Gracie Games™   
Our father introduced us to Gracie Jiu-Jitsu before we could walk, but, he didn’t formally “teach” us any techniques until we were five or six years old. Instead, he developed ten playful exercises based on the fundamental principles of the art. He called these exercises “Gracie Games.” At the Gracie Academy, we introduce all children to the art with these games, and in this course, we will teach you how to play them with your child. Each Gracie Game has three levels. When all 10 games have been completed, you will go back to the first game and play it again. But, each time you cycle through the games, you will gradually increase the intensity level. This process of cycling through the games at increasing levels of intensity will continue until your child masters all 10 Gracie Games and has fallen in love with the fun aspect of the art, at which point they will be ready for the Jr. Combatives course.

  Ryron and Rener Gracie  
  Ryron and Rener Gracie are the eldest grandsons of Grand Master Helio Gracie, the creator of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. Their father is Rorion Gracie, one of the world’s foremost experts in self-defense. In 1993, Rorion created the Ultimate Fighting Championship to showcase the supremacy of the family’s self-defense system in a realistic “no holds barred” confrontation against all comers. Rorion’s younger brother, Royce, won 3 of the first 4 UFC tournaments proving that the leverage-based techniques of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu provided the most reliable way to defeat a larger, more athletic opponent. Ryron and Rener were born into this family tradition of testing the art against all challengers.
