Gracie Combatives50/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. Originally developed for the U.S. Army, Gracie Combatives is the only course that entirely dedicated to the mastery of these 36 essential techniques.

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.

Manlio Schiavo

Manlio Schiavo has been teaching Martial Arts for over 20 years, beginning with Wado Ryu & Kickboxing. Manlio had heard of other Martial Arts claiming to be “effective” but he has always been in search of the best self-defense system against a bigger, stronger opponent. Manlio discovered Gracie Jiu-Jitsu and its effectiveness while watching Royce Gracie in the early years of the UFC. Finally, Manlio came across Gracie University, which gave him the opportunity to learn this beautiful art from the true source from the other side of the globe. Manlio earned his Blue Belt in May 2014 and graduated from the Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Academy Instructor Certification Program in January 2015. Manlio is pleased to be teaching Gracie Combatives and Gracie Bullyproof at the 1st Certified Training Center in Italy – Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Vallo della Lucania!
