We invite you to explore our website and get insight on how to start your journey of self discovery through martial arts. For us it is truly "Fitness With A Purpose." You will learn self defense, improve your health, fitness, and overall lifestyle. Once you have identified potential schools we recommend you to:

• Go to each school and watch a class or two.
• If you feel comfortable participate in a few classes. One class is not enough.
• Ask questions about everything of interest to you before and during your trial.
• Get to know the instructor and students during your trial. Do you have common interests and goals?
• Take notes on your observations.
• Sit down and write pros and cons to clearly identify which school is best for you.

If you have little or no jiu-jitsu experience and you're intimidated about the idea of joining a school, you can go to and watch the first three lessons for free. If you like what you see, then you should come and try our 10-day FREE trial. The video below will help you ask the right questions so you can find the perfect jiu-jitsu/Martial Arts school for you.

“Most martial arts schools limit you to only one free trial class. At Gracie Fort Collins, 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/martial arts 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)." - E.Barber
