                                                                             Attention Walnut Creek,

    It's time to shed the old and embrace the essence! Ralph Gracie Walnut Creek is transforming into Essence, a Jiu-Jitsu academy built on our own principles and values. We're not just changing our name, we're creating a unique experience that reflects who we are.

    Why the change? We believe in the transformative power of Jiu-Jitsu, but we also believe in doing things our own way. Essence reflects our commitment to providing the highest quality service, built on the pillars of professionalism, trust, organization, and integrity. Here, you'll find more than just techniques; you'll discover a supportive family environment, where everyone feels welcomed, respected, and appreciated.


    Essence is more than just a gym, it's a community. We believe Jiu-Jitsu is the essence of a healthy and successful life, and we're here to share that essence with you. Join us on this exciting journey and discover the true potential within yourself and your community.  Let's train together, grow together, and thrive together at Essence!
