Gracie Jiu-Jitsu®

The Most Effective Martial Art
On The Planet

"At Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Fredericksburg, we don’t just teach people how to fight, we give people the confidence so they never need to."

Although Gracie or Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ)® is the most effective martial art on planet, it is a relatively young martial art. Lacking a standardized curriculum, it is common practice, at BJJ schools around the world, for techniques to be presented in complete randomness. 

Each day, the instructor shows up to class, having no clue what to teach, and asks the students: “What do you guys want to do?” as if the students know better than he does, as to what should be practiced. Learning in such an unorganized environment can be extremely frustrating and overwhelming. 

New students almost always feel left behind since the techniques are usually tailored to meet the needs of the more advanced students. In most cases, students experience a sensation known as “Technique Overload” and end up quitting within 3 to 5 months of enrolling, and when they do, the instructor believes that the student’s lack of discipline is to blame. 

What they fail to realize is that when a student quits, the problem lies not within the work ethic of the student, or the techniques of the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, but within the format in which BJJ is being taught.

World Class Curriculum

What We Offer

Structured Learning

Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is for everyone, but only if taught correctly. While most BJJ schools have taken a “one-size-fits-all” approach to teaching the art, Gracie Jiu-Jitsu has gone to great lengths to create specific programs for each demographic.

Safe Training Environment

Safety is our number one priority. In far too many BJJ schools, the classes are structured to meet the needs of the most elite students. If you are a beginner student, you are expected to serve as a “grappling dummy” for those above you. We take the opposite approach.

Street Defense

Street self-defense remains the top priority throughout all of our training programs. From your very first class, every technique you learn is specifically chosen due to it’s like likelihood of being used, and proven effectiveness, in real combat.
