We are the only Royce Gracie Jiu Jitsu School in the Triad. Gracie Jiu Jitsu is a martial art, combat sport, and a complete self-defense system. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu came to international prominence in the martial arts community in the early 1990's when Black belt Royce Gracie won the first, second and fourth Ultimate Fighting Championships.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu focuses on grappling and ground fighting to promote the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger assailant using leverage. Often this includes, taking the fight to the ground and applying joint-locks and chokeholds to defeat the opponent. Gracie Jiu Jitsu training is used by the average person everyday for self-defense, law enforcement and military combatives, mixed martial arts (MMA) competitions and sport grappling tournaments (gi and no-gi). Non-compliant sparring (commonly referred to as “rolling”) and repetitive drilling play a major role in training.
