Royal Grappling Academy

Royal Grappling Academy is a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy based in Blanchardstown, Dublin 15, Ireland. We originally opened our doors in 2011 in Co. Meath (The Royal County, hence the name). We are the First Academy outside of North America to be part of the Marcelo Garcia Jiu-Jitsu Association.

Marcelo Garcia Jiu-Jitsu Association – Marcelo Garcia is widely considered to be one of the best pound for pound grapplers in the world, a 5 time world champion at Black Belt and 4 time ADCC Submission grappling World Champion. He operates from his Marcelo Garcia Academy in NYC. We use a curriculum laid out by Marcelo in conjunction with his website MG in Action, in order to bring our students the most effective techniques in both Gi and NoGi Jiu-Jitsu.

We have an open door policy and would suit everybody whether their goals are fitness, competition or self defence. So if you’re new to martial arts, a couch potato with a willingness to get fit, an athlete who wants to try something different or already living the Jiu-Jitsu lifestyle and training in the Gentle Art for many years… Royal Grappling Academy could be the place to achieve your goals.
