Edmonton Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Gracie Academy

Alberta's official Level 3 Gracie Academy Certified Training Center!

Edmonton Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is a Level 3 Gracie Certified Training Center in Alberta recognized by the founding family line of the late Grand Master Helio Gracie. Our mission is to provide the most effective self-defense instruction in the world by giving students the elements to defend themselves in real life, with the use of leverage and timing over speed and strength against a bigger/stronger opponent. We have an open door policy for beginners and experienced martial artists!

Gracie Bullyproof®
-Little Champs (Ages 5 to 7)
-Junior Grapplers (Ages 8 to 14)
With the Gracie Bullyproof system you will empower your child with the verbal strategies to stand up to bullies with unshakable confidence, and a series of non-violent self-defense techniques to keep them safe if they are physically attacked. Gracie Bullyproof has already been featured on NBC, CNN, and Oprah.com as an effective counter-measure to bullying. The program is engaging, fun, and will ensure that your son or daughter does not have to go through life at the mercy of tormenting bullies.

Gracie Combatives®
Since its inception, Gracie Combatives has been more effective at taking students from no knowledge to “street ready” than any other course in the history of Gracie or Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. What makes Gracie Combatives so unique, besides the street applicability of its techniques, is the structure of the course and the way in which we present the techniques. In place of the random curriculum that characterizes nearly all other BJJ programs, Gracie Combatives is designed to ensure that each new student understands the principles, learns the techniques, and builds their reflexes, without confusion, in the absolute least amount of time!

Master Cycle®
Beyond blue belt, Gracie Jiu-Jitsu consists of hundreds of advanced techniques, all of which have been organized into a clearly defined, systematic curriculum called the Master Cycle. In order to streamline the learning process, we have divided all the techniques in the Master Cycle into seven Positional Chapters: Mount, Side Mount, Guard, Half Guard, Back Mount, Leg Locks, and Standing. Several months are dedicated to the study of each chapter before moving on to the next. Each time a student recycles through the 7 chapters they have the chance to learn new techniques as well as strengthen and expand their foundation of existing skills. This cyclic process continues for several years until the student becomes a master in every position of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, one of several perquisites for promotion to black belt.

Women Empowered®
Women Empowered is the official Gracie self-defense program for women. In this 10-lesson program, we will teach you how to neutralize the 15 most common attacks ranging from having your hair grabbed to being pinned to the ground by a weapon-bearing assailant. Each one-hour Women Empowered lesson addresses two techniques. You can start the program at any time and participate in any class without previous experience. Unlike most self-defense systems that rely heavily on strength, speed, and coordination, the techniques in the Women Empowered program employ leverage, technique, and timing, so anyone, regardless of age or athletic ability, can make them work against larger opponents. Once you complete the Women Empowered program, you may test for promotion to Pink Belt!
