The Rules of Engagement

Posted on our Gym wall above our training mats you will find the Rules of Engagements. We teach all classes precisely when they can, and cannot, use the techniques they are learning.

Rule 1: Avoid the fight at all costs.
Rule 2: If physically attacked, defend yourself.
Rule 3: If verbally attacked, follow the Three T-steps (talk, tell, tackle).
Rule 4: Never punch or kick the bully, establish control and negotiate.
Rule 5: When applying submissions use minimal force and negotiate.


Junior Combatives Program Details

 At this stage in your child’s Jiu Jitsu journey they will be ready to study the highly effective self-defense techniques included in our Adult Combatives Program. The Junior Combatives Program is founded on the same techniques to ensure a smooth transition in the Adult Programs.

The Junior Combatives course is broken down into 33 classes and each technique is simplified and taught with safety tips to ensure your child learns the technique in a safe and friendly environment.

After techniques are properly executed and understand they will be prepared to combine many techniques in combination with each other.  They will be confident and ready to move into the Gracie Combatives adult curriculum.
