About Jude Samuel

In 1981, Mauricio Gomes was awarded his Black Belt by Rolls Gracie, an event that was to mark a new beginning in his study and mastery of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. In 2003, his son Roger Gracie was promoted to Black Belt by Renzo Gracie at the behest of his uncle Carlos Gracie Jr and his almost unchecked domination of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Submission wrestling followed.

In 2005, a new era is dawned in the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu scene in the United Kingdom with Mauricio Gomes awarding Jude Samuel his Black Belt after almost 7 years under his tutelage.

In 2009 after teaching at Gracie Barra London and the Roger Gracie Academy for almost 6 plus years, Jude decided to take a break from teaching and concentrate on the development of his academy. A constant competitor he made his MMA debut in November 2009 to add to the many other BJJ titles he already holds.

Prof Jude Samuel is now one of a few European Born 4th Degree Black Belts.

Inglorious Grapplers focus on embodying the idea of training with everyone in order to reach our full potential. We are a group of practitioners that are free from traditional politics. We strive ourselves on our versatile adaptation to all grappling arts, taking what is useful and adjusting it to fit each of our individual styles. We encourage our students to discover the best of themselves and becoming a better human being through the tough daily grind of martial arts training.

Inglorious Grapplers will always try to live by the following rules:

Regardless of affiliation, everyone is welcomed to train with us.

We are always free to cross-train with anyone else.

We will always be respectful and uphold our best behaviour on and off the mats.

We are free to explore all aspects of techniques and ideas, but never to teach something that hasn’t been repeatedly tested and proven to work.

We will strive to challenge ourselves through training and competition.

We will always enjoy training and have fun.

Creativity over all.
