Instructors and New Schools

Candidate instructors from Gracie Durham will complete the next step in their process toward becoming a Certified Instructor through Gracie University and under Rener and Ryron Gracie. Existing certified instructors refresh their teaching, connect with colleagues and assist with the evaluation process.
Our friend Joe in Southern Pines will be completing his certification in January and is looking to open a Certified Training Center in that area in the near future.
