Avoid Fights at School, Defend Yourself Against Bigger Opponents, and Get Stronger

Have you ever been minding your own business and been harassed by another guy at school? Looking for a way to avoid fights? And even defend yourself if you have to?

Martial arts are specially designed to help a smaller opponent defeat a bigger opponent.

Defeat Bigger Stronger Opponent

Royce Gracie, one of the legends of modern jiu-jitsu fighting, used Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to dominate UFC in its early years. He fought against masters of other forms of martial arts and beat them even though he was smaller than most.


At Gracie Lake Norman, we teach our students these same martial arts fundamentals so they can use them against bigger attackers. Our instructors are Black and Brown belts in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, karate, judo, and mixed martial arts.


Our training can turn even a brand new martial arts student into strong, capable fighting experts.

Train based on what happens in a fight

Our head instructor, Ranard Brown, is a 1st-degree black belt in Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. He studied under the 7th-degree Coral Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Luiz Palhares. Ranard also spent 14 years studying under Coral Belt, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu master, and UFC legend Royce Gracie. Ranard coached and trained to UFC fighters.


Co-instructor Mike Bertram also has a black belt in Gracie Jiu-Jitsu and has trained more than 50 jiu-jitsu champions.
