their to-do list that day, only what they will do next in their jiu-jitsu “human chess match.”

For this reason, it is one of the most fun and mentally challenging workouts that can still be self-paced. We have seen individuals start from all fitness levels gain confidence and stamina on the mat through their jiu-jitsu practice.

No. At Gracie University, we are not a competition-focused gym. Our first priority for our martial arts students is that they learn the fundamentals of self-defense. What you need to do to survive against an aggressive, untrained opponent may be different than what you would need to learn for a sport jiu-jitsu tournament.

We support the individual jiu-jitsu journeys of each one of our students, regardless of whether they choose to test their skills in competition.

On average, it takes a minimum of 10 years of jiu-jitsu practice to become a Black Belt, but it can be shorter or longer depending on the frequency of training.
