Evolution Combative Mastery
There are five levels of certification at which an instructor can be recognized

 

Level 1: Combative

Level 2: Combatives+ blue belt + Panda BJJ program

Level 3: Purple Belt + Back system

Level 4: Brown belt / Bllack Belt

Level 5: Black Belt + Kimura system

All instructors begin at Level 1. At this level, they are authorized to teach the Evolution Combative.

Panda BJJ Program
Upon successfully completing the Level 1 Certification Program, you will also be authorized to teach the Panda BJJ Program To ensure you are prepared for Panda BJJ program , you must own and be very familiar with the Panda BJJ program (on DVD or online).

Once an individual successfully completes the instructor program, they are authorized to establish a Certified Evolution Martial arts school in one of three ways:

1. Certify your own school.
If you currently own an established school of martial arts - TMA, MMA, or BJJ - or you are an instructor at an established school, we can designate your existing martial arts school as a Certified EVO Center.

 

2. Open a new school.
If you have the resources and the desire, you may open a brand new school that would offer the Evolution Programs and, therefore, be recognized as a EVO center

 

3. Partner with an existing school.

If you don't own a school and you don't have the resources to start a new school, you can partner with an existing school in your community to offer the EVO programs programs at that location. This usually works best at a traditional martial arts school that does not offer Brazilian jiu jitsu. You get a place to teach, and they get to add Evolution program to their school offerings. Everybody wins!

You do not need to decide which Certified Training Center establishment method you will use until after you complete the Instructor Certification Program. But you must know that, in addition to you getting certified, the actual school must meet the following minimum requirements to be deemed a EVO Center:

 

Sufficient Mat Space
The school must have at least 1000 square feet of grappling mat space.

 

Territory Availability
All EVO school are given an exclusive territory in which to operate. Regardless of where you are in your jiu-jitsu journey, if your goal is to establish a EVO one day, the most important thing is to verify that the territory is available. Once it is confirmed to be available,

 

Liability Insurance
The school must have a standard $1,000,000 general liability insurance policy in which Gracie University is listed as “Additionally Insured”.

 

Strong Reputation
If you establish a CTC at an existing location, the school, and its respective owners, must have a good reputation in the community. If it is a new school, we will verify your reputation during the probationary period.

Licensing Fees
Although participation in the ICP requires only a one-time flat fee, all CTCs pay a nominal monthly licensing fee that is contingent on the success of the Gracie University programs. There is no long-term commitment and you can cancel the licensing fees at any time.
