Get Off The Internet And On To The Mat!
You may have heard about Jiu Jitsu via a friend, a podcast or on social media and it could be the best thing you ever do for your confidence, fitness and health but it's impossible to know unless you actually step on the mat and experience it.
This is not a chance for us to hard sell you onto a membership, this is for you to experience what Jiu Jitsu has to offer!
WE UNDERSTAND THAT THIS CAN BE A BIG STEP OUT OF THE COMFORT ZONE FOR MANY PEOPLE
✓ You aren't going to be chucked in at the deep end with advanced belts, you'll be training with other beginners at the same stage
✓ There will be no sparring or live training, everything will be practised co-operatively so the risk of injury is extremely low
✓ You aren't going to learning anything that requires you to be flexible or in shape, everything relies on natural body movements
✓ There is no expectation that you will get everything perfect. Nobody does!
Our ultimate goal is for you to leave the class with an enjoyable experience, having fun and recognising how Jiu Jitsu, combined with our culture and systems, can enrich your life and become something you want to continue pursuing due to the numerous benefits it offers.

TOP 10 QUESTIONS FOR YOUR FIRST BJJ CLASS
Kids Karate Classes vs Kids BJJ Classes - What's the difference?Many parents ask, what’s the difference between Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Karate classes? While we believe all martial-arts have value, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu has not only been proven to be the most effective martial art for a smaller person to defend themselves in a real fight for nearly a century, it also can be the most gentile. We don’t want our kids or students turning into bullies themselves, and we also believe self-defence should be scalable, depending on the situation. Whereas kids Karate lessons or Taekwondo classes rely solely on landing punches and kicks, jiu-jitsu for kids focuses on neutralising a threat with verbal boundaries, distance management, body control, and eventual negotiation.
Are parents allowed to watch?We encourage parents to watch their children in their kids martial arts lessons. It's actually mandatory that you be available if your child is in our 6-9 yrs group. We love parents getting involved! Even better… you can join in our Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes for adults, and have yet another thing in common with your little one. We love seeing the bond of families who train together!
Where are you based and when are the classes?Our address is: Unit 1 Vale Mill, Huddersfield Road, Mossley, OL5 9LL. We have a small car park of Huddersfield Rd, however if it's full you can park carefully on the street outside. Our class times for 6-9 yrs are: Monday at 5pm Tuesday at 5:45pm Wednesday at 5pm Thursday at 5:45pm Our class times for 10-13 yrs are: Monday at 5:45pm Wednesday at 5:45pm
How much do memberships cost?We have many different combinations of memberships starting from as little as £38 per month on a direct debit. A membership pack detailing the different packages we offer will be given to you after your first lesson for you to take home and read through.
Will my child become a bully?Through our work, we have seen that confident kids make kinder kids. We teach children how to not only stand up to bullies for themselves, but how to stand up for others. Our Rules of Engagement teach children to avoid the fight if at all possible by first using their words, and then telling an adult. When they do need to resort to physical self-defence, we do not teach children punches or kicks in the Gracie Bullyproof program, but rather, empowered by Brazilian Jiu-JItsu, to neutralise, defend, control, and negotiate if possible.
My child isn't a sporty person, will they feel left out?We believe jiu-jitsu is for children of all skill levels and abilities. Your child belongs here. Through our kids martial arts classes, we have seen our students improve co-ordination, balance, motor skills, focus and discipline. Plus, they make lots of great friends! Our instructors are highly skilled in teaching martial arts to kids. It’s their PASSION!
What does my child need to wear?For your child’s first jiu-jitsu class, we recommend wearing shorts or joggers, and a t-shirt! If they continue training with us they will need a Jiu Jitsu Gi. These can be purchased at the facility or elsewhere so long as it is white.
