Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is for everyone! At the Gracie Appleton Certified Training Center, we offer specialized programs for the entire family: Gracie Bullyproof for kids (ages 7-13), Women Empowered for ladies only, Gracie Combatives for beginner adults/teen, and the Master Cycle for advanced adults.
Along with the development of a formalized curriculum, a standardized teaching methodology, and an interactive online learning center, came the opportunity for dedicated students and martial artists from around the world to join the Gracie Academy in its quest to make the complete Gracie Jiu-Jitsu curriculum available to students around the globe in accordance to the exacting standards of Grand Master Helio Gracie.
”To learn to fight, you shouldn’t have to fight to learn.” - Ryron and Rener Gracie
“Self-defense is not just a set of techniques; it’s a state of mind, and it begins with the belief that you are worth defending.” - Rorion Gracie
Adults & Teens Ages 13 and Up
Ladies Ages 13 and Up
Women Empowered is the official Gracie self-defense program for women. In this 10-lesson program, we will teach you how to neutralize the 15 most common attacks ranging from having your hair grabbed to being pinned to the ground by a weapon-bearing assailant.
For Kids Ages 7 - 13 years old
In the Jr. Grapplers Bullyproof program, we focus on 33 non-violent self-defense techniques that teach children to “neutralize and negotiate” with the bullies. Verbal assertiveness strategies are a major portion of this curriculum. A child needs absolutely no experience to start, and we guarantee a noticeable increase in your child’s confidence within a few weeks!
