Scroll to Bottom for Program Descriptions

We’re certified to teach Gracie Bullyproof®! Gracie Jiu-Jitsu’s Bullyproof® system is a non-violent, self-defense program that instills in your child the confidence, awareness and ability to stand up for themselves.

Full members receive the ability to attend ANY Certified Training Center (CTC) world wide and get credit for the courses taken and receive online access to the entire Gracie Bullyproof program taught by Ryron and Rener Gracie!

As long as your child can work comfortably together with another child in an "up close and personal" activity such as grappling, they're good to go!

Character Development 
(Little Champs and Jr Grapplers)


The greatest value in martial arts training is not in learning how to fight, but rather in developing the best of your character and sharing it with others. To ensure that your child cultivates the highest level of discipline, integrity, and honor on their Jiu-Jitsu journeys, we have implemented the Gracie Character Development Program. The 12-month program is comprised of six chapters. During each Jiu-Jitsu class we spend a few minutes discussing the featured character trait and point out the simple things they can do to “activate the trait” in their daily lives.

Every two months, we host an ultra-fun party called Gracie Game Day for all the kids who’ve shown significant progress in developing the featured character trait. To qualify for Gracie Game Day, your child must score AGE x 100 points (for example, a 7-year-old child must score 700 points). Join the family to learn more!

Little Champs (Ages 5 - 8)

Jr. Grapplers (Ages 9 - 12)

The Little Champs program is for kids 5-8 years old. Using our time-tested “Gracie Games,” we teach the Little Champs basic self-defense techniques while instilling the foundational principles of leverage and control. The secret to the success of this program is that we make the lessons so fun that the kids beg for more! Once a child masters all ten Gracie Games, they advance to the Jr. Grapplers program.

In the Jr. Grapplers 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!

Black Belt Club

We invite children who excel in the Jr. Grapplers program to join the Black Belt Club. This is our most advanced youth jiu-jitsu program and joining the Black Belt Club is the highest honor for any youth Gracie Jiu-Jitsu practitioner. Kids in this program possess all the traits necessary for success on the path to black belt: discipline, respect, courage, leadership, loyalty, and compassion.

Gracie Game Day

Every two months we host an incredibly fun party called Gracie Game Day for all of the kids who demonstrate, both on and off the mats, significant strides in the featured character trait (see above).

It's an invite only party.  How your child qualifies is above but equally important is for parents to look out for emails and/or texts so that they know the exact date and can reach out to see if their child has been focused in class and verify that they have exhibited the relevant trait outside of class.
