Are you dealing with
You may not want to fight, but sometimes it’s unavoidable.
You’re worried that you’ll panic if you’re attacked.
Learning to defend yourself can result in injuries.
Jiu Jitsu is an effective fighting technique...
They don’t address the proper techniques for self-defense in real-world situations. What you learn on the mat should translate to the rest of your life.
The key is learning proven self-defense techniques in a safe and supportive environment that encourages discipline and empowerment.
Results and growth with every class!
Gracie Combatives is a cycle of 23 self-defense classes that teaches the 36 most useful Brazilian Jiu Jitsu moves, so you can use them to defend yourself. You’ll learn the basics, then you’ll learn how to combine them to de-escalate fights when possible, and disable your attacker when necessary.
Learn the 36 Most Effective Moves
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu consists of more than 600 moves that may be used in combination either in sparring or in self-defense. We’ve identified the moves that work the best in real combat and put them into one course.
The moves we teach are appropriate for beginners, but they also work at the highest levels of competition. In other words, what you learn in Gracie Combatives can be the basis for competition if that’s what you want.
Best of all, the moves we teach are designed to be combined to make them more effective. Once you’ve mastered them, you can move on to Reflex Development classes to learn how to combine them.
Learn in a Safe and Secure Environment
One of the most common reasons people quit Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is because they get hurt. Students sometimes say that they feel like they’re walking into enemy territory when they get to the gym.
Gracie Combatives is designed with safety in mind. We believe that you don’t need to hurt each other on the mat to defend yourself in the street.
You’ll learn how to do the best self-defense techniques without hurting yourself in class. In other words, you can save the real combat for the streets – where you’ll need it.
A Proven Structure That Works
Traditional martial arts classes require you to start at the beginning and attend every class to complete your training. We designed Gracie Combatives with convenience in mind.
The basic Gracie Combatives curriculum consists of 23, one-hour classes. In each class, you’ll learn one standing technique and one ground technique.
Best of all, you can start the cycle at any time. As long as you complete all 23 classes in the cycle, you can move toward earning your belt.
Start at Any Age or Fitness Level
One of the core requirements of any self-defense technique is that it should be useful whether you have a martial arts background or not – and whether you’re already in great shape or not.
The Gracie Combatives curriculum is a beginner curriculum. Even if you’ve never stepped on a mat before, you can start with any class and work your way through it.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu teaches you how to use your opponent’s body weight and momentum to defend yourself, so you can put the moves to work at any fitness level or age.
Great atmosphere. The other students are friendly and happy to work with you from day one. Mix of experienced martial arts practitioners and complete newbies. Everyone is concerned about preventing injuries. I've experienced no problems with egos creating issues.
Mostly male classes, but when females attend they aren't treated differently. You won't have to worry about no one wanting to practice with you, or someone creepy always wanting practice with you. Everyone is respectful of their fellow students regardless of gender. I would feel comfortable with my wife attending classes alone here.
Knowledgeable staff who genuinely want you to succeed. If your willing to show up and work they will teacher you what you need to know to defend yourself. I still have a long way to go, but feel I'm already much more capable of defending myself then I was when I started. Stop reading and give them a call :)
Visiting salt lake and decided to drop in and pay these guys a visit. They were super welcoming, with fantastic technique and super clean facility. Can’t wait to visit again
I've been going to Gracie SLC for 4+ months now between 3-5 times per week in their beginner combatives program. I love it. The instructors are great, friendly and competent. Jiu Jitsu is fun! This is a great place to start.
