A Chat with Gracie Humaita St. Louis
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Owner and head instructor, Professor JW Wright, has fostered a family-oriented environment where new students learn the original Gracie self-defense and jiu-jitsu lessons.
What’s one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans?
New students who are willing to learn, who are friendly and have fun, and who work hard to apply new techniques will fit right in at our academy!
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Inspired by Master Royler Gracie and Master David Adiv, JW Wright had a strong desire to help people in his community by teaching Gracie self-defense and jiu-jitsu. He has been teaching in St. Charles County for 12 years and teaches seminars all over the country.
What do you love most about your job?
I get to do what I love every single day! When I see my students learning and applying jiu-jitsu in their everyday lives, it is the best feeling in the world.
