Every GRACIE SANTA CRUZ student receives access to GRACIEUNIVERSITY.COM, an interactive online training video archive with every technique in the gracie arsenal.
As a result of teaching self-defense to thousands of students for nearly a century, the Gracie Family has discovered that the order in which you learn the techniques of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu greatly affects the amount of time it takes you to master the art. They found that a student who learns the techniques in random order in group classes is constantly feeling overwhelmed and confused, whereas one who learns them in the logically defined, linear format of private classes grasps the principles more effectively, builds reflexes more rapidly, and never feels left behind.
As a Gracie University student, we will guide you through the complete Gracie Jiu-Jitsu curriculum, from Gracie Combatives through the Master Cycle, in the exact order used in private classes at the Gracie University. You can access Gracie University’s fully interactive online video courses from any computer or mobile device anywhere in the world to learn all the techniques at your own pace.

We offer new students a 10-day risk-free trial that includes a free uniform and unlimited access to all of our beginner group classes. We’re confident that the class structure, the camaraderie, and high quality instruction will convince you to let us guide you on your path to jiu-jitsu mastery. If it’s not exactly what you are looking for, we will never charge you a penny (the only requirement is that you return the free uniform that we provided to you).
