Programs for Every Aspirant

At Carlson Gracie Academy, we offer a diverse array of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu programs tailored for every age and skill level. Our classes are meticulously designed to foster physical prowess, mental resilience, and a deep sense of community, embodying the authentic Gracie style of Jiu-Jitsu. Each program emphasizes real-world applications of techniques, preparing students not just for competition, but for everyday challenges and personal growth. 

Gi Jiu-Jitsu: Mastery Through Tradition

Our Gi Jiu-Jitsu classes focus on the traditional aspects of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, utilizing the Gi as a tool to teach control, discipline, and technique. The Gi’s grips allow for a nuanced approach to leverage and submissions, making it an excellent foundation for all grappling arts.

Practitioners learn detailed maneuvers that enhance their ability to execute techniques in any situation, whether within the guidelines of competitions like the IBJJF or in real-world scenarios. Training in a Gi fosters patience and strategy, which are essential for advancing to higher belts and excelling in traditional formats.

No-Gi Jiu-Jitsu: Dynamic and Fast-Paced Combat

No-Gi Jiu-Jitsu strips away the grips of the traditional Gi, pushing practitioners to adapt to a faster, more dynamic set of techniques based on balance, movement, and precision. Popular among MMA fighters, this style enhances a practitioner’s ability to perform under pressure, improving reaction times and adaptability.

No-Gi training is essential for those looking to compete in ADCC and other submission grappling tournaments, offering a cardiovascularly intense workout that improves endurance and physical conditioning.

Jr Bulldogs Class: Building Strong Foundations

At Ben Hall’s Carlson Gracie Academy, our Jr Bulldogs Class is tailored for children ages 4-9, focusing on instilling foundational skills through engaging and enjoyable activities. We understand that parents are seeking a safe, supportive environment where their children can not only learn self-defense but also gain valuable life skills.

Our program emphasizes respect, discipline, and confidence, helping young students develop social skills and a strong sense of self. The anti-bullying techniques taught in our classes equip children with the tools to handle challenging situations with confidence and integrity. By fostering an environment that balances fun with learning, we help children build a positive relationship with physical activity, setting the groundwork for a healthy, active lifestyle.

Sr Bulldogs Class: Developing Future Achievers

For children ages 10-14, our Sr Bulldogs Class transitions young athletes from basic techniques to more complex Jiu-Jitsu strategies. We recognize that parents are looking for more than just physical training; they want an environment that promotes personal growth and mental toughness.

Our program prepares students for real-world challenges by emphasizing self-discipline, problem-solving, and perseverance. Through technical drills, sparring, and competition preparation, we help students refine their skills while teaching them the importance of hard work, teamwork, and leadership.

The respect and camaraderie fostered among peers in this class encourage a supportive community, where students motivate each other and celebrate shared successes.

Women’s Jiu-Jitsu (Gi & No-Gi): Strength and Confidence

Our Women’s Jiu-Jitsu program is designed for females aged 12 and up, focusing on creating a safe, inclusive, and empowering training environment. We understand the unique needs and concerns that women may have when entering a martial arts class, and we strive to address these by offering a program that emphasizes self-defense, physical fitness, and mental resilience.

The classes aim to empower women by improving their self-confidence and physical capabilities, allowing them to feel stronger and more secure in their daily lives. Techniques are taught in a manner that respects each individual’s boundaries, promoting a sense of safety and community among participants. By fostering a supportive network, our program helps women and girls harness the benefits of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, both as a sport and a tool for personal defense.

Stretch and Recovery: Revitalize Your Mind and Body

Our Stretch and Recovery program emphasizes the importance of flexibility, injury prevention, and proper post-training care. These sessions are crucial for practitioners at all levels to maintain peak performance and ensure long-term participation in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. By focusing on effective stretching and recovery techniques, students can enhance their physical resilience, reduce the risk of injuries, and achieve mental clarity. This holistic approach helps improve overall well-being, enabling practitioners to stay energized and focused both on and off the mat.
