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.

Practice with Equal Student: The first tendency is for the practice to develop into a contest. You should try to prevent this in your free training practice. You must not adopt a defensive posture, which might be justified in a competition; instead attack with your best techniques, as strongly and as quickly as possible. The main point here is to “play” constructive Jiu Jitsu, and not risk injury by refusing to tap at all costs. Really, you have nothing to lose and should try to move lighter and faster than you would in contest, in order to increase the speed and strength of your attacks.

Beginner Classes

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art, combat sport, and a self defence system that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting. Practice with students of a similar level while strengthening and opening your body and mind.

Beginner Classes

Intermediate Classe

Once you have established the basic techniques with the beginners program, you will then understand that it teaches you, that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger assailant by using leverage and proper technique. Create awareness and intelligence within your body and movements while improving your technique.

Intermediate Classes


For the competitor, coach and higher learner. For those looking for a more physical practice, this is the point that you give back. Its a never ending journey of self exploration. Deepen your practice and knowledge,
