STRUCTURED BEGINNER PROGRAMS
EVERYONE GETS FROM JIU JITSU, WHAT THEY NEED FROM JIU JITSU
Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is for everyone, regardless of your age, gender or physical ability, but only if taught correctly. Many BJJ schools have taken a “one-size-fits-all” approach to teaching the art. The problem with this is that there are people with different needs being taught Jiu Jitsu the same way.
The Gracie University has gone to great lengths to create very structured, specific programs with relevant curriculums for each every member of the family and we are proud to offer them here in Tameside:
Gracie Combatives is our beginner BJJ course for adults looking to get active, build their confidence and meeting new people. In this program you will learn the 36 most effective techniques of Jiu Jitsu in a very safe, structured and co-operative environment while relieving stress and having fun! No previous experienced required.
The Master Cycle is our intermediate to advanced program for adults the complete our beginner program. In this program, you will learn the remaining hundreds of techniques in Jiu Jitsu in highly structured/focused fashion. Live training/sparring plays a large role in the program while safety remains the number one concern.
Women Empowered is our class for women that want to look, move and feel better whilst learning essential self-defence. You'll develop tools to defend against the 15 most common threats against women in a safe, structured and co-operative environment while meeting others and focusing on you!

Jiu Jitsu exists as a fun, recreational hobby and a proven system of self-defence. While you'll explore both aspects of the art our primary focus will always be effective, real-world self-defence!
