Gracie Immersion Camp Deadline: April 15

January 23, 2013

3 Months Left to Register for the Ultimate Family Jiu-Jitsu Vacation

"Amazing" hardly describes the incredible experience we had at the 2012 Gracie Immersion Camp on the Emerald Coast. It was so incredible, that we've decided to do it again this year! If you missed us in 2012, don't make the same mistake twice. Bring your entire family and join the Gracie family for a long weekend of jiu-jitsu, beach fun, and fine dining at the Sandestin Luxury Beach Resort in beautiful Destin, Florida! We have a limited number of rooms blocked off for the Gracie Group, and like last year, they will sell out months in advance - so don't wait!

Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Technique in the Morning - Sparring/Open Mat in the Evening
Every day will start with a two-hour Gracie Jiu-Jitsu seminar. Seminar participants will be separated by age and experience level so that the instruction can be customized to each students' individual needs. There will be Gracie Combatives for beginners, Master Cycle for advanced students, Women Empowered for the ladies, and Gracie Bullyproof for the kids - ages 4 and up. There will also be open mat training sessions every afternoon for those who have the energy and desire to drill technique, spar, or simply connect with jiu-jitsu fanatics from around the world more.

Beach Fun During the Day
Simply put, we reserve every afternoon for fun in the sun. Join the Gracies for fun beach activities such as volleyball, ocean kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, boogie boarding, wave runners, and a very cool game called "chapinha" which was invented by Rorion on the beaches of Rio de Janeiro! And if you get tired of the beach, you can walk over to Sandestin's Village of Baytowne Wharf where they have tons of cool activities for all ages such as rock-climbing, zip-lining, and a crazy rope course more.

Fine Dining and Exciting Nightlife
The Village of Baytowne Wharf is the "heart and soul" of the Sandestin Luxury Beach Resort. It's a gathering place for everyone visitin
