Grappling Concepts of Nixa, Missouri, is lead by instructors Michael Leake and Royce Amsden, and part of the Grappling Concepts/RGDA Gracie Jiu Jitsu St. Louis family. We are a proud affiliate of Royler Gracie and David Adiv RGDA Gracie Jiu Jitsu under the instruction of JW Wright, a black belt under Royler Gracie and David Adiv. Gracie Brazilian Jiu Jitsu was made famous by Royce Gracie in the first Ultimate Fighting Championships and to this day is used by all mixed martial arts fighters. Jiu Jitsu is also used in self defense, grappling tournaments and by law enforcement and military personnel.
Techniques are designed so that a smaller person can defend themselves against a larger attacker using leverage and submission holds. This allows people of all ages and athletic ability to train in Gracie Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, MMA and Kick Boxing classes.
Whether you want to compete in mixed martial arts or grappling tournaments, want to get in to shape or want to walk with confidence knowing you can defend yourself in any situation, Gracie Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is for you.
