Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is the fastest growing Martial Arts form in the world and the origin of ground fighting in MMA. It is also used daily by police and military forces around the world, proving its effectiveness as a means of self-defense in authentic street situations.

Midland Gracie Jiu-Jitsu was opened with the goal of providing self-defense instruction for those in the Midland area and surrounding communities. We are fortunate to have had great success and regularly bring in Gracie Jiu-Jitsu blackbelts (including Gracie family members) to do seminars that are open to the community.
