Chapel Hill Gracie Jiu Jitsu is part of the Royce Gracie Network of schools ( Jiu jitsu is a martial art designed to protect you from a larger, aggressive opponent. Focusing on using proper leverage and technique, jiu jitsu enables the smaller practitioner to escape, evade, or neutralize the more violent attacker.  

"Always assume that your opponent is going to be bigger, stronger and faster than you; so that you learn to rely on technique, timing and leverage rather than brute strength" - Helio Gracie
