Hilarious Video: Ed ONeills VERY First Class

June 9, 2011

Like the techniques of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, the teaching methods used at the Gracie Academy and at all Certified Training Centers around the world have been developed and refined over three generations. One of the most unique aspects of the Gracie teaching methodology is the "10-Minute Intro." This is the process we use to introduce a brand new student to the magnificence of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu in only 10 minutes. When executed correctly, not only does the 10-Minute Intro cause the student to fall in love with Gracie Jiu-Jitsu in the absolute least amount of time possible, but it creates a memory that literally lasts a lifetime.

The video below is evidence of the lifelong impact this special intro class has on its recipients. During the last Gracie Academy Instructor Certification Program, Emmy Award winning actor, Ed O'Neill, shares his memory of the "10-Minute Intro" with a group of instructor candidates. The thoroughness and hilariousness of his recollection will cause you to laugh out loud at least five times, guaranteed. If you have a friend who has been pondering the thought of starting Gracie Jiu-Jitsu for a while but hasn't taken action, show them this video and they should be sold.
