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:
