Jeden Monat verpassen tausende Kinder aus Angst vor Tyrannen die Schule. In unseren Kids & Teens-Programm ist es unser Ziel, den Kindern ein starkes Selbstvertrauen zu vermitteln, damit sie sich gegen Tyrannen, wenn immer möglich ohne Gewalt, schützen können.
Wir sind zuversichtlich, dass unseres Gracie Kids-Lehrplan, die Kameradschaft und die Qualität des Unterrichts alle ihre Erwartungen übertreffen werden. Wenden Sie sich einfach an uns, und wir werden die erste Gracie Kids-Lektion für ihr Kind noch heute festlegen! [mehr]

The Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Network Europe (GJJNE) is today one of the oldest, largest, and professional Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu associations.

The Network was founded by Master Franco Vacirca and Master Demetrio Vacirca back in 1995 in Zurich, Switzerland. The Network is personally supervised by the great Grandmaster Carley Gracie (Red belt and son of Carlos Gracie), in order to maintain and pass-on the authentic art developed by Carlos and Hélio Gracie, the founders of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu and master-mind behind the Gracie Way.
