About us

Renzo Gracie Academy Cape Town was formed in 2006 and was one of the first Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu academies in South Africa. With Professor Kurdt George at the helm, who was awarded his black belt under Renzo Gracie and John Danaher, our academy boasts a high-level BJJ curriculum and has some of the country’s most successful grapplers under the RGA banner.

Along with our thorough Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu programme, we also offer Boxing and Muay Thai classes, along with fun and informative Kids BJJ classes.

Our academy is situated in the Mother City’s business hub. Perfectly placed for those who work in the CBD, and an easy drive for those coming in from the suburbs. The academy is also a favourite for the globetrotting athletes who want to get in a class or two while visiting the city for business or for pleasure.
