We use Gracie Jiu Jitsu, the most effective martial art for self-defense, to dramatically improve physical and mental health, confidence, safety, and security.
Welcome to Gracie Jiu Jitsu Ocoee – A Certified Gracie Jiu Jitsu Training Center® in Orlando, FL.

Gracie Combatives is our beginner program for adults. In this program, you will learn the 36 core techniques of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu in a fun, safe, and cooperative environment.
Each one-hour lesson addresses one standing and one ground self-defense technique. You can start the program at any time and participate in any class without previous experience and, since safety is our number one concern, there is no competitive sparring in this program.
Our Youth Gracie Jiu-Jitsu program focuses on teaching self-defense techniques to help students develop strength, improve coordination, and build confidence. Our fun and structured learning environment helps students improve their listening and attention skills while becoming more comfortable in social situations.
Our program teaches students how to react in a potentially confrontational situation, how to manage distance, escape the situation, and if necessary how to defend themselves and control an aggressor through leverage-based techniques.
So you want to train while visiting or vacation. Or maybe you are a Gracie University student and will like to experience training at a Certified Training Center and/or with a certified instructor and other fellow Gracie Jiu-Jitsu practitioners. Either way you are welcome to train with us. We just expect you to be respectful and roll safely with all students.
While group classes are a great way to learn Gracie Jiu Jitsu, some people prefer to start or complement their training with private lessons. Private classes enable the instructor to teach the lessons in the order that will optimize learning and to adapt techniques to suit an individual’s strengths and weaknesses. Each private lesson begins with a review of previously learned techniques, followed by the introduction of 2-3 new techniques. Once you fully understand the new techniques, the instructor will show you how to combine them with previously learned techniques in a series of Reflex Development Drills. This process continues until you have mastered all the techniques in the module.
Beyond blue belt, Gracie Jiu-Jitsu consists of hundreds of advanced techniques organized into a clearly defined, systematic curriculum called the Master Cycle. The Master Cycle’s unique structure simplifies the journey to black belt by organizing all of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu into seven positional chapters (Mount, Side Mount, Guard, Half Guard, Back Mount, Leg Locks, Standing), each of which is studied for several months before moving on to the next chapter.
If you’ve achieved the rank of blue belt or higher, and you would like to continue on the path to black belt in a safe, structured, and friendly learning environment, the Master Cycle is for you!
COMING SOON! Women Empowered is the official Gracie self-defense program for women. In this 15-lesson program, we will teach you how to neutralize the 20 most common attacks ranging from having your hair grabbed to being pinned to the ground by a weapon-bearing assailant.
If you have no previous martial arts experience, and you want to learn how to defend yourself in a fun, safe, and cooperative learning environment, Women Empowered is for you.
Getting Started is as Easy as 1-2-3
