Adult Jiu-Jitsu

Royce Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Academy of Raleigh is the only official Royce Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Network school in Raleigh.  Our focus is on real-world self-defense.

Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is the most effective martial art in the world today.  Striking, clinching, takedowns, and submissions are all integral parts of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu.  The most unique aspect of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is ground techniques.  It's commonly held that most fights end up on the ground, and the Gracie Jiu-Jitsu practitioner has an elevated knowledge of ground-based techniques.

At the heart of everything that we do is our passion for education and our commitment to our students. Our Instructors are experienced practitioners, certified by Royce Gracie to teach Gracie Jiu-Jitsu.


Always assume that your opponent is going to be bigger, stronger and faster than you; so that you learn to rely on technique, timing and leverage rather than brute strength.

Everyone has their own personal reasons for deciding to train in martial arts. Some want to get in shape, relieve stress, gain confidence, or to be more disciplined. Those who choose to train jiu-jitsu specifically do so because of its effectiveness in real-world self-defense scenarios as well as hand-to-hand combat. With consistent training in Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, anyone can learn to overcome their attacker, regardless of size or strength level.

There is no better tool to address bullying, domestic violence, or sexual assault than jiu-jitsu. It is an absolute must for law enforcement officers.
