Surviving Lockdown 3.0?

We certainly didn’t expect to be locking down in January when we started to build Gracie Barra Roundhay in September last year, but here we are, let’s make the most of what we have!

We’re a positive bunch and therefore we don’t see lockdown as a blocker to delivering Jiu Jitsu for Everyone, it’s merely a small bump in an otherwise long and winding journey.  But, we understand thatnot everyone feels like that.  If you are struggling Contact us in confidence for support, we want to help!

As you will now know, this is your regular instalment of the things we’ve been up to in and around the academy, stuff that’s caught our eye this week and info that we feel benefits you, our community.  

Got a specific question?  Chances are we’ve answered it on our YouTube channel or Website FAQs.  If you can’t find the answer, hit us up on Email – we love to chat!

We’re Online!

We made a pledge to our members that our doors would never close during this pandemic.  We know how important staying active and connected with others is and we’re determined to keep our promise.

So, instead of offering the best Jiu Jitsu training in Leeds inside your academy we’re now delivering it right inside your home!  Both our Little Champions and adult members are doing amazingly well during our online classes and they’re staying healthy, positive and learning new skills every time they log on.

Not a member yet?  Wish you or your family could get involved?  We’ve just released an online membership just for you.  Best of all, it can be used by all the family and costs less than the price of a large pizza…a damn sight healthier too!

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu - A Cure for Mental Health?

One of the less obvious benefits of training Jiu Jitsu is how it positively affects our mental wellbeing.  Unlike hitting the gym or pounding the streets Jiu Jitsu offers a unique ability to reset our mindset and build strong and supportive relationships.

Our latest blog post explains the benefits of Jiu Jitsu on our mental health and wellbeing.  Give it a read….it might be the most important 5 minutes of your day!


Helping Everyone Through Lockdown

Bored of the same old audio book?  Kids struggling with home schooling?

In a pledge to help everyone in our community get through the next few weeks we’ve committed to release one brand new YouTube video every day during lockdown.  There really is something for everyone including self-defence tutorials for adults and children.

On top of that we continue to release our NorthLeedsJitz & NorthLeedsJitzKids Podcasts weekly.  Our Kids Podcast is only 15 minutes long and is designed to give children a break from their screens and covers topics including facing fears.

Stay safe, stay active, stay in touch!!!
