In the late 1920s Grand Master Helio Gracie started developing Gracie or
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu after he realized that he was too frail to utilize
the traditional Japanese Jiu-Jitsu techniques. Over the past 80 years,
Gracie Jiu-Jitsu has proven to be the most reliable system for a smaller
person to defeat a larger, more athletic opponent. The techniques of
Gracie Jiu-Jitsu are based on precise timing and effective use of
leverage so that virtually anyone can do them, man or woman, regardless
of their age, strength or athletic ability.
Jiu-Jitsu consists of over 600 techniques, studies of the 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 others
combined. Originally developed for the U.S. Army, Gracie Combatives is
the only course entirely dedicated to the mastery of these 36 essential
Beyond blue belt, Gracie Jiu-Jitsu consists of hundreds of advanced
techniques organized into a clearly defined, systematic curriculum
called the Master Cycle. The Master Cycle’s unique structure simplifies
the journey to black belt by organizing all of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu into
seven positional chapters (Mount, Side Mount, Guard, Half Guard, Back
Mount, Leg Locks, Standing), each of which is studied for several months
before moving on to the next chapter. If you've achieved the rank of
blue belt or higher, and you would like to continue on the path to black
belt in a safe, structured, and friendly learning environment, the
Master Cycle is for you!

The Three Steps to Success
Step 1: Learn the Techniques
36 Combatives Techniques have been divided into 23 one-hour classes so
you can complete the course at your own pace. The lessons were
strategically designed so that you can complete the course at your own
pace with no need for prior experience to participate in any one of
them. As a result, you can complete them in any order, and as many times
as you wish. Upon enrolling, we will issue you a Gracie Combatives Card
on which we will track your progress through the 36 techniques. Each
month, you will receive a Gracie Combatives Calendar identifying which
techniques we will teach on each day of the month.
Step 2: Develop Your Reflexes
you have completed each lesson twice, you will qualify to participate
in the Reflex Development Classes. In these lessons we focus on building
your reflexes in the execution of all 36 techniques in every possible
combination and at various levels of intensity.
Step 3: Earn Your Blue Belt
you have complete all of the Gracie Combatives lessons three times, and develop your reflexes in the execution of all 36 techniques individually and in every possible combination, you will qualify to take the blue belt qualification test.
