We started our kids here a few months ago and have nothing but great things to say about Gracie Durham and especially the owner, Sunny. He and his staff have such a wonderful way with kids it has been a delight to watch them have such fun while learning the basics of Jiu Jitsu. Sunny makes it easy for your kids to come and check it out and see if it’s a good fit for them. Highly recommended!

Any Gracie CTC is great in that they are certified by the Gracie family themselves out of Torrence California. This one is excellent in how Sunny not only talks through techniques, but also how he analyzes different possibilities with and for you. Excellent coaching and instructor.

Gracie Jiu Jitsu is an awesome place! Sunny is a GREAT instructor, very laid back and understanding. I've learned a lot in just 6 months. I would definitely recommend GJJ!! :)

When I think of Jiu Jitsu, Gracie Durham is what pops in my mind. There is a major focus on execution of the techniques, the theory behind it, the ideas that transcend what is being taught. It is a very approachable school, and the curriculum is Gracie. Very solid school! Sunny runs a phenomenal class. Easy going and funny guy, too. He encourages questions, is able to break down the reasoning behind is answers, which I believe, allows a Jiu Jitsu practitioner to eventually make the art their own. The people there are the nicest folks I have met. It really is a great community, and I am proud to be a part of it. If you are looking to learn pure Gracie Jiu Jitsu, this is the place to do it. Great lessons, great teachers, great students, and the facility is amazing! Thank you Sunny and class. Proud to be a part of this amazing institution!

An outstanding atmosphere and curriculum for regular people to learn practical self-defense. When you train here, you are part of a team dedicated to building confidence and skill, with great respect for our mutual safety. For people of all shapes and sizes that want to learn street self defense, Gracie Durham is the best place to start.
