Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Wolverhampton UK
Eclipse Gracie Jiu Jitsu in Wolverhampton City Centre is the largest Gracie Academy Certified Training Centre (CTC) in the UK & Europe and follows the excellent Gracie University syllabus established by Rener and Ryron Gracie based upon the teachings of their GrandFather (Grand Master Helio Gracie). We offer a beginners BJJ / GJJ class - Gracie Combatives - which teaches the 36 most crucial techniques for survival in a street fight and acts as a great introduction to the art of Gracie Jiu Jitsu. After completion of Gracie Combatives and the award of your blue belt the next step is our Master Cycle course, a highly detailed and effective class that will guide you to the higher belt levels. For kids, we offer the very popular Gracie Bullyproof program for both our Junior Grapplers (ages 8-14 yrs) and our Little Champs (ages 5-7 yrs).
Adult Gracie Jiu Jitsu Classes
Gracie Combatives is our beginner program for adults. In this program, you will learn the 36 core techniques of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu in a fun, safe, and cooperative environment. Each one-hour lesson addresses one standing and one ground self-defense technique. You can start the program at any time and participate in any class without previous experience and, since safety is our number one concern, there is no competitive sparring in this program. Upon successful completion of the Gracie Combatives program we will promote you to blue belt, and you will qualify for advancement to the Master Cycle program.
Gracie Master Cycle
Beyond blue belt, Gracie Jiu-Jitsu consists of hundreds of advanced techniques organized into a clearly defined, systematic curriculum called the Master Cycle. The Master Cycle’s unique structure simplifies the journey to black belt by organizing all of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu into seven positional chapters (Mount, Side Mount, Guard, Half Guard, Back Mount, Leg Locks, Standing), each of which is studied for several months before moving on to the next chapter. If you’ve achieved the rank of blue belt or higher, and you would like to continue on the path to black belt in a safe, structured, and friendly learning environment, the Master Cycle is for you!
Gracie Bullyproof (Kids Classes)
The Little Champs program is for kids 4-7 years old. Using our time-tested “Gracie Games,” we teach the Little Champs basic self-defense techniques while instilling the foundational principles of leverage and control. The secret to the success of this program is that we make the lessons so fun that the kids beg for more! Once a child masters all ten Gracie Games, they advance to the Jr. Grapplers program.
In the Jr. Grapplers program, we focus on 33 non-violent self-defense techniques that teach children to “neutralize and negotiate” with the bullies. Verbal assertiveness strategies are a major portion of this curriculum. A child needs absolutely no experience to start, and we guarantee a noticeable increase in your child’s confidence within a few weeks!
