Association Representatives:



With the worldwide interest in the gentler side of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, the need for an association was vast. I felt that due to my status in the Martial Arts community, along with my experience, I would be able to guide students through the techniques and philosophy needed to build a strong association and to unify the spirit of traditional concepts.

The Rickson Gracie International Jiu-Jitsu Association is committed to serving and assisting in the development of the athlete, by providing quality training through Official Representatives worldwide.

The Association offers belt testing, seminars, tournaments and certificates for its members, as well as providing a structured atmosphere with guidelines and training records for students who take their training seriously and wish to track their progress.

Our classes are available to all members. Members also have the opportunity to meet and train with members in other states and countries, having access to the various Representative training facilities throughout these areas, without additional registration costs.

The Rickson Gracie International Jiu-Jitsu Association welcomes students of all ages. From beginners and advanced students, to those who are currently involved in different styles of martial arts, the Association provides the opportunity to add new techniques to their current skills.

I have received numerous physical and emotional benefits as a result of many years of training. My vision is, through the Association, to spread the benefits of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu to as many people as possible.
