In the late 1920s Grand Master Helio Gracie started developing Gracie or Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu after he realized that he was too frail to utilize the traditional Japanese Jiu-Jitsu techniques. Over the past 80 years, Gracie Jiu-Jitsu has proven to be the most reliable system for a smaller person to defeat a larger, more athletic opponent. The techniques of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu are based on precise timing and effective use of leverage so that virtually anyone can do them, man or woman, regardless of their age or athletic ability.
Main Line Gracie Jiu-Jitsu was founded in 2009. It is a Certified Training Center affiliated to the Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Academy in Torrance, CA under Grand Master Rorion Gracie. The head instructor – Alberto Robayo – is a certified Gracie Jiu Jitsu brown belt with over ten years of experience. Alberto was an instructor at the Gracie Academy for four years. In 2009 he moved to Pennsylvania to start a Gracie Jiu-Jitsu school, operating out of Bryn Mawr, PA.
