Jiu-Jitsu for Everyone

GB Knightsbridge Grand Opening

Hello friends! It is with great joy that we opened our doors today, for a limited group of about 80 lucky souls. The attendance was very special as people from all around the United Kingdom came over, eager to know our brand new academy and reunite with Lucio “Lagarto” Rodrigues.

From experienced black belts, purple belts and blue belts, fresh starter white belts and several children, all excited with the new academy space.

After settling everyone in, Lucio “Lagarto” Rodrigues kicked off the seminar, starting by explaining his new project, his goals for the future and his full-time dedication to the new Gracie Barra Knightsbridge, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy. Lucio insisted, more than once, that this is his lifetime project and he will personally be teaching every day. Lucio also counted with the help of several black belt instructors such as Paul Hartley, Matt Stalone, Lucio Sergio dos Santos, Claudio Silva, Thiago Borges, Esther Tang and Ajaz Saddique.

Check the photos below and tell us what you think! Ossss.

    It was such an honour coming down to witness the grand opening. Came down from Gracie Barra Glasgow, had such a fantastic time at the academy. Lagarto himself is such a great person and great instructor.
    I will hopefully be coming back to the academy very soon.
