Relson Gracie Academy Colorado, located in Littleton, focuses on any different aspects of Jiu-Jitsu. Student knowledge and satisfaction is what we strive for. The source of our Jiu-Jitsu is from the core of the Gracie family. The teachings and theory are all the same that have been passed from generation to generation, nothing has changed.
We do not promote or encourage any sort of violence we completely do the opposite. Our academy allows people to learn self-defense, self-control, discipline and much more traits that are needed for success. The world has shown many of times that if not prepared it can be a menacing place, especially for the people with a frail physique. Our goal is to give that person the edge. The impact doesn’t just end in individuals but also goes as far as our community.
Our academy is full of features that allows student to have a safe and fun learning environment, with over 1,600 square feet of mat space, locker rooms, waiting area and a Relson Gracie black belt, with daily classes including a kids program, self-defense and traditional Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. This allows the Relson Gracie Colorado team to function more like a family. Just like a family everyone does their part to help each other to become more successful. Many people have their reason to begin training. Some have the urge to try something new others have the motive to become a fighter or just to get in shape. Whatever your motive is we would like to invite you to help us pave the future.
Integrity, intelligence and intensity are words that fall short in fully describing jiu- jitsu professor Steve Hordinski, of Relson Gracie Colorado. Steve Hordinski began his martial arts career with Kenpo Karate and quickly became a Kenpo Karate black belt. He later enlisted into the Navy, and became a deep-sea diver. In 1997, while in the Navy, he trained with Phil Cardella in Hawaii, where he was stationed. This was the beginning of his journey to achieve his black belt in Jiu-Jitsu. During his training he was able to train with the likes of grappling greats like, Daniel Moraes, Fredson Alves, Relson Gracie, and the legendary Helio Gracie himself. His hard work and dedication led him to live with the man that would change his life forever, Relson Gracie. Through the vast knowledge and careful guidance of Relson, Steve received his black belt in Gracie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
Some arguments are made about us not being the only ones with these characteristics and we will give them the benefit of the doubt.
The true statement is that we are an extension of the MAIN SOURCE. We ARE RELSON GRACIE JIU-JITSU Academy in Colorado.
