Join the Action at Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Newnan

(Last Updated On: June 7, 2021)

It’s time to join the action and fun at Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Newnan conveniently located in the center of Downtown Newnan. Gracie University teaches jiu-jitsu in a way that offers an efficient way of learning, which makes it excellent for those beginners starting out as well as those who have prior experience in jiu-jitsu.

Brian, one of the instructors and co-founders at Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Newnan, proudly explains, “Although there are many places to learn jiu-jitsu, Gracie University is the only one that presents the entire curriculum in a linear fashion from white to black belt. As a result, you can begin with absolutely no experience, and you’ll never feel overwhelmed or confused. I have found their teaching methods with online video lessons and techniques broken into Technical Slices to be the most efficient method for learning. This has inspired me to want to share jiu-jitsu with the community, and this led to the opening of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Newnan.” Brian was introduced to jiu-jitsu while working in Brazil and has been practicing the art for the last 12 years. He has trained at several academies and seen many styles of teaching. For the last few years, he has been in the Gracie University system alongside three other instructors and co-founders of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Newnan, Mark, Matt, and Alex.

Brian continues, “The quality of instruction can vary from one jiu-jitsu academy to the next. Through Gracie University you can be sure that you are receiving instruction with the highest regard for the founding principles of street applicability, energy efficiency, and natural body movements. As a Certified Training Center, our instructors go through an in-depth development program and must meet the high standards of the founders.” Brian elaborates, “Gracie University is the only jiu-jitsu school that introduces each new technique through a series of simplified presentations known Technical Slices and then joins these Slices in carefully designed Reflex Development Drills and Fight Simulation Drills so that you begin building reflexes in the execution of the techniques, individually in combination with other related techniques. In other words, we don’t just show you the techniques, we teach you how to build muscle memory and make them your own!”
