The GJJNE, headquartered in Zurich and operational in many European countries, is proud to be able to offer the highest level of education at any affiliated partner school. The professional supervision of Professor Franco Vacirca and his Gracie Concepts Education Team will ensure that every aspect of this modern and effective martial art is taught, as Professor Franco learned from his teacher Grandmaster Pedro Hemetério, the most capable student of great Grandmaster Carlos Gracie and Hélio Gracie.
GJJNE become a teacher
The “Gracie Fundamentals” class program and Master Rickson Gracie's Self-Defense Unit program form the basis of the GJJNE foundation. Our teachers abide by these basics, which gives our GJJ students the Blue belt program correctly. In addition, it is up to the teacher which techniques he / she will teach for his / her school / group, even if we (at Gracie Zuerich) continue to follow the recommendations and examination programs of the JJGF.
The VB Path of GJJ Excellence
Our members, regardless of their level of experience, can take part in various seminars and training courses. As a connected leader / teacher you also have the following options:
- The participation in the teacher’s seminars and others intensive workshops at the Gracie Concepts HQ; and…
- People who are several kilometers away and can’t visit us regularly, can send every 3-4 months a 30-minute video, where we can recognize the teacher and his students in a class format, so we can try to provide you with some feedback about your training and teaching. However, the graduation of your students and you must take place personally.
