Territory Inquiry

  • Process
  • Submit Inquiry


We encourage you to submit the CTC Territory Availability Inquiry if you are interested in confirming the availability of your territory and learning more about the fees associated with establishing a CTC in your community. Once you do, here is what will happen:

  1. Once we review your inquiry and confirm that your territory is available, you will be granted access to a detailed information page with the terms and conditions of becoming a CTC as well as the monthly CTC fees.
  2. Once you’ve reviewed the details, you will have the option to officially reserve your territory for 12 months by pre-paying the Instructor Certification Program (ICP) tuition of $1600.
  3. Upon reserving your territory, you will be granted free online access to the two mandatory curriculums of study, Gracie Combatives and Gracie Bullyproof. Normally, these programs must be purchased separate from the ICP tuition.
  4. Once you're familiar with the programs and have demonstrated extreme proficiency in the Gracie Combatives program by passing the Gracie Combatives video evaluation with a score of 95 or higher (Phase 1), we will unlock the 60-day Online Instructor Course (Phase 2).
  5. After you complete the Online Instructor Course, you will be invited to California for the Live Evaluation at Headquarters (Phase 3), and upon successful completion, you will be certified to teach Gracie Jiu-Jitsu and you will be authorized to establish your CTC in the reserved territory (Phase 4).
