What’s the difference between Gracie Jiu Jitsu & Brazilian Jiu Jitsu?

Gracie Jiu Jitsu is a type Brazilian Jiu Jitsu that focuses on ‘Self Defence first‘. As opposed to a purely sporting mindset. We find that for the majority of people, this has much more benefit and application in their day to day lives.

What do classes consist of?

To ensure that the techniques shown can be applied in motion, at Zen Combat Fitness we emphasise both situational and free sparring otherwise known as rolling before doing so students are taught the correct use of body mechanics and technique , so they can be used live effectively and without hurting themselves in the process . You will be taught Pedro Sauer’s syllabus White to Blue Belt Fundamentals.

Am I too old / unfit / small to join?

Gracie Jiu Jitsu is great for all shapes sizes and ages of people and equally beneficial for men women & Children at Zen Combat Fitness we trace our lineage back to Grand Master Helio Gracie a man who proved time and time again that with regard to defending yourself with Gracie Jiu Jitsu size doesn’t matter!
