Stealth BJJ

Although only about 30 percent of the students compete and we realise it is not for everyone, we have had plenty of success on the competition circuit in both gi and no gi tournaments. Our BJJ coach Steve spent 8 years training at the Gracie Barra headquarters in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where he earned his black belt under Carlos Gracie Jr, the son of the founder of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

Steve was the first Mancunian BJJ black belt, recieving his belt in January 2007 after having a successful competition year at brown belt winning the Rio state championships, Copa Rolls Gracie and getting silver in the Brazilian championships.
