About Us

We are a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Self Defense Academy Representing and Training under the guidance of Master Mauricio Gomes.

Mauricio began training with the legendary Rolls Gracie as a teenager and under Rolls' guidance, he became a highly successful competitor and won the absolute division of the Rio de Janeiro State Championships in 1981. Shortly after this victory Rolls would award Mauricio his black belt. Mauricio continued training with Rolls until his tragic death in 1982.

In the late 1990s, Mauricio came to the UK and established his BJJ Academy here. Through his teaching, many new gyms would open and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is now the fastest growing martial art in the UK. Mauricio is affectionately known as the ‘Godfather of British Jiu-Jitsu’ because of his efforts to grow the sport in the country.

Come train with us and become part of this wonderful journey.
