My kids liked their 1st lesson. However, they should have priced their gi rental or purchase into the Groupon deal. Extra $65 per kid was a bit unexpected.

I rate it 3 stars because I did like some of the coaches like Eddie and Alex Stuart. What I didn't like was that it was very slow paced, expensive, and how I wasn't able to do any free-rolling (freestyle grappling). Unlike other gyms I have trained at like 10th Planet in Long Beach, I was there for over a year, almost everyday was a free-roll sesh, fast paced, better techniques than what GU taught

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu: Size Doesn’t Matter

Gracie Jiu-Jitsu classes don’t just increase physical strength and stamina—they also teach practical self-defense techniques. Read on to learn more about this South American art.

If David and Goliath were to fight a rematch in Jiu-Jitsu, the odds might be even more in David’s favor. That’s because Gracie Jiu-Jitsu’s grappling techniques, such as mounts and joint locks, are designed to help fighters overtake opponents of virtually any size. A modified version of traditional Japanese Jiu-Jitsu and judo, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu demands that fighters stay close to the ground, incorporating timing and leverage to take advantage of faster, stronger opponents.

Appropriately enough, the martial art of underdogs emerged largely because of a fighter who was forced to overcome physical disadvantages. Hélio Gracie, the youngest child of the Gracie family, was forbidden from learning to fight due to his often poor health and physical frailness. Around 1917, Hélio’s oldest brother, Carlos, began studying traditional Jiu-Jitsu and judo techniques from Japanese fighter Mitsuyo Maeda. Worried for Hélio’s health, the family decided that the art should only be passed to the stronger sons. Undeterred, Hélio studied his brothers closely and began modifying the Japanese techniques to his advantage. Eventually, he crafted an enduring martial art and proved that strength and speed could be overcome with proper knowledge and technique. Blossoming out of the prodigious Gracie clan, the art, sometimes even referred to as Grace Jiu-Jitsu, has since spread from South America to as far as Slovenia and Alaska, which is notorious for its polar bears well versed in karate.
