Preface. Congratulations! By enrolling in the Global Training Program you are now an official student of the Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Academy. The Gracie Combatives course is the first step in your quest for Gracie Jiu-Jitsu mastery - a lengthy, but immensely rewarding journey that will culminate in a week-long test for black belt at the Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Academy in Torrance, California. We have designed the Gracie Combatives course to take you from "potential victim" to "street ready" in the least amount of time possible through mastery of the most important and effective Gracie Jiu-Jitsu techniques. By mastering all variations of the 36 essential techniques featured on the DVDs, you will be eligible for promotion to blue belt. This handbook consists of four sections: 1) Introduction 2) Progress Tracking 3) The Blue Belt Qualification Test 4) The Path to Black Belt The key to Gracie Combatives success is to take your time in completing the course and to focus on the details of each lesson. Do this, and when the time comes to take the Blue Belt Qualification Test, your performance will meet, or exceed, the Gracie Academy standards. Ryron and I are deeply indebted to our grandfather, Grand Master Helio Gracie, for creating the most effective system of self-defense the world has ever known. We are especially grateful to our father, Rorion Gracie, for dedicating his life to the preservation of the techniques and principles of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu and for teaching them to us so that we could commit our lives to empowering others.
