Led by four-time jiu-jitsu world champion Caio Terra, Gracie Fighter San Jose enlightens children and adults in the art of technique-driven self-defense. Black belt instructors conduct workshops partitioned by child (ages 4–8), junior (ages 8–14), and adult age groups in a range of grappling, kickboxing, and amalgamated disciplines. Brazilian jiu-jitsu classes focus on refining techniques before students engage in five-minute sparring bursts with other classmates and B-list movie bullies. A grappling-style art, Jiu Jitsu combines sweeps and submissions with defensive escapes and guard passes taught in a traditional gi uniform or no-gi style, which makes grabbing an opponent more difficult.

Students of muay thai kickboxing gain competence in fighting and fitness with plyometric routines for increasing stamina and shadowboxing bouts that maintain the third dimension’s dominance over the second. Gracie sponsors its own MMA team with fighters including MMA stars Nick Diaz, Nate Diaz, Jake Shields, and Gilbert Melendez, and MMA courses blend grappling and kickboxing skills specific to fighting in a ring. By incorporating use of the cage wall, kicks and punches take on an added dimension and complement ground-position training.

The Institute of Martial Arts

The Institute of Martial Arts enlightens children and adults in the skills and discipline of technique-driven self-defense within a well-equipped 7,000-square-foot studio—a hefty upgrade from the garage that served as its birthplace. Led by four-time jujitsu world champion Caio Terra—who pilots informative seminars on his prize-winning skills across the globe—the staff of black-belt instructors conducts workshops for all age groups in a range of grappling, kickboxing, and amalgamated disciplines. They teach such techniques as Brazilian jujitsu, muay thai kickboxing, and krav maga to boost stamina, overall fitness, and hand-to-hand, or, heaven forbid, hand-to-extraterrestrial-tentacle, combat abilities.

The Institute of Martial Arts also sponsors its own MMA team with fighters including MMA stars Nick Diaz, Nate Diaz, Jake Shields, and Gilbert Melendez.
