You may not want to fight, but sometimes it’s unavoidable.
You’re worried that you’ll panic if you’re attacked.
Learning to defend yourself can result in injuries.
Jiu Jitsu is an effective fighting technique...
They don’t address the proper techniques for self-defense in real-world situations. What you learn on the mat should translate to the rest of your life.
The key is learning proven self-defense techniques in a safe and supportive environment that encourages discipline and empowerment.
Results and growth with every class!
Gracie Combatives® is a cycle of 23 self-defense classes that teaches the 36 most useful Brazilian Jiu Jitsu moves, so you can use them to defend yourself. You’ll learn the basics, then you’ll learn how to combine them to de-escalate fights when possible, and disable your attacker when necessary.
Learn the 36 Most Effective Moves
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu consists of more than 600 moves that may be used in combination either in sparring or in self-defense. We’ve identified the moves that work the best in real combat and put them into one course.
The moves we teach are appropriate for beginners, but they also work at the highest levels of competition. In other words, what you learn in Gracie Combatives® can be the basis for competition if that’s what you want.
Best of all, the moves we teach are designed to be combined to make them more effective. Once you’ve mastered them, you can move on to Reflex Development classes to learn how to combine them.
Learn in a Safe and Secure Environment
One of the most common reasons people quit Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is because they get hurt. Students sometimes say that they feel like they’re walking into enemy territory when they get to the gym.
Gracie Combatives® is designed with safety in mind. We believe that you don’t need to hurt each other on the mat to defend yourself in the street.
You’ll learn how to do the best self-defense techniques without hurting yourself in class. In other words, you can save the real combat for the streets – where you’ll need it.
A Proven Structure That Works
Traditional martial arts classes require you to start at the beginning and attend every class to complete your training. We designed Gracie Combatives® with convenience in mind.
The basic Gracie Combatives® curriculum consists of 23, one-hour classes. In each class, you’ll learn one standing technique and one ground technique.
Best of all, you can start the cycle at any time. As long as you complete all 23 classes in the cycle, you can move toward earning your belt.
Start at Any Age or Fitness Level
One of the core requirements of any self-defense technique is that it should be useful whether you have a martial arts background or not – and whether you’re already in great shape or not.
The Gracie Combatives® curriculum is a beginner curriculum. Even if you’ve never stepped on a mat before, you can start with any class and work your way through it.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu teaches you how to use your opponent’s body weight and momentum to defend yourself, so you can put the moves to work at any fitness level or age.
Great atmosphere, good workout. The JiuJitsu has been great but the people at Phoenix Quest have been even greater!
The Gracie classes are great, the instructor is nice, and the students are the best training partners. I feel welcome every time I come in.
I have been coming to the PQC for a little over 2 yrs now. And this is by far the best Martial arts class i have ever attended, From the first day I walked in the door i was learning real techniques i could use. I didn't have to go home and practice Kata patterns over & over again. I learned real techniques that i could use right away! I didn't have to wait months to finally learn something. So i signed up both of my kids right away and they love it. They say that they feel like thay can really defend themselves and have more confidence. Thank you again for everything PQC!
This place is great! My son has learned so much in such a short amount of time! It’s their attention to detail and knowledge that makes this training outstanding. My son’s confidence has increased as quickly as his skill. His skillful ability to protect himself from larger opponents, both in size and height, is a credit to the training at Gracie Jiu-Jitsu in Chandler. In addition, I would strongly recommend this type of detailed training to young ladies as the mean to protect themselves from would be attackers.
Our son has loved training here for the past several months. The black belts who lead the beginners classes are knowledgeable and professional, and they're also great with kids. The training program is designed to address not only physical fitness and self-defense, but also aspects of character, such as good manners and citizenship. Everyone at QMA is enthusiastic, courteous, and helpful, and we've found the experience of working with them to be a very positive influence on our 10-year-old. Highly recommended!

Some Jiu Jitsu classes don’t focus on safety, but that’s not the case with Gracie Combatives. We put our students’ safety first. Our motto is “You don’t have to fight on the mat to defend yourself on the street.”
The only thing you need is a traditional gi – the loose-fitting white top and pants that you’ve probably seen in other martial arts classes.
No. We’ve designed Gracie Combatives to work as a cycle. You can start with any lesson and cycle through the 23 lessons that make up the course.
