Welcome to Gracie Barra Preston 

   Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is one of the fastest growing sports in the UK and is the most effective martial art in the world. Unlike any other martial art, in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu it can take up to ten years to earn a black belt and so this is considered to be an incredible achievement. The club, Preston Gracie Barra was founded by Black Belt head instructor Paul Hartley and boasts 2 further black belt assistant instructors, Matt 'Stallone' Callaghan and Ian 'Peter Pan'Fell. 

There are very few Black Belts teaching in the UK at present but Preston has 3, making it the premier Brazilian Jiu Jitsu school in the North West and one of the top places to train in the whole of the UK. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is not only about training and keeping fit, but is a great sport to socialise and make friends, become disciplined and set goals for yourself if you wish to compete. The club is totally aligned with the Gracie Barra curriculum and has Gracie ICP trained instructors and coaches to help you achieve all grades and goals. The club also has a Future Champions class for children and also Anti Bullying classes and also a wide variety of early morning, day time and evening classes to suit everyone.
