Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Academy in Torrance, CA (just outside of LA, near LAX) is famous for having two authentic Gracies (Rener and Ryron) as head coaches. Their large gym boasts a number of different approaches to the Gentle Art, with applications for law enforcement professionals as well as kids who deal with bullies at school.
But what do the people think of Gracie Academy? Many people online seem to love the gym, with mostly perfect reviews and the occasional unsatisfied customer (which is rare). If you don’t know about Rener and Ryron, you should look up some of their famous Gracie Breakdowns on Youtube – in which they provide detailed analysis, instruction and commentary on fights (whether they are inside a cage, on a mat, or on the streets).
Overall, the gym looks very welcoming toward families as well as anybody determined to excel in the Gracie BJJ system.
