I am so happy with the growth of our Gracie Jiu-Jitsu programs, I had to expand the schedule! We now have Jiu-Jitsu classes on Saturday afternoons, Gracie Combatives from 1-2pm, and Master Cycle from 2-3pm. Yes, it says Master Cycle! I have already been training Master Cycle during that time on Saturdays, and now lets make it official. I look forward to seeing the new blue belts!
Earlier this week, our fellow training partner Adam Choi sent me a news article on Facebook about an attack in Quincy, MA. A man attacked a woman leaving the North Quincy T Station. From police reports, it was concerning that the attacker could have easily stole the woman’s purse, but he did not and continued to attack the woman. Luckily the woman was able to get away, but the attacker is still out there. This post received a lot of attention, and it raised concerns about safety for women.
In response to this attack that took place in Quincy, MA, the Institute of Combative Arts is offering a free women’s self-defense seminar. This special 1-hour seminar is designed for first-time self-defense students and will teach participants three critical techniques to address the following scenarios:
– How to break free from an attacker who grabs you without warning.
– How to avoid being taken to the ground by a determined attacker.
– How to escape from underneath an attacker pinning you to the ground.

If you live in or around Quincy, MA. Please let your friends and family members know about our Beginner Jiu-Jitsu program for adults. In this program, you will learn the 36 core techniques of Jiu-Jitsu in a fun, safe, and cooperative environment. Each one-hour lesson addresses one standing and one ground self-defense technique. You can start the program at any time and participate in any class without previous experience and, since safety is our number one concern, there is no competitive sparring in this program.
Although Jiu-Jitsu consists of over 600 techniques, studies of real fights conducted by members of the Gracie Family (founders of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu) have shown that 36 techniques have been used more often and with greater success than all the other techniques combined. Originally developed for the U.S. Army, our Beginner Jiu-Jitsu Program is entirely dedicated to the mastery of these 36 essential techniques. You need absolutely no experience to start this program. Our instructor conduct all classes in a cooperative training environment and are committed to ensuring that every new student has an informative, enjoyable experience regardless of age, gender, or athletic ability.
In this cool video produced by MMA Video Magazine, you’ll follow Ryron up to San Jose, CA where he went to teach a seminar and compete in the Gracie Worlds Jiu-Jitsu tournament. This year’s tournament is the first world tournament to abandon the points system, so the only way to win is by submission. Since there were no points in the tournament, Ryron engaged in his matches with the objective of keeping it as playful as possible, and that he did. Check out the video below.
P.S. – Someone forgot to tell Ryron that you’re not supposed to play catch and release in jiu-jitsu tournaments.
On February 1, 2012 one man’s dream to share Gracie Jiu-Jitsu to the world happened in Quincy, Massachusetts. They all came; men and women, young to old all showed up at an open house held at the Institute of Okinawan Karate-Do. The open house was an hour and half long consisting of an introduction to Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, history, philosophy and training.
Now more than a month into training after the grand opening. Only a dedicated group of individuals stay and train Gracie Jiu-Jitsu to its fullest. People here are just amazed of the self-defense effectiveness and the very enjoyable training Gracie Jiu-Jitsu has to offers.
Our group is excited to continue training and learning Gracie Jiu-Jitsu for a long time. Our goal is to eventually become a certified training center. So look out, the Gracies will be visiting the city of presidents soon!
