Gracie Combatives$150/Month

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.

The Master Cycle$180/Month

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.

Little Champs (Ages 5-7)$130/Month

The Little Champs program is for kids 5-7 years old (we offer private lessons for children ages 3-4). Using our time-tested “Gracie Games,” we teach the Little Champs basic self-defense techniques while instilling the foundational principles of leverage and control. The secret to the success of this program is that we make the lessons so fun that the kids beg for more! Once a child masters all ten Gracie Games, they advance to the Jr. Grapplers program.

Kyle FitzPatrick

I was born on October 3rd, 1990 in Long Beach, NY. I have a twin sister and three brothers; we are a very close family who train Gracie Jiu-Jitsu together. While growing up I was active in many team sports such as baseball, football, lacrosse, soccer, basketball, wrestling and track. All of which I started around the age of 5; it wasn’t until I was 10 years old when I was introduced to Martial Arts. After achieving my Brown Belt in Kenpo Karate, I took a break from Martial Arts to focus on my studies and athletics during my Varsity years in high school, continuing into college. I believe it was a smart move, due to the various awards and honors I achieved. Due to external circumstances, I had to step away from my college studies. I grew up with a fondness to help others with personal training, in doing so I earned my AAPTE Certification and became a health fitness instructor. I have a true desire to teach and implement what it takes to reach a healthy balanced lifestyle. Once I received my AAPTE Certification, I started to explore other Martial Arts and discovered Gracie University. Training with my father, I started to really love the Gracie techniques and all it has to offer. Intrigued with the teaching methodologies, I enrolled in the Instructor Certification Program and graduated in July 2013. Coupled with this great achievement, I also graduated from college earning Deans List honors as well as National placement in the 100M & 200M in Track and Field. I opened a Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Certified Training Center in Long Beach, New York in October 2013. If you are in town, please stop by, I look forward to meeting you!
