Who are you?

Ever asked yourself these questions?

If you answered yes, congratulations, you are NORMAL!

Wouldn't it be cool if there was an accessible, welcoming place you could go and start finding some answers?

It just so happens when you exit the doors of GRACIE DURHAM and turn right, the first thing you will see is a sign that looks like this :

What do they do? How can they help? Best way to find out is by dropping in and grabbing a hot cup of coffee that they will have ready for you.

My friend, Leah Rade launched this center in the late summer of 2016 and has experienced unbelievable growth already! Evidence that there are people out there struggling with life questions maybe

Financial Stress

Emotional Pain from Grief

Relationships that are in Turmoil

and ?????

What a cool concept that you can walk in from wherever you happen to be in LIFE and get some COACHING!

I can personally vouch for my friend, Leah Rade and her team as she spent many hours with my wife and I helping us to understand our differences and finding our common ground! Happy to report that all my time with her was time well spent.


What does this have to do with Gracie Jiu Jitsu?

Are there life coaching lessons we can learn from Gracie Jiu Jitsu that would complement what Ignite and Leah Rade are doing?

It's a well known fact that being able to protect yourself from a bad intentioned person on the street is a useful thing.

I've heard over and over again how learning how to SURVIVE and WIN contributes to your overall enjoyment of life.

What about not carrying those extra pounds because of exercise, the stronger back and abs, lean muscles that accompany a body free from pain caused by sedentary lifestyles?

Does Comfort in the Chaos of the fight lead to true Confidence which spills over to other areas of your life?

For some, Gracie Jiu Jitsu is the Positive Outlet that steers away from things that might otherwise Destroy Your Dignity and Prevent Your Destiny.

For others, the camaraderie created by the unique bond of the Gracie Jiu Jitsu family is a desired benefit.

And let's just face it, how cool do we feel when someone asks us "What do you do for fun?" and you answer "I train Gracie Jiu Jitsu." From that point forward, they look at you with that extra bit of wow! This actually happened to me not that long ago when I was touring the Police Academy at Wake Tech.

No matter your reason, or even if you don't know why you walk through our doors, we welcome you. Never hesitate to visit.
