Gracie Jiu Jitsu

Functional Edge MMA is the only certified center in Sierra Vista for Gracie Jiu-Jitsu

Gracie Jiu-Jitsu was designed to give you effective self defense skill during real encounters. It was designed to teach you how to use body mechanics and leverage to allow you to survive and win against a larger and stronger opponent. Gracie Jiu-Jitsu does this by teaching you strategic body positioning and intelligent alignment of the bone structure of your body and not by the use of strength. Gracie Jiu-Jitsu has become one of the most proven effective martial arts in the world as well as one of the most popular.

Coach Torres teaches this program under the direction of Professor Alan Baker of Atlanta Martial Arts Center.

Our Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Lineage - Professor Alan Baker received his Black Belt from 8th Degree Master Pedro Sauer, one of the highest ranking Gracie Jiu-Jitsu instructors in the world. Master Sauer received his rank from Helio Gracie and Rickson Gracie.

Professor Alan has been training in the martial arts since 1981 and teaching since 1990. He is one of only a hand full of certified affiliate instructors under Master Sauer.
