The Gracie Combatives Program

Gracie Combatives is our beginner program for adults. In this program, you will learn the 36 core techniques of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu in a fun, safe, and cooperative environment. Each one-hour lesson addresses one standing and one ground self-defense technique. You can start the program at any time and participate in any class without previous experience. Upon successful completion of the Gracie Combatives program, you will qualify for advancement to the Master Cycle, our advanced Gracie Jiu-Jitsu program.

If you are unsure about trying martial arts training for fear of injury, embarrassment, or any other reason, then the Gracie Combatives program is for you. Scroll down to learn more about our Gracie Combatives program.

36 Essential Techniques

Although Gracie Jiu-Jitsu consists of over 600 techniques, studies of real 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 other techniques combined. Originally developed for the U.S. Army, Gracie Combatives is the only course that is entirely dedicated to the mastery of these 36 essential techniques. You need absolutely no experience to start this program. Our instructors conduct all classes in a cooperative training environment and are committed to ensuring that every new student has an informative, enjoyable experience regardless of age, gender, or athletic ability.

Learn the Techniques

We have divided the 36 Gracie Combatives techniques into 23 one-hour classes so that you can complete the course at your own pace. We designed each lesson so that you can start at any point in the course. As a result, you can complete the 23 lessons in any order. Upon enrolling, we will issue you a Gracie Combatives attendance card where we will track your progress every step of the way.

Develop Your Reflexes

Once you complete each of the 23 Gracie Combatives lessons twice, you will qualify to participate in the Reflex Development (RD) Classes where you will learn how to combine the 36 techniques to address the most common occurrences in a real fight.

Free Online Access & Satellite Training Privileges

Upon enrolling in the Gracie Combatives program, you will receive a free subscription to GracieUniversity.com. Through this interactive website, you will have access to detailed video instruction on every technique in the course enabling you to study the lessons on any computer or mobile device 24 hours a day! Furthermore, all active students qualify to train at any other Gracie Certified Training Center around the world. Since the curriculum is the same at all Certified Training Centers, you will receive credit for every lesson on your Gracie Combatives attendance card when you return home!
