Although Gracie Jiu-Jitsu consists of over 600 techniques, studies of the fights conducted by members of the Gracie Family have shown that 36 techniques have been used more often, and with greater success, than all the others combined. Originally developed for the U.S. Army, Gracie Combatives is the only course that entirely dedicated to the mastery of these 36 essential techniques. After students perfects all the Gracie Combatives techniques individually, they qualify to participate in weekly Reflex Development Classes were they learn how to execute them in various combinations. Once a student masters all the techniques in every combination, they qualify to be tested for promotion to blue belt.

The Master Cycle$140/month
Unlimited

Beyond blue belt, Gracie Jiu-Jitsu consists of hundreds of advanced techniques, all of which have been organized into a clearly defined, systematic curriculum called the Master Cycle. In order to streamline the learning process, we have divided all the techniques in the Master Cycle into seven Positional Chapters: Mount, Side Mount, Guard, Half Guard, Back Mount, Leg Locks, and Standing. Several months are dedicated to the study of each chapter before moving on to the next. Each time a student recycles through the 7 chapters they have the chance to learn new techniques as well as strengthen and expand their foundation of existing skills. This cyclic process continues for several years until the student becomes a master in every position of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, one of several perquisites for promotion to black belt.
