What an amazing experience! Thank You Gracie Jiu -Jitsu Phoenix! We are pumped to get our first stripe!
Anybody else notice this:
Ok, I think these are the right video. It seems like the originals were made private. Can't find the one with Ryron commentary that is still an active link.

I think this is the video that we were talking about in class today; without any commentary. I'll keep looking for those as well.

We all know Saied KEEPS IT REAL AT GJJ
I'm gonna be at the conditioning class in the morning. If there is a move you wanted to try on a big guy; come to class and after I'm down for being your uke(as long as Adam is cool with it).
Another great conditioning class this morning. Thanks again. 🤙

Immunity Supplements for Kids | Protect Kids from Coronavirus!

Hello Friends!

About two weeks ago our friend, training partner, and founder of the Fit Father Project, Dr. Anthony Balduzzi produced an excellent video about COVID-19. I shared that video on my personal page and sent it out in an email to the GJJPHX community. In return, I received very positive feedback.

In follow up with the good doctor, I mentioned that I wish there was something on kids and their immunity. I explained that although I very much recognize that every child, just like every adult, has different needs based on a myriad of factors... I felt it was surprising as to how difficult it was to find fundamental and basic guidelines for parents to reference when working to understand and build up their child's immunity in today's world. In response to this conversation, he offered to do a video on this subject.

I am very appreciative that Dr. Balduzzi took time out of his schedule to create this for our community and I hope that those of you with children interested in this subject find it helpful.

Please take a few moments to also check out our friend's amazing companies - Fit Father Project - Fitness For Busy Fathers and The Fit Mother Project.

Thank you!

GU Classes Cancelled

We are extremely disappointed and saddened to announce that beginning tomorrow March 14th all group classes are temporarily cancelled. The cancellation of group classes will run through March 31st.

We ask that all students and parents check their emails for a full explanation and details of what will be available in the interim.

Thank you to everyone who has already reached out with such positivity, understanding, and incredible support for the school in the light of this very unfortunate situation.

Although the circumstances in California are slightly different, and this is an incredibly difficult decision to make, we believe based on the direction of health officials and the large and growing number of local public and charter schools and districts that are closing, this is the most responsible thing to do at this time.

We wish the very best to and for all of our GJJPHX friends and family in this unprecedented time and thank you for your support.

Below is a video from Rener, detailing what will be available for all of our students during this temporary closure.

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the temporary cancellation of all Gracie University HQ group classes starting this Monday, March 16, 2020 through M...


Gracie Breakdown

There is something deeply rewarding about being a part of a community that gives back and empowers others in a unique way.

This story below comes out of our world headquarters at Gracie University. It is one story of many that exemplifies why our instructors put so much time into what we do, believe in what we do, and why we are so grateful to do it.

Being witness to the kind of growth and healing that happens for students of all ages while training Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is truly one of the greatest aspects of being an instructor.

It is inspiring to see Luis come out on top after such a disgusting and violent attack. Luis, your positive attitude and dedication to your training is a lesson for all of us!

As Certified Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Instructors, we are truly privileged to have one of the greatest jobs in the world.

#bullyproof #gjjphx #greatestjobintheworld #kidsareourfuture #bettereveryday

On September 10, 2019, 12-year-old Luis was violently assaulted at Lakeland Middle School in Florida. Upon seeing the video, Ryron and Rener Gracie invited Luis and his family to California for one week of intensive Gracie Bullyproof jiu-jitsu training at Gracie University headquarters. The family accepted the offer, and exactly 36 days after the incident they made it to Jiu-jitsu Heaven. This video documents their experience.

A VERY special thanks to everyone who donated to make this possible. Not only did Luis get the training that will change his life forever, but your donations made it possible for the family to enjoy several other memorable experiences, including that trip to Disneyland! 🙏🏼

With the surplus of funds raised we will be able to sponsor 3 bullying victims to attend this year’s Gracie Bullyproof Summer Camp (July 20-24 at Gracie University HQ). To be considered for this sponsorship please send an email with your child’s story to [email protected], and we will select the sponsorship recipients in the coming months. For more info about the camp, visit 🙏🏼 02/07/2020

3 Jiu-Jitsu Hairstyles That Will Keep Your Hair Secure While Rolling

The amazing benefits of cold showers

Cold showers are the WORST! ... Or are they?

More and more information has become available in reference to the therapeutic value and health benefits of ice baths, cryotherapy, and even simply taking cold showers. Many of our students have shared that they find faster muscular recovery, higher levels of energy, and improved overall wellness when using cold water therapies and ice baths in their personal routines. Here is a quick article from Form about some of the benefits and one strategy to begin integrating it. Cold Showers can sound terrifying if you’ve never done one, like a taste of icy hell; but they sure sound amazing if you’re a veteran. But did you know that col

5 Reasons Why Women Should Train Jiu Jitsu (That Aren’t For Self Defense)

This article is a few years old but the contents remain true.

The women that train Jiu-Jitsu around the world and at our school are truly remarkable. There are excellent points made in this article showcasing some of the amazing and empowering things that happen for many women who train.

Ladies who are not training yet - We invite you to come join us on the mat whenever you are ready. Our door and mat is always open to you!

#womenempowered #empoweredwomen #gjjphx The number-one reason women are usually given for why they should train jiu jitsu is “because it teaches you how to protect yourself.” There’s a good reason for it: jiu jitsu is designed for weaker, smaller opponents to dominate larger ones using technique rather than strength. Being as a woma...
