Expert Instruction

Can you be your best if you aren’t learning from the best? At Gulf Coast Jiu-Jitsu, that’s just what you’ll get – the best. No student teachers. No assistant coaches. No substitutes. You learn from the owner and founder, Corey J. Richardson. A black belt under Eric Silver in the Rickson Gracie curriculum, Corey personally instructs all Gracie Jiu-Jitsu classes. You won’t find better or more hands-on instruction anywhere on the Gulf Coast.

Expert Curriculum

Martial arts is a craft, mastered through discipline. Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is no exception. But that mastery and discipline can only be unlocked under the right conditions. Our curriculum is designed by Rickson Gracie, the son of the Gracie Jiu-Jitsu’s founder, Helio Gracie. Our curriculum uses the same exacting and demanding standards Rickson uses to train and test his own students. This is hands down the best training curriculum for Gracie Jiu-Jitsu.

Self Defense

Have you ever been in danger? Have you ever had to defend yourself or someone else against a larger opponent? Could you settle your mind and body to focus on keeping yourself or someone else safe? On your feet or on the ground, Gracie Jiu-Jitsu arms you with practical self-defense techniques that minimize injury to yourself and put the odds in your favor, even against bigger opponents. You’ll train in conditions that are similar to real world situations, not crafted scenarios that can only be defended against under “just the right” conditions. Anyone can use Gracie Jiu-Jitsu to defend themselves in any threatening scenario.

Family Atmosphere

Age, gender, race, job, or fitness level – none of these things matter. When you join our academy, you are accepted as one of our own. We train together, but we also have fun together and learn from each other. We’re more than just a martial arts school. We’re a family.
