About Gracie Jiu-Jitsu
Jiu-Jitsu translates as ‘The Gentle Art’, placing importance on understanding body mechanics, leverage, movement and timing, over strength and brute force. Through understanding these principles Gracie Jiu-Jitsu teaches students to utilise their body and mind together in the most efficient way possible to eliminate size, age or athletic advantages of an attacker. The Art always assumes that your opponent is bigger stronger, and fitter than you. It uses the opponents energy to then be used against them.

This makes studying Jiu-Jitsu very much an academic pursuit and engages the minds and bodies of participants at the same time. Meaning students get fitter and have fun during the process. Our style is practiced in a safe, controlled and co-operative environment, highly conducive to learning.
Gracie Jiu-Jitsu places ultimate emphasis on staying safe through various holds, takedowns and locks, meaning it teaches you to control a situation and stay safe from damaging blows without necessarily harming the other person. This means self defence through Jiu-Jitsu, is not fighting, but rather anti-fighting, it’s goal is purely to keep you safe.

The Art received its name due to the Gracie family’s contributions to Jiu-Jitsu after learning the style from Mitsuya Maeda. Helio Gracie, growing up much smaller and weaker in his youth, was unable to exert strength over anyone and became known for his defensive mindset to Jiu-Jitsu and his adage “if you can’t lose, you can only win”. This mentality is taught today in many Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Schools around the world and forms the basis of the Gracie Jiu-Jitsu method of self-defence.
