If jiu-jitsu were a tree, Gracie Combatives would be the trunk representing the fundamental techniques that you would need in a street fight against an untrained opponent. The branches represent the Master Cycle, advanced techniques that you would use to overcome an opponent who is also trained in jiu-jitsu. The entire tree, however, is made possible by the roots which represent the 32 “Micro Principles” that make all of jiu-jitsu work the way it does. On your path from purple to brown belt, you will learn eight principles per stripe course, and once you learn all 32 Principles, you will see jiu-jitsu through an entirely different “lens.” You will learn techniques more easily, apply techniques more naturally, and improvise more effectively than you ever thought possible.
You will also gain access to The 32 Principles Handbook! A breakdown of all 32 Principles conveniently condensed into a downloadable PDF handbook for quick reference on the mat and off. You can access the Handbook from any computer or mobile device.
