Gracie Combatives®
Although there are over 600 techniques in Gracie Jiu-Jitsu studies of real fights have shown that 36 techniques have been used more often and with greater success than all the other techniques combined. These 36 techniques were divided into 23 different classes (left) to make up the Gracie Combatives Course. All 23 classes can be completed in any order.

Reflex Development Class (RD Class)
A “Combatives Card” will be used to track your progress through the course and once you attend each lesson two times, you qualify to participate in the Reflex Development Classes where you will learn to execute all variations of the 36 techniques in every possible combination: Saturdays 12:45 – 1:45 pm.

Blue Belt
Once you complete each Gracie Combatives® class three times, and you perfect the 36 techniques in every possible combination you can test for your Blue Belt. Please see Blue Belt Qualification Requirements for details.
