A strong foundation

Gracie (Brazilian) Jiu‐Jitsu (BJJ) is a highly effective self‐defense system of ground fighting. It is designed to allow a smaller, weaker person to defend his or her self in a real world situation that goes to the ground. Gracie Jiu‐Jitsu does this by the detailed study of correct body mechanics, timing and placement. This is good for you the student because the methods are not based one strength or speed so the skills will not fade as will strength and speed. This is also in line with the self‐defense mindset of Gracie Jiu‐Jitsu meaning you training should prepare you for a street encounter where you don’t get to choose what weight class you will be fighting in.

The self defense mind set is important because statistics say 90 to 95% of all violent attacks and street fights end up on the ground, where Gracie Jiu‐Jitsu’s techniques are most effective. Unlike most sport biased Jiu‐Jitsu GJJ not only studies grappling but also teaches the student how to deal with the opponent that tries to strike you in each position and how to effectively deal with it.

The physical benefits of training are incredible for the student. Most students experience a physical change in their bodies within 30 days of beginning their training. Students will lose weight and become more lean, gain useable strength, become more flexible and loosen the body. Many students experience lower levels of stress which leads to higher levels of day to day energy.

The focus on real‐world self defense is what separates Gracie Jiu‐Jitsu from other Brazilian Jiu‐Jitsu systems that are more sport based. If personal protection and physical fitness is your goal, Gracie Jiu‐Jitsu has an effective answer that will work for you.

Founded by Grandmaster Helio Gracie, who at 135 pounds altered the techniques of traditional Jiu‐Jitsu to depend more on leverage and mechanical advantage over strength and speed. AMAC’s Jiu‐Jitsu program will teach you to use take downs, hold downs, joint locks, strikes and chokes, to control and submit your opponent.

I designed our kids program with the child's future in the martial arts in mind. My goal is to truly educate them in the martial arts and instill a lifelong journey of growth and self perfection. I did not want your standard kids program that is offered on every corner.
