Every September and November at Anderson’s Martial Arts Academy you can come and learn Gracie Self-Defense from Steve Maxwell, physical educator, 5th degree black belt under Relson Gracie and trained personally by the Gracie family. Steve is considered by the Gracies as one of the finest instructors in their art.

Between that time you can train with our AMAA instructors, we’ve been teaching Brazilian JiuJitsu in NYC for two decades.

In Gracie Jiu Jitsu seminars, taken together, you will learn:

  • The origins and history of Gracie jiu jitsu and how it developed
  • Why Gracie jiu jitsu may be the most applicable self-defense system in a real fight
  • The truth about self-defense in its real-world application
  • Why any self-defense system requiring strength speed or power is a step in the wrong direction
  • The Helio Gracie foundational stand-up self-defense system
  • Every fight starts standing — how to escape the most common attacks from the feet
  • Why learning how to breath is the most important factor in maintaining calm during a confrontation
  • Why it’s important to assume ANY attacker is bigger/stronger/faster/more dangerous than yourself
  • Solo and partner drills for proper breathing technique
  • How to breathe to prevent panic
  • How body tension is your biggest enemy and the primary cause of physical injury
  • The most common street attacks and how to defend against them

Stand-Up Self-Defense

The ground fighting is well-known and documented but few are aware of the devastating effectiveness of the Gracie stand-up self-defense fighting system… yet every fight starts from the feet.

In this course, you will learn:

  • How real attacks occur
  • How to avoid the sucker punch
  • How to identify a potentially violent person by reading the signs they give off
  • What step(s) you can take to avoid conflict
  • How to pre-empt and stop any punch with the wedge
  • Why distance and timing are your best friends in street encounters
  • How to escape
  • The two most common street attacks and how to defend against them
  • Release from the most common grabs and chokes

Ground Defense

It’s a well-known fact that when faced with a bigger, stronger opponent, the odds are you’ll go to the ground. Feeling comfortable on the ground, and knowing how to fight there, can save your life.

In this course, you will learn:

  • Why going to the ground is almost unavoidable when facing a bigger, stronger opponent(s)
  • Why the ground is the smaller, weaker man’s best friend
  • Why being on the bottom doesn’t mean you’re losing the fight — and sometimes it’s the most advantageous position
  • How to defend yourself on the ground
  • How to fall without injury — even when thrown or shoved to the concrete or parking lot
  • The most common hold on the ground — and how to escape
  • How to defend yourself — and escape — from the headlock, eye-gouge, and bite
  • Why choking someone is preferable to kicking or punching and is the most humane way to subdue a violent attacker
  • The five key movement patterns to assure success in groundfighting
