Relson Gracie Jiu-Jitsu North Carolina

One of the oldest established Gracie Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) Academies in North Carolina. Dedicated to teaching the art of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu to the entire family.

New Years Special for new students!!!! It’s a great time to start training Jiu-Jitsu with this special. Whether it’s to learn how to defend yourself or just get into better shape.

When new students sign up; if you pay for two months, you will get the 2nd month for half price. If you purchase 3 months, you will get the 3rd month free. On top of that the 1st week of training is FREE!!!! So if you thought about training in Jiu-Jitsu, this is the time.

This NEW YEARS SPECIAL is good until the end of February!!!!

The Cranford Brothers have fallen in love with Jiu-Jitsu. At NAGA Myrtle Beach, the two little sharks competed and earned their place on the podium. Shhhhh! Don’t tell anyone but their parents even bought mats for them to roll at home. The most important thing is that they had fun and fought through 1st tournament nerves. I am so so proud of them. The Cranford’s have raised some awesome kids. #relsongracienc #relsongraciejiujitsu #bjj4life #bjj4ever #bjj #kidsjiujitsu #graciejiujitsu @ Relson Gracie Jiu-Jitsu North Carolina
