Royce Gracie To Adopt Fighting Foundations Program In All His Network Academies

In a move that was 10 years in the making, Royce Gracie announced that he would adopt the Fighting Foundations program in every academy. All Gracie Network academies will offer training under the Royce Gracie Fighting Foundations name. Royce has always been committed to his father’s vision, but Grandmaster Helio Gracie’s training methods are strict. The fact that Royce Gracie’s students are so willing to accept these methods indicates just how dedicated they really are.

The new curriculum will heavily stress proper execution of the fundamentals that serve as the building blocks for sophisticated BJJ techniques. A new emphasis on practical applications is part of this paradigm shift. Instructors will also emphasize how to handle situations involving modern weapons. The Valente brothers are completely onboard with these changes. They’ve been strong proponents of Grandmaster Helio Gracie’s methods, and they hoped that these techniques would become more popular over time.

Royce Gracie announced that he will be adopting the Fighting Foundations™ program in all his Network academies. This process began nearly 10 years. Today, this became a reality through Royce’s commitment to his fathers vision and his students’ willingness to embrace Grandmaster Helio’s method.
