Spanning four generations, the Gracie name is legendary in the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu world! Ralph Gracie, third generational fighter, opened his first academy in 1994 and has continued to expand.
The Vacaville Academy is dedicated to developing the Jiu-Jitsu lifestyle for all ages and abilities. Our goal is to create a learning environment where our students develop courage, discipline, and respect.
We believe Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is more than martial arts. It is a tool used to grow self-awareness through body and mind. Students have also accredited other successes in life from following the Jiu-Jitsu formula.
With 11 students entering competition in our first year of being opened, we have obtained 8 Gold medals along with 2 Silvers medals!
