The Clark Gracie Jiu Jitsu - Gracie Allegiance Academy offers the best training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in San Diego CA USA for beginners, to pro Mixed Martial Artists, and Law Enforcement. At the Academy, we focus on the team; Meaning you, the student. Not everyone has the same reasons for training in the Martial Arts. Some enjoy the exercise, others want to learn self-defense, and some may wish to pursue a career in MMA or competition. The philosophy of this Team is to teach functional Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu that you will keep with you for the rest of your life. You will not get watered down technique, or be taught how to win a tournament without knowing how to defend yourself on the street. We will teach you to be comfortable anywhere, with or without strikes; on the feet, on the ground, off your back, how to control the situation, and how to have fun while learning it! Many of our students are Law Enforcement, Mixed Martial Artists and members of the Armed Forces. People have diverse needs; that is why we have assembled equally diverse resources for the students at our school.
We are led by Black Belt Professor, Clark Gracie, who is the grandson of Carlos Gracie, the founder of this Martial Art. Clark is the only Gracie family member living in San Diego who is teaching and still competing regularly.
