Jiu Jitsu Based on the Founder

Jiu jitsu in Colorado comes in a variety of flavors. One can divide the differing schools into an emphasis on self defense versus sport jiu jitsu, for instance. Or a focus on gi versus nogi training. Or on one lineage (line or “family tree” of instructors) versus another. At Relson Gracie Academy, we teach our students the lessons learned and codified by BJJ founder and grandmaster Helio Gracie. With a heavy emphasis on self defense and practical fighting skills, our academy adheres to the original source of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. In fact, the academy’s namesake is the son of Helio Gracie himself
