Beginners Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Classes for Adults and Children in Tameside

Interested in getting started with Jiu Jitsu?

Feel embarrassed about being a beginner at something?

Concerned that you're too old or out of shape?

Here at Gracie Jiu Jitsu Tameside, we are honoured to be a certified training centre for the Gracie University in California. Started in 2013 by Head Instructor Alex Morton in a small village hall with just a handful of students, the training centre has now grown to over 125 members and it's own full time facility!

Certified Training Centre's (CTCs) are martial arts schools that are authorised to teach the trademark self-defence programs developed by Gracie University Headquarters.


Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is one of the fastest growing martial arts on the planet, but the success of your jiu-jitsu journey will rely heavily on the culture of the school you attend and instructional methods utilised by your teachers.

Even though all CTCs are independently owned and operated, Ryron and Rener Gracie are very proud to inform you that all of certified instructors have undergone extensive training directly under the Gracie Family to ensure that you are provided with the best possible learning environment on your path to jiu-jitsu mastery.
