Approaching the art of Jiu-Jitsu as a lifelong journey, the Gracie Barra Foundation seeks to support students as they engage in a learning program that rewards their dedication and consistency. The program of study, developed by Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Master Carlos Gracie Jr., was designed to help students in an organic progression from white belt to black belt.
The Gracie Barra Programs are focused on six different elements that include Curriculum, Pre-Requisite, Class, Minimum Attendance, Training Methods and Belt System. The goal of the program is to provide an environment and structure that encourages motivation, achievement, and practice.
Students in Gracie Barra programs begin by learning the general Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu self-defense strategy, followed by the Gracie Barra Fundamentals Program. Once students learn the techniques, they continue to the advanced program. This typically occurs after four months of training. Once the training in the advanced program is fulfilled, the student can move on to the Gracie Barra Black Belt Program. In the black belt program, students develop their unique style as they are introduced to more advanced techniques and strategies.
In addition to working as a head instructor at Gracie Barra Spring Lake, Rafael Jovet-Ramos is the Program Director for Rafael Family Mixed Martial Arts Academy and a self-defense instructor at Fayetteville Technical Community College.
