Martial Arts are not just for self-defense. Like any sport or training program, it can help improve coordination, stamina, strength, flexibility, and more. But beyond the physical benefits, martial arts can also lead to improved concentration, relaxation and reduced stress. Many students also benefit from a greater sense of self-confidence and improved discipline.

Gracie Breakdown

The average cop in America gets 4 hours of defensive tactics training every 2 years. FOUR HOURS!!! Not only is this costing law enforcement lives, it is also costing civilian lives, since untrained officers will resort to higher levels of force MUCH more rapidly than their well-trained counterparts. The craziest part is that Police Chiefs around the country KNOW that their officer are disastrously undertrained, and the reasons why they aren't making changes has puzzled me for well over a decade, but we have finally cracked the code. We have a plan that will give every officer in America at least 1 hour of jiu-jitsu training per week, and I will be announcing it very shortly.

Back story: Officer Sale reportedly responded to a disturbance where he got into an altercation with a suspect in a small town in North Carolina. He was the only officer on patrol. He lost his radio and his gun during the 11-minute fight after which he was airlifted to a hospital.

People always ask: "What it was like growing up in the Gracie Family?" Even though it's hard to put into words, one thing we can say is what a blessing it was to have a superhero as our grandfather and our teacher. What many people don't know was that his real superpower was his ability to make us (and everyone else he taught) feel like WE were the superheroes. We share this special footage from the "Gracie Garage" in 1988 so you can see his level of love and commitment to empowering others. He was 75 years old in the video, and he remained active in jiu-jitsu into his 90's. If it wasn't for him, so much of who we are and what we love would not exist today.

You don’t know me, but I’m willing to fly out to New York (on my own dime) to help you understand the profound and irreversible consequences of stripping police officers of the most basic non-violent control tactics. Although reform is necessary, if signed into law, this particular section of the bill will take more lives than it saves. NYPD

NYPD Training Video: MUCH Worse Than We Imagined

The NYPD Police Reform bill we discussed in our recent video is actually much worse than we imagined! Not only does it criminalize the safest and most effective non-violent control tactics, the officer is personally liable for a “criminal act” even if contact with the diaphragm was unintentional and caused no injury to the subject.

Somehow people don’t understand that by criminalizing non-violent control tactics they are encouraging violent alternatives.

No matter who you are or where you live, do whatever it takes to prevent this particular policy from passing in your city.

Police Chiefs, more than ever, you MUST keep excessive force allegations to an all-time low, and we can help.

NYPD REFORM: Less Control = More Violence

As part of a police reform package, New York City Council just passed that “Prohibits an officer from sitting, kneeling or standing on a suspect's chest or back in a way that restricts airflow or blood flow.” Change is necessary, and the intentions here are good, but due to the very ambiguous language in the bill, it could very well criminalize some of the safest and most effective non-violent control measures available to police officers. From the family that has spent nearly 100 years teaching non-violent control techniques, let this video serve as a warning to lawmakers, politicians and police chiefs around the country. Once this poorly worded reform is signed into law, it can’t be undone, and your attempt at reducing violent interactions between police officers and the public will actually bring about more violence than ever before.
