Frequently Asked Questions

Our Mission is to enhance the lives of each of our students, by helping them to achieve their individual goals & optimize their physical, mental, & emotional well-being, by providing the highest quality martial arts training, focusing on the development of realistic self-defense skills, in a safe, clean, welcoming, professional, family-friendly environment.

We offer training for students of all skill and experience levels! Even if you’ve never stepped foot in a martial arts class before, our instructors will guide you step by step through our structured program format, to help you get started with your training. We offer classes specifically geared towards beginners, and we have new students joining our program all the time. Everyone trains at their own pace and ability level, so you never have to worry about trying to keep up with anyone else! 

Everyone trains at their own pace and to their own capacity. While it is always recommended to consult your physician before beginning any physical training regimen, training in our programs does not require any extraordinary amount of athleticism, flexibility, or endurance. The reality is that most students who want to “wait to get in shape” to start training, usually do neither.  The fact is, whatever your level of fitness when you start, you will increase your capacity and get in better shape through training. Many of our students see significant weight loss and improvements in their overall fitness levels after just a few weeks of consistent training.    

Most people find that the classes at Royce Gracie Academy of Lake Norman are so fun and mentally engaging, they don’t even realize how hard they are working! 

Serious injuries are very, very rare occurance! Of course, as with any physical activity, it is impossible to totally eliminate the potential for injury.  While we practice in very practical, hands on manner, safety is always one of our top priorities. We make every effort to reduce the potential risks of injuries for our students and provide careful supervision, particularly for our younger students. 

We typically find that more injuries to our students happen in everyday life outside of the academy than on our mats at Royce Gracie Academy of Lake Norman!

We find that most of our youth students focus better when they’re not focused on watching their parents.  To best maximize our space and to reduce distractions to our students & staff, we don’t typically allow parents inside the training area during youth classes, except during special occasions, such as belt promotions.  However, we want you to be able to see your child’s progress, so we do provide live streaming for parents through a secure link for all of our youth classes, so you can feel confident in keeping up with everything going on remotely.   If you need to catch up on some much needed ‘me-time’,  simply drop them off, and go grab a coffee.  They will greet you with a huge smile when you return, because they had SO much fun!

We love for our parents to be involved!  And so do their kids.  Even better… join into some of our Jiu-jitsu classes for adults. Your kids will love that you have something in common, and it’s a great way to build a strong family bond!  We even have a special “Family Class” where parents and their kids can train together!

Don’t worry, equipment for Jiu-jitsu training is minimal, and we will take care of everything you need! A white Official Royce Gracie Jiu-jitsu Network gi (uniform) and team rash guard is all that is required.  Ask how you can take advantage of our limited time signup bonus offer, to save on your complete training uniform! We even provide rental uniforms for the convenience of our students, in case you forget yours, or didn’t have time to launder it between classes.

Yes! Private and semi-private (up to 4 people) Jiu-Jitsu classes are available at Royce Gracie Academy of Lake Norman in Denver.  You can book an individual 30 or 60 minute class, or we also offer discounted multiple private class packages. Private classes are setup on an individual basis, so we can best accommodate your schedule. Contact us to schedule a class! 

We do not believe in using belt promotions as a marketing or retention tool. Everyone progresses at their own pace, based upon the amount of time that they dedicate to training.

Our youth & adult Jiu-jitsu programs have their own separate ranking structure. Jiu-Jitsu does not have “youth black belts”, as there is a certain level of maturity and demonstrated skill required to hold this prestigious rank. Once youth students reach age 16, they are graduated into the adult belt system. While we generally promote our youth students at a more accelerated rate than our adult students, we believe that training for self-improvement is its own reward, and promotions are just a side effect of hard work & marker of progress. We have minimum time and attendance requirements, however, every student is promoted on an individual basis, based upon actual demonstrated ability, as well as consistent attendance, personal character, and dedication to the program. Promotions are earned, not given.

A black belt is just a white belt that didn’t quit! 

There are many different “styles” of martial arts out there, and to the average person, it can be hard to understand the difference. However, all martial arts are NOT created equal. While demonstrations of “kata” and board breaking look impressive to the uninitiated, these feats are largely useless in an actual physical confrontation. Gracie Jiu-jitsu has developed a reputation for being one of the most effective martial arts for realistic self defense, because of its hands on approach and training methodology. 
 
The art of Jiu-jitsu was developed over years of trial and error research through actual live combat. The Gracie family spent years constantly testing and refining their art through challenge matches against all comers from various forms of martial arts from all over the world to determine what techniques were most effective and efficient in actual fights. This ultimately would lead to the development by Rorion Gracie of the first Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), of which his brother Royce Gracie became the first representative of the family and first UFC champion, proving the effectiveness of his art against multiple opponents in one night in a no-rules, anything goes format!
 
One of the things that makes Jiu-jitsu so effective is the “liveness” of the training. While techniques must be learned first in a controlled environment with a cooperative partner, every position & technique is eventually practiced through live sparring against a resisting opponent. This is the ONLY way to realistically develop the timing, sensitivity, and confidence in the technique. In addition, because Jiu-jitsu focuses on efficiency of movement and the use of positional control and leverage over brute force, anyone can learn to be effective with the techniques of Jiu-jitsu, even against a larger, stronger, more athletic adversary. 

With multiple black belt instructors on staff personally tested and promoted by the legendary Royce Gracie himself, you can’t get closer to the original source than right here at Royce Gracie Academy of Lake Norman in Denver! 

While competition is not the primary focus of what we do, there are definitely opportunities for students to compete at all levels for those who are interested. Our team has many active competitors and we fully support those who choose to compete, however it is certainly never required. 

Not at all.  In fact, many students starting in our martial arts classes would describe themselves like that before they started.  So you will fit right in!

Give yourself some time, and you will be astounded at how much you improve!  You’ll find that our experienced professional Jiu-jitsu instructors, are great at making seemingly complex movements and concepts  simple.  You will be amazed at what you can do!

The techniques of Jiu-jitsu are the PERFECT tool to give your child the ability to effectively defend themselves in a physical altercation. Because our youth Jiu-jitsu program emphasizes the use of grappling based techniques over striking techniques, it is also one of the MOST HUMANE ways for your child to protect themselves! Through consistent practice, they will develop the ability to safely neutralize physical aggression WITHOUT the need to inflict any injury to a potential bully. In these days of “zero-tolerance” policies in schools, it is much better to simply immobilize and control a bully, than relying on punches and kicks that are less likely to be effective, may only increase the aggression, and look really bad when a student is left bleeding and potentially injured after the incident. 
 
However, there is more to the program than the physical techniques.  Often times, bullying doesn’t rise to the level of a physical attack, but that doesn’t make it any less damaging to your child’s psyche. The most common form of bullying is verbal bullying-name calling, teasing, harassment. Our Bullyproof system ALSO gives your child the tools to know how to effectively stand up for themselves verbally, and avoid a physical altercation, using a systematic, step-by-step approach. It will also give your child specific steps to use, as well as guidance on when and how it is ok to use the physical techniques of Jiu-jitsu to protect themselves, should the need arise. 
What value would you place on having the confidence to know that you can effectively defend yourself or your family, get in great shape, and develop greater self-confidence?
