By far the most popular program, Gracie Combatives is comprised of 36 techniques that have been applied more times by a GJJ practitioner during a real street fight than all other techniques combined. These 36 techniques are divided into 23 one hour long classes, and can be taken in any order. This course is designed to give anyone the skills necessary to survive an attack against a larger, stronger and more athletic opponent. You will receive a combatives card to track your progress along the journey so that you know where you stand at all times. Finish each class twice and you are ready to participate in the reflex development program, after you complete 20 classes you will receive a stripe. After all 36 techniques have been completed three times, and you feel ready, you may test for your combatives belt. Upon completion of the curriculum and earning your combatives belt you will be allowed into master cycle to earn your official blue belt and continue growing as a practitioner of Jiu-Jitsu.
