Gracie Jiu Jitsu Maryland has amazing Martial Arts classes for adults. Whether you are a brand new student looking to get in shape or an advanced competitor, we have a class that will fit your specific age and skills. Students can expect to learn the most essential lessons of Gracie Jiu Jitsu in a cooperative, safe and fun environment.
Our beginner adult students learn several basic self-defense techniques in every class. Adult students can start at any time and participate in any class without having any previous experience. Adult students will enjoy learning the fundamentals of Gracie Jiu Jitsu from friendly and experienced instructors who have tested the curriculum.
At Gracie Jiu Jitsu Maryland, we even have a screening process in place for your safety. We do not allow any bullies or aggressive members that might hurt other members to come in for training just to get their frustrations out. We are all here to help each other succeed!
Safety is our number one priority. We take great efforts to make sure the facility (and the students!) are held to high hygiene standards. That way, we can focus on learning new techniques, having a fun, and going home safely at the end of the training session. You will never be expected to spar as a beginner nor will you be expected to compete in any jiu jitsu tournaments if you don't feel like it.
The best thing about our martial art is that you do not need to be athletic or in shape to learn the techniques. While most martial arts rely heavily on strength, power, speed and athletic ability, Gracie Jiu Jitsu is a martial art based on proper timing, technique and leverage. There are no impractical or unnatural movements, no board breaking, no forms (choreographed patterns of movements practiced either solo or in pairs), no training with outdated weapons, and most importantly no instructors who are unqualified to teach!
The common misconception is that Gracie Jiu Jitsu consists of only ground-fighting techniques. We understand that most fights end up on the ground, but that 100% of fights begin standing up. Because of this reality, every class begins with a lesson on how to intelligently take the fight to the ground without sustaining injury. We even talk about the importance of running away in certain situations to avoid injury. Simply put our curriculum is 100% dedicated to the Martial Art of Gracie Jiu Jitsu and not the sport of Jiu Jitsu.
