Gracie Barra Scotland is honoured to host a seminar with the world-famous BJJ practitioner, Professor Lucio Rodrigues.


Originally from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and known traditionally as ‘Lagarto’, (which means lizard in Portuguese), Professor Lagarto is a former world champion, and direct student of the legendary Carlos Gracie, Jr. He is a 4th degree Black Belt and Head Instructor at Gracie Barra Fulham.



Each seminar, Professor Lagarto focuses on a particular area of BJJ and teaches high-level concepts and movements, in his warm and humble way and it is not possible to leave without developing your Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, regardless of the level that you begin at.

The seminar will consist of practising various fundamental skills development, evolutions of basic guards and passes, partner work and much, much more.

This is an exciting opportunity to train with a giant of the sport and learn directly from a former student of one of the BJJ masters.

Jiu Jitsu Testimonial

"I have been training with gracie barra scotland for about three years. I started with fitness training but became interested in the jiu jitsu through the fitness training. Since starting training here I have lost three stones in weight, become fitter than I ever thought I could be at the age of 46 and won a silver and bronze medal in jiu jitsu competition. I couldn't recommend this training enough."

Personal Trainer Testimonial

"Ricky provides a balanced view on how you can achieve your goals and what you need to do in order to reach them and beyond, but more importantly its a holistic view. He will discuss diet, training plans and answer any questions that you have, without pushing an agenda. The only thing that you have to bring is your willpower, a desire to push yourself and your limits, along with an open mind as to what exercise can achieve." Jenny

Fitness Testimonial

"I have always done training, been to a lot of gyms that had kettlebells but was never shown the routines and the proper techniques. I am now loving my kettlebell training and i am strong enough to flip tractor tyres, I am fitter than most ladies half my age, most people my age are afraid of the hard work . i love it" Joyce
