  • What if I am a beginner?
    No Problem. We see beginners every day and will schedule you for a class that is appropriate for your level of experience. Our adult classes have students of all fitness levels and all ages.
  • What if I don’t have any previous experience?
    No problem! Our beginner programs are specifically designed for first-time jiu-jitsu practitioners and the techniques are always broken down into easy-to-follow steps. Always keeping safety, a priority.
  • Is Jiu-Jitsu safe?
    At our academy, safety is the number one priority. In far too many BJJ schools, the classes are structured to meet the needs of the most elite students. If you are a beginner student, you are expected to serve as a “grappling dummy” for those above you. The thought process is, if you avoid injury, and stick around long enough, you will eventually figure it out. At our academy we take the opposite approach. Firstly, there is no competitive sparring in our beginner programs. As a result, you’ll have a chance to learn all the beginner techniques in a fully-cooperative environment, with like-minded training partners for 8-12 months. Once you move on to the advanced program, and you begin sparring, you will have the benefit of working with training partners of every skill level who are working with you rather than against you. This culture of collaboration and mutual benefit is extremely rare in jiu-jitsu, and we go to great lengths to make sure it is upheld at our academy. All instructors are law enforcement background checked. All adult students names are run against the Colorado Bureau of Investigation sex offender registry. We want a safe training environment for all students.
  • Do I need to be in shape?
    NO. Jiu-Jitsu is the most fun form of fitness. Come train and train some more. You will reach your fitness goals!
  • How will my first class go?
    Hopefully great! Watch the videos for a detailed breakdown of what to expect on the classes tab on the website.
  • Will I get injured or embarrassed?
    Everything about our beginner programs was specifically designed to make the classes as safe and encouraging for new students as possible.
  • Who will I practice with?
    As a first-time student we will pair you up with a slightly more experienced student who can answer your questions and help guide your learning throughout the class.
  • Are lockers and showers available?
    Bathrooms are available for changing, and we provide common area cubbies for usage during classes. You may use the provided cubbies to store your personal belongings.
  • What happens if I go out of state for travel or work?
    Check go to locations. If there is a Gracie Certified Training Center (CTC) there you can train at no cost. We will email the head instructor to give them a heads up you will be visiting. When you return let us know what classes you took, and we will give you credit.

    Combatives has an option for 2 x week and an unlimited option. Master Cycle has a 2 x week, 3 x week and unlimited option. Women Empowered is 2 x week, Kids classes are usually 2 x week.
  • What are your cleaning procedures?

  • Can I bring a friend?
    Yes. Have them go to the home page and select 7 - Day Free trial!
  • What’s the difference between jiu-jitsu and every other martial art?
    Jiu-jitsu is designed to empower the weak against the strong and there are no physical prerequisites to get started. Literally ANYONE can learn jiu-jitsu especially when taught the Gracie way!
  • Do I need to bow or call anyone Sensei?
