Although Gracie Jiu-Jitsu consists of more than 600 techniques, studies of the challenge matches, conducted by members of our family over the last 80 years, show that 36 techniques have been used more often and with greater success than all the others combined. Originally developed for the U.S. Army Rangers, Gracie Combatives is the only course that is entirely dedicated to the mastery of these 36 essential techniques. In this course, we use a new training process called Dynamic Reflex Development™ to take you, regardless of age or athletic ability, from no knowledge to "street ready" in the least amount of time possible. In each of the 36 lessons, we will teach you one technique using a series of simplified drills or Technical Slices™. After you perfect each variation of the technique, we will teach you how combine them in a Reflex Development Drill™. Once your reflexes are strong in the execution of all variations of the technique, we will show you how to combine the new move with 5-7 previously learned techniques in a carefully scripted Fight Simulation Drill™. To optimize learning, and to best prepare you for the Gracie Combatives belt test, we strongly encourage you to adhere to the curriculum and only proceed to the next lesson once you are absolutely comfortable with all aspects of the previous one. By mastering all the techniques in this course, individually and in every possible combination, you will qualify to be tested for a Gracie Combatives belt promotion in person at a Certified Training Center, or online via our Video Evaluation Process.
