Welcome to our Academy. The primary focus of Ralph Gracie - Bend is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ). This highly effective martial art was created by Carlos Gracie in the early 20th century from the teaching of Judo master Mitsuo Maeda and was developed into a fighting style that is renowned for its effectiveness.

The art of BJJ is a very positive addition to any lifestyle with huge development in fitness, agility, self-confidence and general physical and mental well being. Our goal is to provide quality training in a friendly and welcoming environment.
