Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Milwaukee is a full-time Certified Training Center teaching Gracie Jiu-Jitsu to the exacting standards of the Gracie family. The academy was founded on the principles that make Gracie Jiu-Jitsu the most universally applicable form of self-defense available. Speed, strength, and flexibility are absolutely not per-requisites but instead, our techniques rely on leverage, timing, and natural body movements, which anyone can do!

The most common feedback we get from students after trying a few classes is how surprised they were at the friendly and warm atmosphere where the emphasis is on learning. Most share that they were afraid to just walk in to the door, expecting to be thrown into a cage to fight for their lives against a big and scary tough guy. Nothing could be further from the truth and we wanted this video to show that.

We want everyone to know that if you think you're too old, you're not. If you think you're too out of shape, you're not. If you think can't do it, you can! Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is a simple and effective self-defense for men, women, and children from all walks of life. No matter who you are, where you've come from or where you're going, there is a place for you here. We can't wait to share the mat with you!
