Welcome to the home of the Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Hebden Bridge;

We are pleased to announce that our Chief Instructor of the Calder Valley Martial Arts and Leadership Academy is now a qualified Gracie Jiu-Jitsu instructor and that we have expanded our services at the Martial Arts and Leadership academy to include Gracie Jiu-Jitsu tuition.


The Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Hebden Bridge Certified Training Centre is certified and licensed under the global Gracie University based in Torrance, California. This means that our instructors are officially certified by the Gracie family and have a duty to uphold the curriculum and teachings of all the Gracie Jiu-Jitsu programmes to our students. All our instructors also continue to train and progress on their own Gracie Jiu-Jitsu journey. This ensures our teaching standards and knowledge remain high. 


Our instructors are fully committed to delivering instruction in line with the teachings, values and beliefs of the late Grand Master Helio Gracie, who founded this awesome martial art. It is a tried and tested self- defence system, which is accessible to everyone. Moreover, Grand Master Helio Gracie designed this instrumental martial art to provide a smaller, weaker person a realistic chance to defend themselves against a stronger, more athletic opponent. 


Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is about technique, timing and tactical thought. Its effectiveness stems from the use of technical leverage and distance management. Gracie Jiu-Jitsu has the advantage of using four appendages when on the ground to trap, grab, control, submit and defend an opponent no matter their size and strength. 


As well as offering official Gracie Jiu-Jitsu instruction on the mat, Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Hebden Bridge is also able to provide access to the online curriculum, which is on the Gracie University Website. This benefits students even further as they can learn techniques both at home and in a class environment. 


All belt qualifications are achieved direct from the Gracie University, Torrance, California. Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Hebden Bridge aims to provide an inclusive and welcoming environment for everybody, whatever your motivation for training Gracie Jiu-Jitsu; to support and assist you along your Gracie Jiu-Jitsu journey; to help you reach your full potential and to provide you with invaluable life skills both on and off the mat. 


Life skills are enhanced by the mindset shift that occurs when you learn to defend yourself competently. On the mat, you are taught the techniques to be able escape a threat in a very easy manner. This encourages a different approach to solving everyday problems in a more confident, calm, assertive, and technical and leverage based manner.
