Kids Martial Arts in Carlsbad

Why choose Gracie Humaita over other martial arts or jiu jitsu academies? We have the most extensive and responsive curriculum built by Grandmaster Helio Gracie, The Founder of Gracie Jiu Jitsu. While gyms like Gracie Barra which is a franchise, so anyone can open, Master Royler Gracie is selective with who he chooses to run or own a Gracie Humaita Dojo. At other gyms you show up get checked in and get promoted, very easy right? well what does that teach your child? It teaches them that hard work does not pay off since it doesn’t mean that they have to actually learn the techniques to move forward. At Gracie Humaita we make sure each kids works on what they need to , as to improve to their fullest potential. Come bring your child or yourself and try out one of our world renown classes in Self defense, Womens, Childrens, Competition, or our Faction Muay Thai program.

Martial Arts Alliance in Carlsbad

The Gracie Jiu Jitsu Carlsbad and San Marcos Alliance is the strongest team North San Diego has seen. We have Locations in Carlsbad, Ca and San Marcos, CA. with over 400 members between them. Also with the highest number of black belts that have moved from all over the world to train with the Humaita jiu jitsu team. We start our beginner programs learning the basics of self defense so every newbie understands how to protect themselves and won’t go to the street with a competition base and not know how to use it in a real situation. This is how other gyms in carlsbad teach(competition only). We also have the largest women team in North san diego county and our kids our spread out all over north county competing for different academies as they were built by Gracie Jiu Jitsu Carlsbad, others benefited from our hard work. Last weekend the Gracie team brought home gold and silver members with everyone that competed, except 2, huge congrats to them!

Anthony Ferrer Receives Blue Belt!

Anthony Ferrer received his Blue Belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at Gracie Carlsbad from Professor Nick Stefan, congrats buddy you will be missed and we look forward to you coming back someday.

Anthony Ferrer trained at Gracie Jiu Jitsu Carlsbad and received his blue belt after a long, hard, committed year and a half. Not only did Anthony excel at his training, but was one of the kindest, good people that has ever walked through this city! I would have to commend whoever raised his as i hope my children grow up with his attitude towards life and people. He will be missed and words cannot describe how good this human being is.

Strength in Jiu Jitsu!

Strength in Jiu Jitsu!

Often times, when starting out in jiu-jitsu, students are told to “slow it down” or “relax” through a set of techniques. The truth of the matter is that wherever you are in your jiu-jitsu journey, there is always room for more. More efficiency, more balance, more improvement. Here are some ways to reduce the amount of strength in your techniques when applicable as well as differentiating between limiting the strength you put into your practice and developing strength as an athlete.

We all have been victim to the enraged white belt who is hungry for that collar choke or arm-bar. The primal nature of grappling breeds this misconception that in order to be successful in beating your opponent, you must be strong. While there are instances in grappling where strength is a valuable attribute, more often than not, being patient and allowing your opponent to make a mistake will open up an opportunity for you to attack without strength as the “prime mover” of the submission.

Strength may not be the main focus of your practice when it comes to jiu-jitsu, but that does not mean the development of strength should not be emphasized. It simply means that taking strength out of the equation will help sharpen or enhance the other tools in your toolbox be it speed, concentrating your body weight in more advantageous areas for control, economy of motion, etc.

Just as other senses are heightened when one is diminished, according to Josh Vogel’s article “Do You Rely Too Much on Strength?” he states that “this is a form of constraints-based practice to develop the purest technique possible by taking away attributes. It is similar to removing a limb from play to simulate injury in training or closing your eyes to develop sensitivity of touch in certain situations”.

I feel that the principles used in jiu-jitsu are commonly used in life. You cannot muscle your way out of every problem. Some require finesse and poise. With that being said, if you would like to read more on this subject and many others, please refer to this link: https://breakingmuscle.com/learn/do-you-rely-too-much-on-strength.
