At Gracie University every student is part of the family, but not everyone is gets the VIP hookup. Not only does VIP membership give you unlimited access to all our online programs (except for Law Enforcement programs and Pedro Sauer Seminars), but it also gives you unprecedented training privileges at all Certified Training Centers (including Headquarters), free Gracie Seminar attendance, and a free Gracie Gift delivered to your doorstep every month!
Free CTC Training Privileges
While Gracie University provides you with the same course material and advancement opportunities that you’d find here at the Headquarters or at any Certified Training Center, it can’t perfectly replicate a live training experience. So, we encourage you to join us on the mat whenever possible. As a VIP student, you may train at any Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Certified Training Center in the world, including Gracie University Headquarters in California, for up to two weeks per year without paying a penny (Just to give you an idea of the value, the normal cost to train at Headquarters for one week is approximately $200!). Before you travel, search our database of Certified Training Centers for a school at your destination location. Let the CTC know you’ll be visiting so they can confirm your VIP status with the team at Headquarters, and once you’re approved, you’ll be invited to train for up to two weeks, for free!
Free Gracie Seminar Access
Ryron, Rener, and other black belt instructors from Gracie University regularly teach seminars all over the world. We highly recommend you attend these seminars at every opportunity to experience first-hand the Gracie techniques, philosophies, and training methods. Often, the instructors include material that isn’t yet part of the Gracie University curriculum. As a VIP member, you may attend up to two Gracie University hosted seminars per year at no charge. Free seminar access includes the highly popular 2-hour Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Mastery Seminars, but does not include specialty camps, Pedro Sauer seminars or seminars taught by other members of the Gracie Family (who aren’t affiliated with GU). When a seminar listing pops up that you'd like to attend, simply send an email to Racquel, your VIP Services Coordinator, and she'll save your spot. In the event that a seminar sells out before you're able to secure a spot, don't worry, we always find a way to make space for our VIP family members!
Note: Your VIP Family Membership will need to be active for at least two months before you are allowed to redeem the free CTC training and free seminar attendance privileges.
Surprise Gracie Gift Every Month
In the Gracie Family, we try to keep it real on the highest level, and as a VIP student, we expect you to do the same! When you sign up for VIP membership, you will provide us with your mailing address, your belt rank, and your clothing sizes. Every month, we will send you a gift ranging from a t-shirt or hoodie to a new rashguard. The best part is that you will receive your surprise gifts before they are made available for sale to the general public, so you’ll always be one choke ahead of the pack! As soon as you sign up for the VIP plan, you'll receive an e-mail request for you to send your clothing sizes and mailing address to Racquel, our VIP Services Coordinator, so we can start sending your surprise gifts right away!
VIP Customer Service
As a VIP member, you will have special privileges not available to any other students. In order to ensure the highest level of customer service, we have a dedicated VIP Services Coordinator, Racquel Kussman (also the first female Gracie University Black Belt), to take care of anything you need. Upon enrollment, you will be given access to a special e-mail address set up exclusively for you and other VIPs. If you ever want to attend a free seminar or drop-in at a Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Certified Training Center for a few classes, simply send a quick email over to Racquel, and she will set everything up for you in advance, so that all you need to worry about is bringing a gi and keeping it real!
VIP Membership: $99/month or $990/year
