As soon as I walked into the place I felt just at home, my first time entering the gym I was instantly greeted by the instructor with open arms the atmosphere is simply a warm humbling feeling. I have only been twice since moving from my previous gym in SC and I know for a fact that this is where I will be training for now on. Truly a great place and not just the instructors but students as well, they all welcome you and treat each other with the utmost respect and humble approach, if you are experienced or just starting out you couldn’t ask for a better place to train.




Fundamental Gracie Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ)

Gracie Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is the single most effective martial art you can learn for self defense. Unlike most martial arts, Jiu Jitsu doesn’t rely on size and strength. It’s all about leverage and joint manipulation.

A smaller person could easily use BJJ techniques to defeat a much larger and stronger opponent. Since real-world fights often end up on the ground, training in a martial art that focuses exclusively on ground combat is both practical and prudent. An added bonus of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is that it will get you in shape.

Lessons Include:

  • ​Headlock and Pinned Down Escapes
  • Escaping Bear Hugs, Body Locks and Chokes
  • Solutions to counter sucker punches, kicks and takedown attempts
  • Knife, Gun and other Deadly Object Defensive Tactics​

Best of all, with Jiu Jitsu, exercise is fun, never a chore.

Women's Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Why should a female be part of Gracie Humaita?  As a martial art designed to allow the weaker to defeat the stronger, BJJ is a perfect fit for women who are interested in learning how to protect themselves ? And who wouldn’t be, right?

The Gracie Humaita Kansas City Women’s Program combines a comprehensive self-defense curriculum with emphasis on drills that simulate realistic attack and escape situations. The techniques are complemented by a strong fitness component that is second to none compared to classes offered in regular gyms. Classes specially designed for women like Rape Prevention, BJJ Conditioning and social “get togethers” are added benefits to the ordinary activities and create a strong bond between the members of the team.
