Tameside Gracie Jiu Jitsu opened in 2013 - we are one of only a handful of Certified Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Training Centres in the UK authorised to teach the exact curriculum’s taught at the world famous Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Academy in California. Our aim is to provide the best possible experience for all of our students, regardless of age, gender or athletic ability.

The friendly environment of Tameside Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is one of its most distinguishing characteristics. While most other Martial Arts schools promote an egotistical “tough guy” environment, which can be very unwelcoming and dangerous for the students, we are very concerned with making each and every trip to the our school safe, fun and encouraging for all students, especially those with little or no experience. We expect all students to display the utmost respect and courtesy towards one another and to maintain safety as their first priority. Students who do not follow this code of conduct are not welcome at the training centre.



Head Instructor: Alex Morton
Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Blue Belt Stripe 2


Alex has been training Martial Arts for over 16 years, gained his Second Dan Black Belt in Freestyle Martial Arts, trained with some of the most respected martial artists in the world and is currently a Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Blue Belt. 


From an early age, Alex recognised that it didn't matter how many world championships someone had, sometimes these people simply didn't have the personality to share that knowledge with others. 


Since the age of 13 Alex has been perfecting different teaching methodologies that enable him to effectively share this information to people of all ages in a clear, interesting and easy to understand manner.


Alex attended and passed the Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Academy Instructor Certification Program in July 2013 and is dedicated to sharing effective self-defence with people of all ages and abilities.
