BJJ black belts Lucio 'Lagarto' Rodrigues and Paul Hartley (Gracie Barra Preston) are now running a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu class every Tuesday, 20:00-21:30 at the Warrior Factory in Hipperholme, Halifax, West Yorkshire (Just 5 minutes from junction 26 off the M62).

Having run a few test classes we can announce that this is now a permanent fixture. The class size it currently around 10-12 though we would be happy to see a few more people attend. With two black belts teaching the class and purples, blues and a few whites attending, we hope the class has someone for everyone that's in traveling distance.

The Warrior Factory web site ( will be updated with more information this week but feel free to PM me if you need further details.
