In 1925 Carlos Gracie established the first Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Academy in Brazil. Following in his Grandfather's foot steps Charles Gracie moved to America to continue spreading the art of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, opening the first Charles Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Academy in Daly City, CA in 1997.
To accommodate the expansion of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, the Charles Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Academy in Tracy was established in 2005. Not only is the Tracy location one of the largest martial arts academies in California, but it is also the national headquarters for the entire Charles Gracie Association.

"Love the Gracie academy. Great family environment. The coaches are so nice and considerate. Always friendly and willing to answer any questions asked. Love the detail to technique taught to the kids and the individual attention each child gets. Would highly recommend them for children and adults."W D.
"Where do I start? Both my children have been training here at Charles Gracie for the past 5 years. The staff is professional and amazing with the students. Give your children or yourself the gift of learning from the Gracies. Charles and his team is a class act."Melinda B.
"Great place for my niece to learn the discipline of Jiu Jitsu but not my cup of tea. Should I even say "cup of tea" for a place where they could kill you with one kick?! Ok I am embellishing...a LOT! They take things very seriously here and aren't teaching people how to kill one another (PHEW!)."Steven G.
