Gracie University LIVE

  • Live at-home classes with Ryron and Rener Gracie!
  • No experience necessary, different programs for every skill level!

The only thing better than recorded classes are LIVE classes. You can see the instructor, and the instructor can see you. The techniques are real, the feedback is real, the connection is real, and the accountability is real!

We launched our ZOOM UNLIMITED program exclusively for Gracie University HQ students who were stuck and home during the COVID-19 pandemic. The program was so successful that we've decided to open it up to non-Torrance students, and now we have students logging on to learn LIVE, from home, all over the world!

We’ve never done this before, and we don’t know how long it will last. For students who’ve never been to Jiu-jitsu Heaven, this may very well be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to join us for live two-way video classes on the Gracie green mats.

When you join our ZOOM UNLIMITED program, you are an actual student at Gracie University Headquarters with access to over 20 live classes every week. We print an actual attendance card with your name on it and issue credit for every class you complete. If you don't have a training partner, no problem! All the adult classes are formatted to be completed solo (without a partner), and all the kids classes are formatted to be completed between parent and child.

What’s Stopping You?
Whether you’re new to jiu-jitsu, or you are a seasoned practitioner, if you’re on the fence regarding our live Zoom classes, chances are it’s because you are being blocked by one of these four questions/concerns:

  1. How can I learn with no training partner?
    We’ve modified all of the techniques in all of our programs to be practicable without a partner. Through Zoom classes we’ll help you master 80% of each technique, so that when you get back to partnered practice, all you have to do is make 20% adjustments to make it perfect. It’s been remarkably effective!
  2. What if I don’t have an official uniform or grappling mats?
    No problem. Over 80% of our Zoom students are training on carpet or another soft surface, and they are making incredible progress! Uniforms are not required either. Just wear comfortable workout attire and you’re good to go!
  3. I have no previous experience. Which program/classes should I do?
    What sets Gracie University apart is that we’ve created unique programs for each demographic. No matter what your age, gender, or experience level, we have a perfect jiu-jitsu program for you!

  5. I’m scared of getting injured or embarrassed. Am I allowed to watch instead of participate?
    What’s amazing about Zoom classes is that injuries and embarrassment so commonly associated with BJJ group classes are non-existent because you’re working by yourself in the safety of your own home. If you’d rather watch, that’s totally fine, but once you see how easy, safe, and effective the classes are, you will have the urge to participate, so don’t resist – get down and join the fun!
  6. I’m in a different time zone, how can I enjoy the lessons?
    We recognize that not every student can join the live sessions when they happen due to being in different time zones. As a result, we digitally record every Zoom session in HD and make the recordings available to all of our ZOOM UNLIMITED students so they can enjoy the classes from home at a time that is convenient for them.

Now that we got those out of the way, the only thing stopping you is YOU!

We don’t know how long regular jiu-jitsu practice will be affected by COVID-19, so this is a very unique training opportunity to attend live classes and learn jiu-jitsu from home, without a partner. If you’re even the slightest bit curious about our live Zoom classes, don’t miss this opportunity to try the classes for a full week, for free!
