Welcome to granite bay jiu-jitsu academy online!

Greetings and thank you for supporting granite bay jiu-jitsu academy online - did you know that your online patronage is actually tax deductible? Yep, we are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization (83-3635273) and every dollar from our Patreon goes toward expanding our presence in both our local community in Granite Bay, California, supporting at-risk youth with martial arts scholarships, as well as our online platform offering unlimited video access to our curriculum that's 100% free to all.

granite bay jiu-jitsu academy is a certified Charles Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Association Academy under 7th degree black belt, Master Charles Gracie. granite bay jiu-jitsu academy is also certified by Master Carlos Gracie Jr’s IBJJF (International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation), Master Rickson Gracie’s JJGF (Jiu-Jitsu Global Federation), and Master Robson Gracie’s FJJRio (Jiu-Jitsu Federation of Rio de Janeiro). It offers authentic Gracie Jiu-Jitsu from the source to Granite Bay, Folsom, Loomis, Rocklin, Roseville, Sacramento, and surrounding areas.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a proven, world-renowned martial art for both sport and self-defense. Unlike other martial arts, the BJJ self-defense methodology focuses on how to defeat a more athletic, bigger, stronger opponent utilizing leverage, timing, and natural body movements.

In each class, students train with other students using varying levels of resistance, which makes for a great dynamic workout that’s never the same twice. Children and adults learn life skills and get the exercise they need from BJJ while having fun in a clean, safe, family-friendly, and health-minded fitness environment.

Our curriculum was developed by one of the oldest and most respected organizations in BJJ – the Charles Gracie Association, with which all our coaching staff associates, and have even implemented the cutting-edge curriculums developed by John Danaher, Renzo Gracie, and Rickson Gracie. We also have a kid-teaching methodology developed in partnership with Christine S. Zelnik, M.A., CCC-SLP, a boutique, pediatric speech-language pathologist in Granite Bay and one of our academy’s coaches. We employ evidence-based training modalities with regard to all our work with children, including significant experience helping children with severe behavioral issues. Professor Ryan (owner and head instructor) also has lifelong experience working with individuals with special needs.

We are the only academy with a non-profit organization that grants scholarships to at-risk youth for absolutely nothing – their training and uniform costs are all 100% covered by our non-profit.

granite bay jiu-jitsu academy has almost 20 black belts between our Granite Bay and Sacramento locations, several other upper-belts with years of teaching experience with both youth and adults, and also offer Judo!

All of our instructors and coaches are background-checked. We have been credentialed by and are vendored with every applicable charter school in both Sacramento and Placer Counties.
