Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Kids Self Defense in Houston

BJJ is for Everybody

 Brazilian Jiu Jitsu offers everybody - regardless of age, gender, or physical strength - the opportunity to learn effective self defense in a fun, safe environment. To cater to different ability and experience levels, we offer two levels of BJJ classes. 


 We offer classes in Gi, NoGi, advanced, beginning fundamentals and self-defense classes for adults. 


People start training martial arts for many different reasons: fitness, fun, self-defense, self-confidence, competition, or maybe just for a hobby. Regardless of the reason, you'll notice benefits both on and off the mats. Jiu jitsu will teach you how to effectively overcome opponents who are bigger or stronger than you, all in a safe environment. Jiu jistu is more than just a martial art though, it's a community. You'll make new friends, gain confidence, and get fit! 


 Our advanced classes focus on more difficult techniques, and how to link those techniques together into a sequence. Everyone at Rilion Gracie Academy push one another to be stronger and more technical, a spirit espoused and practiced by all of our members. 


We take great pride in our kid's program. These are our future champions. Martial arts don't just teach self-defense. They teach discipline, respect, focus, and empathy. Our kid's programs are focused on making learning defense techniques not only fun, but educational. The lessons your child learns on the mat will be carried with them off the mat, and throughout the rest of their life, as well. Parents always tell us stories of how their child used the lessons they used in jiu-jitsu class to deal with bullies, work harder on their homework, or stand up for a friend. Plus, they get a great workout and make new friends! 

Basic Program


Rilion Gracie Academy offers a two-fold approach to developing skills for Kids and Juniors.

Each class consists of physical exercises, self-defense techniques and educational games.

Our method will develop your child's coordination, confidence,  agility, and flexibility in a fun and safe environment.

Self Defense

Be confident in any situation. Knowing how to defend yourself is one of the most important skills everybody should have. Learning proper techniques that allow you to effectively disarm a threatening situation will give you the confidence to take on anything.

Women's Violence Prevention

Women can use the self defense techniques learned in Jiu Jitsu to prevent attacks, since most attacks occur or end on the ground. Strategic grips and proper application of leverage and body weight distribution allows women to escape from attackers standing or on the ground.
