I could NOT recommend the Women Empowered program more!! I tell basically every woman in my life about it. I was so nervous to try something so far out of my comfort zone, but it's turned into my favorite part of the week. From the moment you arrive, you're greeted with open arms and step-by-step instruction. Every class is an absolute blast, and the instructors are always eager to help and celebrate your progress. Plus, you're learning some insanely effective and essential strategies for staying safe as a woman. If you're on the fence about it—try it. You'll love it!

My son has been participating in BJJ at Memorial Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for over two years now. The staff are exceptional - kind and fun to the kiddos, but firm and demanding respect. My son's confidence level has risen so much with BJJ. Thank you so much Jackson and Rafael for your love of these kiddos!

Such an AMAZING Jiu-Jitsu academy! Jackson is an excellent instructor and the curriculum at this school is second to none! We’ll definitely stop by to jump on the mat the next time I’m in the neighborhood! A++++

I’ve been going to the Women Empowered program at Gracie Jiujitsu Houston for over a year.
I love the method that they use guiding you to work with the power of your mind and strength of your body. So many times we think that using force will be the best way to defeat a stranger. But they actually teach you how to use techniques that will be much more powerful than just fighting.

Love this place!!! So glad I found Gracie Jiujitsu Houston and made it my home! I trained Jiujitsu many years ago at a different gym but the training was so unorganized and caused many injuries to students, including myself. I hesitated to go back to jiujitsu because most schools throw inexperienced people in a room and say "go at it"! This leads to a ton of injuries.

NOT at GJJ Houston!!! I came to a free seminar at this Gracie Certified Training Center in Houston run by Professor Jackson Fortunato. This gym runs a very structured and very safe school that is backed with an amazing curriculum created by Gracie University. They believe everyone can learn jiujitsu and not have to worry about the "only the strong belong" mentality. Everyone is super nice and welcoming. They have classes for every age and everyone in the family! Come out and try a free 10 day trial at an awesome place to train!
