Train for Free from September 29 - October 4 in Jiu-Jitsu Heaven!

Grand Master Helio Gracie was born October 1, 1913. To celebrate his legacy, we are inviting all practitioners, regardless of age, skill level or affiliation, to come spend the entire week with us in Jiu-Jitsu Heaven for free. On Wednesday, October 1, we will have a free seminar and a special banquet dinner and we hope you can join us!

Free Gracie Academy Training All Week
All visiting students, from all affiliations, are welcome to train for free in all regular group classes at the Gracie Academy in Torrance for the entire week! Mat space is limited so you must reserve your spot in advance.

Free Helio Gracie Day Seminar
On Wednesday, October 1, all regular classes will be cancelled. Instead, Rorion, Ryron and Rener will host a special 3-hour seminar, from 10am - 1pm, in which they will teach the most important techniques and principles they ever learned from the Grandmaster.

Helio Gracie Banquet Dinner
On the evening of October 1, we will come together for a special meal celebrating Helio Gracie. The banquet will take place at the Cheesecake Factory in Redondo Beach. The cost is $65 per person, and only 85 spots are available.
