Gracie Combatives is our beginner program for adults. In this program, you will learn the 36 core techniques of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu in a fun, safe, and cooperative environment.
When you learn online at Gracie Bahrain, you can go through the curriculum at your own speed, and you have total control over your training schedule.
The quality of instruction varies from one jiu-jitsu academy to the next. Through Gracie Bahrain you can be sure that you are receiving instruction with the highest regard for the founding principles of street applicability, energy efficiency, and natural body movements.
The order in which you learn the techniques of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu greatly affects the time it takes for you to master the art. As a Gracie University student, you will learn every technique in the exact order that you would experience in live private lessons with Ryron or Rener Gracie.
Training injuries are most likely to occur when you are practicing with someone who is more concerned with victory than with safety. By learning online and training with a select group of trusted friends and family members, you avoid the tough-guy, egocentric environment that is so commonly associated with mixed martial arts.
dynamic reflex development
Gracie Bahrain, through its online training site Gracie University is the only online training site that introduces each new technique through a series of simplified presentations known as Technical Slices. These Slices are carefully joined with Reflex Development Drills and Fight Simulation Drills so that you begin building reflexes in the execution of the techniques, individually in combination with other related techniques, right away! In other words, we don't just show you the techniques, we teach you how to build muscle memory and make them your own!
learn to teach
Over the last 90 years, members of the Gracie Family have dedicated as much time to perfecting their teaching methodologies as they have to perfecting their chokes. If you are an instructor, or a student who aspires to teach one day, use these lessons to fine tune your teaching skills so that you can more effectively share your knowledge with others.
The price for the online courses has been set as low as possible, and with so many convenient subscription plans to choose from, anyone in the world can learn Gracie Jiu-Jitsu as long as they have the discipline and the dedication to put in the mat time.
Our mat is swept and sanitized twice a day at Gracie Bahrain for the protection of our students. Believe it or not, many jiu-jitsu schools spend several weeks without sanitizing their mats, and students contract a variety of skin infections as a result. When learning from home with a trusted group of friends, you can give proper hygiene the attention it deserves since you will have full control over the cleaning/sanitation of your training area.
