Gracie Bullyproof $99/month Bully Proof ages 5-12
Gracie Bullyproof is a confidence and character development program for children (ages 5-12). This program is broken up into three groups based on age and skill level (Little Champs, Jr. Grapplers and Black Belt Club) and no experience is necessary to get started. Your child will learn verbal assertiveness skills as well as non-violent self-defense techniques to stay safe if physically assaulted. We don’t teach the children how to punch or kick; instead, we use leverage-based control holds to neutralize threats without violence. Bottom line: we will prepare your child to neutralize bullies without becoming one!

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. Upon successful completion of the Gracie Combatives program, you will qualify for advancement into the Master Cycle advanced jiu-jitsu program!
The Master Cycle $150/month Master Cycle age 14+
The Master Cycle is a clearly defined, systematic advanced Gracie Jiu-Jitsu program designed to take you from blue 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), you will be able to fully commit to the study of the intricacies and nuances of each position for several weeks, before moving on to the next chapter. If you've achieved the rank of Gracie Combatives belt or higher in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and you would like to continue on the path to BJJ black belt in a safe, structured, and friendly learning environment, the Master Cycle is for you!
Women Empowered $65/month age 12+
Women's Empowerment is the official Gracie self-defense program for women in Aurora. In this 10-lesson program, we will teach you how to neutralize the 15 most common attacks ranging from having your hair grabbed to being pinned to the ground by a weapon-bearing assailant. Each one-hour Women's Self-Defense lesson addresses two techniques. You can start the program at any time and participate in any class without previous experience. Unlike most self-defense systems that rely heavily on strength, speed, and coordination, the techniques in the Women' Self-Defense program employ leverage, technique, and timing, so anyone, regardless of age or athletic ability, can make them work against larger opponents. Once you complete the Women's Self-Defense program, you may test for promotion to Pink Belt!
While Gracie University is internationally renowned for the quality of its group classes, it’s been proven that private training provides students with greater comprehension in less time. In a one-on-one environment, the instructor can teach the lessons in the order that best suits the student, and can modify or adapt the techniques to accommodate the student's strengths and weaknesses. Each private lesson begins with a review of all 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 in a series of Reflex Development Drills. This process continues until you have mastered all the techniques in the module.
