Your inquiry has been sent. Please allow up to 30 days for us to determine your eligibility for the Territory Reservation Program (TRP). In the meantime, continue sharpening your Gracie Combatives techniques.

The CTC Territory Reservation Inquiry can only be submitted if you currently own and/or operate a martial arts school, and you have confirmed that there is no CTC within five (5) miles of your existing location.

Here is how the process works:

  1. Once we review your inquiry and confirm the territory availability, you will be granted access to a detailed information page with the terms and conditions of becoming a CTC as well as the fees associated with the process.

  2. If the terms are satisfactory to you, you will have the opportunity to apply for the Instructor Certification Program (ICP) and pre-pay the tuition of $1600, and by doing so, you will officially reserve your territory for 12 months. The ICP consists of four phases (covered below).
  3. As a special bonus for pre-paying the ICP tuition, 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 Test with a score of 95 or higher (Phase 1), we will unlock the 60-day online ICP course. (Click here to learn more about the Four Phases of the ICP)
  5. After you complete the online ICP course (Phase 2), you will be invited to California for the Live Evaluation at Headquarters (Phase 3), and upon successful completion, your school will begin operating as a Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Certified Training Center! (Phase 4)
