Welcome to Gracie Barra Sheffield. The Forge Martial Arts Centre was opened May 5th 2008 but Gracie Barra Sheffield existed for many years prior to this. The team and centre has grown particularly over the last 4 years and we pride ourselves in being a welcoming and friendly club.
As head instructor over the last 10 years or so i have worked closely with some of the best Brazilian Jiu-jitsu practitioners in the world today, such as Lucio Rodrigues, Braulio and Victor Estima and Lucio Sergio. In February 2011 I became Sheffield’s first and only Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt.
The Forge Martial Arts Centre promotes a very positive environment to enable students to develop good work ethic, build good character and more importantly have fun. We aim to help you succeed on the mat but also in your overall life.
Our facilities include:
- 185 square metres of 40mm Dollamur mats, suitable for all martial arts
- A wide range of hand held striking equipment
- Core training area.
- Excellent changing rooms for male and female students.
- Pro Shop
The Forge is the only place in Sheffield to have a black belt instructor taking classes in both gi and no-gi training. We also have regular input and seminars from world class Gracie Barra and other Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu champions.
We also run Fight Klub fitness sessions which you can find more detail at www.fightklubsheffield.co.uk
I hope to see you on the mat soon.
