It is with great pleasure and inspiration that we welcome you to Gracie Humaitá Austin.
Our academy is a destination for some of the greatest Jiu-Jitsu teachers and competitors in the world. Our mats serve as equal parts classroom and laboratory, where we provide unparalleled instruction into the fundamental principles of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, while also continually testing our techniques through hard work and dedication.
We are from the old school. We believe there are no shortcuts to success. We know that for those who make sacrifices in their lives and view those sacrifices as an investment in themselves, the rewards are immense and everlasting. And it is for this reason that we are continually dedicated to building the foundations of an exceptional Jiu-Jitsu academy. We know it takes commitment, patience, and effort – these things we have in abundance. What we always need, are people who are aligned with our vision.
Jiu-Jitsu is a profoundly effective martial art – both as a self-defense art, as well as an art that develops the bonds of human character and connection. It can be invincible in its application, except when it is taught in an environment that fosters selfish behavior and encourages the idea of success through the failure of others. At Gracie Humaitá Austin, we are one team – one family. We fight to keep alive a tradition that was passed to us directly from the founder of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, Hélio Gracie and his son, Royler Gracie. And it is with this legacy in mind that we work only to elevate our teammates. From black belt to white belt, we all work to lift our teammates on our shoulders, because their success is our triumph.
If you would like to become a member of our family, please provide us with your contact information and a short note about your background in Jiu-Jitsu (belt rank, teacher, goals in Jiu-Jitsu, etc.) on the form below. We are always working hard to build the foundation for our team, and we look forward to having you join us.
Welcome to our tradition.
One Team. One Family. One Legacy.
