Our Program

Gracie (Brazilian) Jiu-Jitsu is a self-defense based martial art that forces the practitioner to work out their entire body and mind. While adults may come first to mind when thinking of this sport, Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is also a great practice for children. While the list of reasons you and your child should sign up at Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Zuerich (or Basel) are endless, here are a few of the program key benefits:

Children and adults will instantly make friends on their first day. They will have strong role models by engaging with our instructors and with our senior students. GJJ brings a new level of physical fitness, personal safety, and confidence to all our members.

Unfortunately, bullying is very common. However, through GJJ students can build the confidence to stand up for themselves and gain their self-esteem back. Students will learn techniques that will navigate them through any bullying situation. Our goal is to end bullying for men, women, and children.

Gracie Kids

Students learn how to apply what they learn in GJJ in their everyday life. We teach students how to apply principles of martial art training in all different areas. Students are expected to be disciplined in and outside of class.

By encouraging our youth to get good grades and practice good manners, we are developing our students to get ready for adulthood. We teach children the importance of being on time, well dressed, groomed and attentive. Respect, honor, courage and discipline is what we instill in our program. This structure is the pinnacle of what we desire have on and off our mats.

GJJ is an individual sport when competing, but the amount of teamwork needed to get students ready is crucial to a successful performance. Our students who choose to compete have the support of our entire GJJ network.

We truly believe every parent and every child should learn GJJ. Through team work and the guidance of our instructors, the fundamentals of GJJ can teach our children how to do anything they put their mind to and work hard at.
