Our BJJ coach Steve spent 8 years training at the Gracie Barra headquarters in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where he earned his black belt under Carlos Gracie Jr, the son of the founder of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
Steve was the first Mancunian BJJ black belt, receiving his belt in January 2007 after having a successful competition year at brown belt winning the Rio state championships, Copa Rolls Gracie and getting silver in the Brazilian championships.
Stealth BJJ students are in a great position of being able to learn techniques directly from the source, as Steve is one of the first European black belts to receive all his grades in Brazil under the direct tuition of Carlos Gracie Jr. Steve’s time is now dedicated to Stealth BJJ and his students. Although he still competes now and again, his main focus is as a BJJ coach and getting his students to excel and be the best that they can.
