Private lessons by appointment. Gracie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Gracie Combatives, Bullyproof and Women's only Self-Defense, for ages 7 and up

We offer Gracie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Gracie Combatives, Bullyproof and Women's only Self-Defense, for ages 7 and up (some classes/programs are age restricted). Martial Arts are not just for self-defense. Like any sport or training program, it can help improve coordination, stamina, strength, flexibility, and more. But beyond the physical benefits, martial arts can also lead to improved concentration, relaxation and reduced stress. Many students also benefit from a greater sense of self-confidence and improved discipline.

Since mid-2018, my daily schedule has consisted of school or work during the day, driving to Torrance for night class at Gracie University, quickly cleaning myself up after class, and driving straight to ...

Gracie Breakdown

Ryron and Rener Gracie answer the 10 most common questions asked by new students prior to their first BJJ class:

1) What's the difference between jiu-jitsu and every other martial art?
2) What if I don't have any previous experience?
3) Do I need to be in shape?
4) What should I wear?
5) Do I need to bow or call someone "sensei?"
6) Can I bring a water bottle and where do I store it?
7) Who will I practice with?
8) Will I get injured or embarrassed?
9) Can I bring a friend to class?
10) How will my first go?

With the uncertainty out of the way, no you have no excuse. Take your first jiu-jitsu class, you won't regret it!

When it comes to where to take your first class, you have 4 options:

1) Find a Certified Training Center at We can personally vouch for these schools because we've personally certified the instructors that own and operate them, the techniques and the friendly culture will mirror what you would find in Torrance. If your intro class at any CTC doesn't exceed all your expectations, you can choke me for free.

2) Find a local BJJ school that isn't a CTC. Just make sure you ask questions to make sure they align with your goals (self-defense, sport, fitness, scheduling, etc), and watch a class before you participate. If you’re not impressed, go to number 3, trying a single class at a poorly operated BJJ school could be a disaster.

3) Learn online through We have tens of thousands of people who are actively learning jiu-jitsu online, from home! All you need is one dedicated training partner and you can learn for as little as $20/month. If you can't find a partner, simple check the online GU Student Database to connect with eager students in your neighborhood!

4) If you're 100% committed and want to get off on the right start, but don't live near a CTC, simply email [email protected] and we can send an instructor to teach you in your house for up to a week straight to jumpstart your jiu-jitsu journey. Bottom line: if you’re ready, we’ll make it happen!

Jiu-jitsu is for you. Stop thinking about it and take your first class!

This Simple Submission Will Leave Your Opponents Terrified Of Ever Doing A Body Triangle Again When you’re a shiny new white belt, one of the first things you’ll get told when you start rolling is “Do not let your opponent take your back.” Not only will it cause you to give up points in a tournament, but getting your back taken also puts you at risk for all sorts of …

What’s makes jiu-jitsu so effective is that you only take what your opponent gives you, essentially “they choose how they lose.” What makes this video so impressive is that @RyronGracie takes what he wants, against 14 cops (from white to black belt, all sizes) even though they know exactly what he is going for. If you were ever lucky enough to get a private class with Ryron and you spent the entire hour on the Trap and Roll, it would be the most important hour of your jiu-jitsu life. 👊🏽

Anyone who’s ready to start jiu-jitsu in the New Year, we got you covered! A full month of unlimited training + Gracie Gi ($300+ value) for only $150! First-time students only and you must start in the month of January! Offer valid in Torrance at Gracie University! If you live within driving distance of Torrance (but not close enough to join us full time), you should take this offer, train with us for a month, so that you have a foundation and you know what to look for in a good school, and then we can recommend a permanent school closer to your home! Bottom line, stop thinking and start doing!
