Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is the only art that gives you a realistic chance of defending yourself against a larger more aggressive attacker. The fundamentals program is our entry level, white to blue belt curriculum. This course is designed to make the student street ready by the time they reach blue belt. We focus on how to deal with the most common self defense situations with proper strategy, timing, technique and leverage. The student will learn the basic philosophy of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu as well as be exposed to basic competition style techniques.
Our mixed levels program has something for everyone. For the beginner who is proficient in the fundamental techniques this class is the next step. The students will learn more expanded self defense techniques as well as develop the skills to deal with another experienced grappler. This class gives students of all levels to be able to train together allowing the beginners to gain experience with higher level jiu-jitsu practitioners and allow the experienced students to learn how to teach and become mentors.
Blue Belt and Above:
This class allows the more experienced students the opportunity to train with other high level students and focus on more advanced grappling and fighting strategies.
Gracie Ohio has a strong history of developing champion competitors and winning multiple state, national and international competitions. This class is designed specifically for jiu-jitsu competition with the gi and without. There is never any pressure to compete at our academy and you do not have to compete to get all the benefits that jiu-jitsu has to offer. But if you are interested in testing yourself in competition then this class is for you. The video below highlights some of the competition class training.
Women’s Self Defense:
Jiu-Jitsu for self defense is our main focus here at Gracie Ohio. Although we feel the best way for any one to learn is with the rest of the students in the fundamentals program, this class is an extension of the curriculum that allows women to train in a female only environment and deals with more specific situations that may be more common for women than men.
