Gracie Jiu-Jitsu 101: The Philosophy

REAL WORLD RESULTS

“I came across Gracie Phoenix when I was looking for true self defense. I was struggling and skeptical. The support I found, the empowerment I experienced, and the commitment to detailed teaching, is like none other. My journey through the Combatives program impacted me so much, I decided to become an instructor so I could share with others! I am proud to be a part of this community.”

“My 7-year old son has been going here for about a year now. He has been involved in many youth organizations and I have to say, without a doubt, this is THE most well-run of them all. Coach Adam and his team are dedicated to all of the students, youth and adult. The staff’s commitment, compassion, and care for everyone who walks through the door is evident in everything they do. When a new student is introduced, Coach Adam tells the class what the student’s name is and then asks “How do we treat him/her?” And in unison, the class replies …LIKE FAMILY. Integrity, manners, respect, caring, and good citizenship are concepts the students are rewarded for constantly displaying. My son is an only child so we have him involved in many things. This is, BY FAR, the best thing he does. In closing, my family owes Coach Adam and his amazing staff a huge thank you for the level of effort and commitment they bring to the mat everyday.”

“I was blessed the day I found Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Phoenix. The feeling that came over my body the first time I flipped Adam (instructor) over and I ended up on top was pure joy. I felt accomplished and safe! I was so happy. That day changed my life. And I’ve been on the mat almost every day since then. Learning how to Truly defend myself against an attacker has brought me more happiness than I’ve ever imagined. Something I am forever grateful for. I recommend Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Phoenix to everyone. Men, women and kids can learn so much from this school. My 5 yr old is in the Bullyproof program and loves it! I love it because she’s learning how to defend herself against bullies and strangers (badguys). She knows how to get away. Something every parent should want their kids to know. She’s more aware of her surroundings and she knows what to do in a scary Situation. She’s learning respect, manners, discipline, about health etc. I am so proud of her and all that she’s learned.”
