Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Madison

Fitness With A Purpose ...

"Most martial arts schools limit you to only one free trial class. At Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Madison, we offer new students a FREE 10-day trial that includes a loaner uniform and unlimited access to all of our beginner group classes. We’re confident that the class structure, the camaraderie, and high quality instruction will convince you to let us guide you on your path of jiu-jitsu mastery. If it’s not exactly what you are looking for, we will never charge you a penny (the only requirement is that you return the loaner uniform that we provided to you).” - Coach Houston Cottrell.
