This thesis explores a new way to teach industrial design sketching (IDS) based on The Gracie Combatives Program (GC), a training program originally designed to teach the art of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, also known as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ), to members of The United States Army. In this thesis, teaching methods in GC are adapted to teach IDS, resulting in a unique training program. The application of this thesis is demonstrated through the creation of a training program handbook.
