Our Programs focus on instilling a hard work ethic, a positive attitude, and a love for the Jiu Jitsu lifestyle.  As both a martial art and contact sport, this is a great opportunity for students to learn how to succeed in the academy so they can succeed in life. Classes include techniques, physical drills, games, and live training.  

We offer one free trial class and encourage you to come enjoy with no commitment.


To excel in any endeavor, individuals need to have a strong set of values and a solid character that gives them perseverance to achieve his or her goals. The Gracie Kona Youth Program was created to provide children ages 5-15 with an environment that allows them to experience and understand core values like focus, discipline, persistence, cooperation and respect.

As a contact sport, Gracie Kona Jiu-Jitsu provides a very challenging, yet safe and caring environment for a child to mature in real life. The outcome of continued childhood practice of jiu-jitsu goes far beyond the accomplishments on the mats. The discipline and excellence demanded by our instructors often carries over to the child’s behavior at home and at school.


Your time in class is what you make of it. The Academy is here to not only teach you an important form of self-defense, but also to serve as an outlet for whatever is negative in your personal life. Ultimately, the lessons learned on the mat can be applied to daily life, making jiu-jitsu not just a class for training, but a unique way to build confidence, healthy decision making, self respect, and a living lifestyle.
