Rorion Gracie established North America’s first Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Academy in Torrance, California in 1989 where it has become the epicenter of a global Gracie Jiu-Jitsu revolution. On June 4, 2012 the Gracie Academy opened its second official location in the heart of Beverly Hills, at 324 S. Beverly Dr. (between Olympic and Wilshire). With granite showers, bamboo floors, and an interactive touch-screen kiosk in the spacious lobby, our state-of-the-art training facility feels more like high-end spa than a martial arts academy. At this location we specialize in small group classes and private training for men, women, and children of all ages and athletic abilities. Stop by for a quick tour of our beautiful new facility, or give us a call and we’ll schedule you for a free introductory class one of our highly qualified instructors. No experience is necessary and you’re guaranteed to have fun!

Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is for everyone! At the Gracie Academy, we offer specialized programs for the entire family: Gracie Bullyproof for kids (ages 5-12), Women Empowered for ladies only, Gracie Combatives for beginner adults, and the Master Cycle for advanced adults. For three generations, the Gracie family’s primary focus has been to teach jiu-jitsu in a way that is welcoming, safe, and easy for new students, especially those with no previous experience. Today, our patented teaching methods, unique programs, and welcoming introductory classes, allow anyone to experience the magic of jiu-jitsu without feeling intimidated or overwhelmed.

While the Gracie Academy is internationally famous for the quality of its group classes, it’s been proven that private training gives students maximum comprehension in the least amount of time. Private classes enable the instructor to teach the lessons in the order that will optimize learning and to adapt techniques to suit an individual’s strengths and weaknesses. Each private lesson begins with a review of previously learned techniques, followed by the introduction of 2-3 new techniques. Once you fully understand the new techniques, the instructor will show you how to combine them with previously learned techniques in a series of Reflex Development Drills. This process continues until you have mastered all the techniques in the module.

Private classes offer maximum flexibility with daytime, evenings, weekdays, and weekends training opportunities. If it's convenient for you, it works for us. Moreover, if you can’t come to the Gracie Academy, we’ll come to you!


Most martial arts schools limit you to only one free trial class. At the Gracie Academy, we offer new students a 10-day free trial that includes a free uniform and unlimited access to all of our beginner group classes. We’re confident that the class structure, the camaraderie, and high quality instruction will convince you to let us guide you on your path jiu-jitsu mastery. If it’s not exactly what you are looking for, we will never charge you a penny (the only requirement is that you return the free uniform that we provided to you).

To take advantage of our 10-day free trial, or to schedule an introductory private class with a certified instructor, please contact our Student Services Department by phone (310) 553-0500 or by email:
