Known for its practical applications as a self-defence art, BJJ gained popularity following the first Ultimate Fighting Championship when Royce Gracie beat all comers to be crowned the first UFC champion. Since then BJJ is practiced around the world as a self-defence, health and sporting pastime. It is a big part of the Mixed Martial Art jigsaw and a popular addition to the Savage MMA curriculum in both Gi and No Gi classes. We are proud to be associated to Mario Sukata and are his representative BJJ academy in the area. Gary Savage was Mario’s first UK black belt and since graduating has awarded several Black belts to members of the Blackpool Academy. We have more Black belts in BJJ training on our mats than any other Academy in the area, with several champions teaching classes @ Savage MMA.
