About us

Gracie Schwarzwald is a Self-Defense Academy focused on the providing Most Technical Instruction possible within a positive, healthy, and friendly environment. 

Grandmaster Helio Gracie said, “Jiu-Jitsu is for everyone.”

At Gracie Schwarzwald, we believe completely in this vision.

Our goal is to teach everyone: Professionals, Women, Soldiers, Kids, the Disabled, and Athletes - anyone who can benefit from the Jiu-Jitsu lifestyle.

The reason Gracie Jiu-Jitsu changed the Martial Arts world was because it allowed anyone to realistically protect themselves regardless of size or strength.

For this reason, we make sure that everyone is made to feel welcome and that we provide a safe, clean, and friendly training experience.

And, because we are committed to teaching Gracie Jiu-Jitsu the way it was designed, we teach the complete Art and not just the Sportive Aspects.

This includes Striking, Takedowns, Groundwork, Standing Self Defense Techniques, and Philosophy. This means that Gracie Schwarzwald students are prepared to deal with any method of violent attack.
