    Grand Union Brighton 

    Welcome to GU Brighton – where martial arts and the beauty of the sea come together. Led by Cesar Lima, a 3rd-degree black belt under Roger Gracie.

    Nestled in the coastal village of Rottingdean, Brighton, the Grand Union Brighton is just steps away from the sparkling sea, offering one of the most breathtaking coastal views in the UK. Beyond being a training space, our academy provides an immersive experience, with the waves as a stunning backdrop.

    Immerse yourself in the fusion of physical training and the serenity of the sea at our Rottingdean academy. The dance between the sky and water on the horizon inspires dedication and tranquility.

    At Grand Union Brighton, we're more than a training center – we're a welcoming community and a family. With an inviting atmosphere, we create a sense of belonging that extends beyond the mats. Amidst the rolling waves and salty breeze, our space is where you can train, connect, grow, and share unforgettable moments.
