G.R.A.C.I.E. Law Enforcement Course


G.R.A.C.I.E™ is the defensive tactics and weapons retention course created by the legendary Royce Gracie, 3-Time Ultimate Fighting Champion. Royce earned his title by defeating his opponents using Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, proving the effectiveness of leverage and technique over strength and size. Royce has incorporated these defensive tactics into a comprehensive training course specifically designed for law enforcement. Like many skills, defensive tactics are perishable, therefore the G.R.A.C.I.E™ program teaches simple and automatic, rapid yet smooth actions. The G.R.A.C.I.E™ program is the “only” defensive tactics program that truly gets officers to properly defend their weapons in any and all altercations. The G.R.A.C.I.E™ program has been used by the US Special Forces, DEA agents and many national and international police departments.

  • 47.9% of officers injured or killed in a line of duty is attributed to loss of their weapon
  • Current hand cuffing procedures do not take in to account criminal escalation of the incidents.
  • 95% of all confrontations and fights end up on the ground.
  • Current Defensive Tactical Programs available are ineffective and officers resort to using brute strength and sheer will power to overcome a suspect/criminal, resulting in potential loss of their weapon or serious injury to the officer.
  • Technique is emphasized instead of strength. “ALL” officers can accomplish this no matter size, strength or gender.
  • Automatic rapid response needs to be made in an altercation. Offensive vs. defensive mindset is emphasized before, during and after the altercation.
