The GJJNE, headquartered in Zurich and operational in many European countries, is proud to be able to offer the highest level of education at any affiliated partner school. The professional supervision of Franco Vacirca and his Black belt team will ensure that every aspect of this modern and effective martial art is taught, as Professor Franco learned from his teacher Pedro Hemetério, the most capable master-student of Grandmaster Carlos Gracie and Hélio Gracie.
GJJNE become a teacher
The “Gracie Fundamentals” class program and Master Rickson Gracie's Self-Defense Unit program form the basis of the GJJNE foundation. Our Team Leaders and Teachers abide by these basics, which gives our GJJ students the Blue belt program correctly. In addition, it is up to the teacher which techniques he / she will teach for his / her school / group, even if we (at Gracie Zuerich) continue to follow the recommendations and examination programs of the JJGF.
The VB Path of GJJ Excellence
Our members, regardless of their level of experience, can take part in various seminars and training courses. As a connected team leader / teacher you also have the following options:
- The participation in the intensive workshops at the Gracie Zurich; If you are an affiliated school, you (or your personally chosen assistant) can attend these workshops for free-of-charge. Other members (their school / group) pay a reduced workshop / seminar fee.
- People who are several kilometers away and can’t visit us regularly, please send every 3-4 months, a 30-minute video, where we can recognize the teacher and his students in a class format, so we can try to provide you with some feedback about your training / teaching. However, the graduation must take place personally.
