Welcome to the homepage of the Gracie Humaita Israel - Tree of Life - BJJ


Under the direction of coach Marcos Gorinstein the academy functions in community centers and schools in Jerusalem and Modiin Modiin and offers Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes a technique of self-defense, standing and on the ground - and MMA (Mixed Martial Arts).


Children from 5 years old can now enjoy all the benefits offered by the practice of the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in a familiar and professional atmosphere. Practicing helps students to develop self-confidence by learning to defend themselves in adverse situations.


The martial art and the classes are based on a set of rules that promote the knowledge and respect of each participant's physical boundaries, so we learn how to train, defend ourselves and protect the other at the same time. this practice develops and increases the capability of self-responsibility and responsibility towards the one who trains with you. It increases mutual respect and respect of the personal boundaries of the trainees.


Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu trainees learn how to use physical movement and leverage to manage the fight using less strength and more brain. Since the fight takes place on the ground the difference in size and physical strength loses much of its meaning. These factors differ Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu from other martial arts.


The sport as a tool of education is a great way to encourage integration between different people. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is perfect for this. Our philosophy is to teach the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu as a common language between the participants, allowing them to meet and know each other and to build trust between them.


Jiu Jitsu it’s much more than a martial art, self-defense and a sport. Is a way to learn about yourself, about the other and about life.
