All of our instructors are highly trained in both sport Jiu Jitsu and self defense techniques, and want to spread their knowledge to you. Since being founded by Carlos Gracie Sr. in the 1920’s, Jiu Jitsu has proven many times over to be the most effective martial art in the world.
Mater Rilion Gracie
Rilion Gracie, son of Carlos Gracie Sr., grew up around BJJ, and has shaped his life and philosophy based on the lessons he has learned on the mat. He passes this knowledge on to his instructors and students, allowing them to spread the benefits of Jiu Jitsu to as many people as possible.
These benefits range from self-confidence, patience, mental strength, and physical fitness, and are the foundations of our teaching practices at RG BJJ Missouri City.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu was designed to allow the underdog in a fight to utilize leverage and technique, rather than strength, to overcome an opponent while keeping themselves safe. It truly is a sport for everybody. Many people say though, that while learning self defense is clearly important, the other benefits of Jiu Jitsu are much more important. Lessons learned on the mat of patience, focus, and discipline, carry over in to your everyday life. You’ll start to notice small things don’t bother you as much as they did and projects at work are easier to finish than before. The support of our BJJ community will help carry you through the tough times so you can return the favor in the future.
Our adult program has two class levels. The beginner classes are designed for those who have never trained Jiu Jitsu before, while the advanced classes will take your game to the next level. In the beginner classes you’ll learn basic self defense, and learn the fundamentals of BJJ. Once you have the basics down, it’s time to add more techniques and focus on the details in our advanced classes.
Our kids programs focuses on helping your child start down a successful life path. By teaching them values of respect, discipline, and confidence they will always have a compass pointing them in the right direction. Knowing they can defend themselves will also let them stand up for both themselves and others at school or on the play ground.
