What is Gracie Jiu-Jitsu?
Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is a complete martial art made up of Standing Self Defense Techniques, Striking Techniques, Takedowns, Ground Techniques, and Philosophy. Techniques are designed to give an average person the chance to survive an attack from a bigger and stronger aggressor. For this reason, the techniques are based on leverage and technique rather than physical attributes such as speed and strength. The Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Philosophy is based around the Five Keys of Health: Rational Nutrition, Sensible Exercise, Efficient Rest, Proper Hygiene, and a Positive Attitude.
