Head Coach RGA Bolton - Barry Crowther

Barry Crowther trained for eight years in California USA, under the tutelage of Gracie Barra San Clemente. After returning to the Uk he concentrated on building two academies to invite all comers into the BJJ Lifestyle and show people in the UK the impact Jiu Jitsu can make on their lives.

The Roger Gracie Academy of Bolton was founded in March 2017. Our school is the result of the efforts of Professor Barry Crowther, a  Black Belt under Prof. Flavio Almeida and Prof. Mike Dorrian a Black Belt under Prof. Victor Estima.

We offer world-class level Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu instruction for individuals, families, and Police Officers of the Greater Manchester area and is a reference for fitness, character development, self-defense, martial art, and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu training for the communities of Bolton, Walkden, Swinton, Atherton, Leigh and Wigan.

The Roger Gracie Bolton classes are aligned with the RGA Program Structure developed by 10 times World Champion Roger Gracie to meet specific learning needs from people with different ages, gender and levels. Our clean, friendly, and progress oriented environment allows the students to have a challenging, inspirational, and warm learning and training experience that always make them feel like coming back.
