BECOME THE BEST VERSION OF YOU

Gracie Jiu Jitsu (also known as Brazilian Jiu Jitsu or BJJ) is the fastest growing martial art in the world and recommend by many as the number one martial art to learn! As a grappling based martial art, Jiu Jitsu relies on technique, timing and leverage over strength and power, meaning anyone can do it regardless of your age, gender or physical ability. Jiu Jitsu is for everyone!

SELF-DEFENCE
Knowing that you can handle yourself provides a level of confidence and self-esteem unlike anything else.


This will change the way that you feel and act in every day scenarios... a true sense of security and certainty.

SAFETY
Safety is the number one concern in this programme. Far too many people quit Jiu Jitsu in the early stages due to injury. 

You will start by learning the techniques in a co-operative manner with a like-minded training partner before any live training.

Frequently Asked Questions

What if I don’t have any martial arts experience?


No problem! Our beginner programs are specifically designed, from a structure and a safety perspective, for first-time jiu-jitsu practitioners, which is why we have the most successful jiu-jitsu schools in the world.




Who teaches the classes?


All of our classes are taught by certified Gracie University instructors Alex and James. These guys have not only dedicated their lives to becoming better Jiu Jitsu practitioners, but they spend an equal amount of time trying to become the best Jiu Jitsu instructors; travelling to GU HQ in California to complete the Gracie Instructor Certification Programme. We believe that anyone can learn Jiu Jitsu and that there is no such thing as good or bad students, just good or bad teachers.




Will I get injured or embarrassed?


If you get injured or embarrassed you won't come back. Everything about our beginner programs was specifically designed to make the classes as safe and encouraging for new students as possible.




Do I need to be in shape?


No, we love you exactly how you are. You don't get in shape to learn jiu-jitsu, you do jiu-jitsu to get in shape!




Are the classes suitable for women as well?


Yes! Jiu Jitsu is perfect for women and we are working hard to make sure more women feel comfortable starting this amazing martial art. Whilst we are working hard to grow the community of women in Jiu Jitsu, we are still someway off where we want to be! Rest assured every member (man or woman) is dedicated to helping each other grow and we’ve had plenty of women start on their own and love it, however, if you want a guaranteed female training partner it may be a good idea to speak to a friend and come together.
