Our Core program is the safest and most effective way of learning Gracie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
A common misconception about practicing Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is that you have to be a fighter, competitor, or athlete. This could not be further from the truth. While some of our students are active in Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) or Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) and Submission Grappling competition, many of our students practice for nothing more than the enjoyment of learning Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. Our students are comprised of a diverse group of men and women of all ages. Some are medical and business professionals, while others are college students or stay-at-home parents.
What makes Gracie 717 different is the way we teach. Our instructors are trained in serving students in an organized, patient, technical, and safe manner so as to share the best and most informative Jiu-Jitsu instruction available in the area.
