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.

Little Champs (Ages 5-7)$80/Month
3X/Week

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.

The Master Cycle$110/Month
3X/Week

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.

Noel Kauanui

Noel Kauanui

Noel Kauanui graduated from the Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Academy Instructor Certification Program in January 2015. Noel’s and her husband, Ryan Kauanui, own Central Oahu Brazilian Jiu Jitsu located on the island of Oahu, Hawaii in the town of Wahiawa. Our academy is committed to sharing our love of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu with the adults and keiki in our community. Noel got her start in Jiu-Jitsu when Ryan had the opportunity to take ownership of Central Oahu Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, where he had been a student for many years. Noel decided to start training jiu-jitsu since she was going to be spending alot of time there since her and her husband now owned the gym! At the time our academy was not a Gracie Academy Certified Training Center but Ryan had heard about Gracie University; went online and bought the Women Empowered program to start Noel off with a strong foundation. She received her pink belt and loved the program so much that she & Ryan both signed up for the Gracie Combatives program on Gracie University. Once they started they knew that this was something that they needed to share with all of their students. Once Noel received her Blue Belt, she immediately signed up for the Instructor Certification Program and was fortunate enough to be invited to Torrance in January 2015 to train with Rener & Ryron, test, and received her official Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Academy Instructor Certification.
