Certainly in a city the size of Denver, there are a number of martial arts schools and academies from which one can choose. When it comes to Denver martial arts, there have never been such a large number of options readily available. And, there seems to be new ones popping up almost everyday. How can one choose? Do the research for yourself and ask around about the most effective form of self-defense available today. You are likely to find the best choice, by far, to be Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Shown hands down to be a modern improvement in real world self defense, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is the world renowned leader in practical and live defense.

Not Any Self Defense School, but Gracie Jiu Jitsu

Gracie Colorado not only offers the cream of the crop in local self defense classes in the form of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, but the academy teaches the pure and original form of the art: Gracie Brazilain Jiu Jitsu. Begun by the diminutive genius, Helio Gracie, the Gracie family continues the teachings and form taught by this grandmaster himself. Not watered down with competition limits, such as timing requirements, point scoring systems, or dangerous and often challenging physical feats, Gracie Jiu Jitsu relies on effective, practical movements that have real life applicability.
