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!
