Self Defense Quiz - How ready are YOU?

Do you know ONE technique that really exemplifies what Gracie Jiu Jitsu is all about?

Do you know what you would do if you opted to use some "dirty fighting" techniques (groin shots etc..) and they failed to incapacitate your attacker?

Do you have confidence in your ability to push off someone who ended up on top of you and was bigger and stronger than you?

Do you know about how many techniques you need to know to feel confident about defending yourself in a typical "street" self-defense situation?

Do you believe in your ability to withstand or defend from punches from a bigger and stronger assailant?

Do you know one of the fastest ways to learn these techniques?

If you answered NO to most of the questions above, then you might not be mentally or physically prepared to defend yourself in a typical "street" self-defense situation.

If so, the next questions are worth your time to consider.

If you answered YES to most of the questions above, then congratulations, you've probably engaged in some kind of training or education that gives you a good self-defense foundation. We would love the opportunity to add to your knowledge, the following questions would be a good indicator if you are a fit for our programs.


Is it a concern for you that fights usually start standing, but against a bigger, stronger opponent, chances are that the fight ends on the ground with you on the bottom, because they are bigger and stronger?

Are you motivated by the fact that Grand Master Helio Gracie was only 140 lbs, yet he developed and used Gracie Jiu Jitsu to defend himself against people twice his size?

Are you concerned that in a fight against a bigger, stronger attacker, without a reliable strategy, fear ensues which leads to panic and then exhaustion? When you run out of energy - you lose by default.

Are you interested in self-defense strategies that will exhaust your opponents energy while preserving yours? Ultimately, if they run out of energy, you win the fight by default.

Do you like to learn as part a comprehensive system that is proven effective?

Do you like to try things out first before investing, to make sure it's absolutely a perfect fit for you?

Is it appealing to be able to learn in a cooperative group environment AND be able to review/learn at your own pace and schedule at any time of the day or year?

If you answered YES to most of these questions, then the Gracie Combatives program could be a great fit for you!
