Acton Academy Roseville Intensive



Session 1: Sept 10th- Oct. 8th (5 Fridays), 12-3pm

This is a 5 week Gracie Jiu-Jitsu intensive. Students will learn the basics of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu/Judo/wrestling for self-defense and sport applications. This is the perfect way to get started!

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.

Ryan Rich has over 25 years of experience in martial arts, and is a Charles Gracie first-degree black belt and professor of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu with more than 15 years of grappling training. He is the only coach in the area with long-term university teaching experience, having run the Sacramento State Jiu-Jitsu program for over five years. He has also taught collegiate seminars out of state.

In September 2020, he was hired as an expert consultant to the Sacramento and Los Angeles County police departments, advising them about alternative holds to “carotid restraint” (now prohibited following the death of George Floyd), and filming a series of training videos for California police officers. We also participate in the national "Adopt-A-Cop" program, training local police officers in de-escalation and self-defense.
