Street Self Defense

In these seminars we'll go over escapes from several ways of attack and grips. Defense against strikes, head locks and bear hug escapes, defense against weapons such as knives, clubs or even hand guns. You will learn about developing a stronger base of support to weaken the attack. We'll talk about the importance of being aware of your surroundings at all times, maximizing any defense and counter attack strategies against the attacker. Attire: Gi pants, board or MMA shorts and t-shirts/rash guards. (no tank tops allowed)

Rape Prevention for Women

These seminars are 100% hands on. The techniques are based on strategic grips, leverage and proper timing so that they can be applied by virtually any women, regardless of age or athletic ability.

Participants will learn about all 3 stages of a sexual assault: Being identified, being approached and subdued, and being exhausted while on the ground. We'll talk about heightening awareness, scanning your surroundings, keeping an alert posture which will limit the predator's chances of carrying on the assault.

Strategies and escapes to avoid getting physically controlled on your feet will follow. Simple strategic escapes will keep you from getting where no woman wants to be, away from public view and with their back on the ground.

If avoid getting on your back wasn't possible, the next step must be to convince yourself to remain calm and avoid panic response. This is usually when the suspect will wait for the victim to waste as much energy as possible trying to get out. This comotion will cause the victim to be mentally and physically exhausted, facilitating the assault. In this stage you'll also learn specific grips and escapes to separate yourself from the attacker and either stand back up and run, or even go on with a submission attack such as chokes or joint locks.

Attire: Gi pants, sweat or stretchy pants and t-shirts/rash guards, sport bras or tank tops.

Non- Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Schools

If you own a Martial Arts school and would like to learn the fundamentals of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu to implement to your teaching curriculum, this is great opportunity to do so. Professor Crosley Gracie and his staff can build a specific seminar for you, helping you incorporate basic and fundamental grappling techniques to your traditional striking style.

Possessing such basic ground skills will give you the confidence to stay calm and capitalize on the right moment to stand up, where you can better execute your fighting style.

Attire: Gi, board or MMA shorts and t-shirts or rash guards. (no tank tops allowed).

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Seminars

If you already own a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu gym but would like to train and learn techniques directly from a member of the Gracie Family, Professor Crosley Gracie will be honored to come visit your school! Learn modern and detailed techniques that is sure to bring your ground skills to the next level.

We can tailor the class to absolutely any topic that you or your students prefer. Reversals, Half Guard, Submissions, Escapes, Combos, you choose it.

Attire: Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu gi.

Mixed Martial Arts Seminars

These seminars will be taught with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu as its foundation. That means the goal of the class is to learn blocking and/or ducking strikes, closing the distance and clinching someone who's trying to hit you and take the fight to the ground. There, you can neutralize and dominate even a bigger and stronger opponent. Once on the ground, we'll talk about positioning control, achieving dominant positions and setting up submissions.

Attire: Gi pants, t-shirt/rash guard and 4 oz. gloves.
