Our Story

Opening in October 2014, Baltimore Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is a certified training center of the Gracie Academy in Torrance, California, offering practical self-defense training and authentic Gracie Jiu-Jitsu classes.

Owner Nick Tissue began training in martial arts as a young child. After graduating college, he began teaching karate at his older brother’s school in 2008. Soon after, he began training judo and jiu-jitsu under Relson Gracie, and opened a school in Towson, MD in 2010. After meeting and training with Rener and Ryron Gracie in 2013, he decided he wanted to open a new school in Baltimore. As a Federal Hill resident for over 6 years, Nick realized there were no martial arts schools in the city, and he wanted to bring his love for jiu-jitsu to his community. A year later Baltimore Gracie Jiu-Jitsu came to be.

Nick wanted to shy away from the traditional competition-style schools and with the mindset that anyone can do jiu-jitsu, Baltimore Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is a very family-friendly school, with classes for kids, adults, women, beginners, and veterans.

For youth students, learn healthy habits and self-defense through fun games. For beginner students, a structured step-by-step learning process will have you mastering the fundamental techniques quickly. For the more advanced practitioner, a rotating curriculum which teaches all the techniques you will need to be able to protect yourself against skilled opponents, weapons, or prepare you for competition.

Our goal is to provide everyone in our community a safe and friendly environment to learn practical self-defense. We hope to train with you soon!
