Our Jiu-Jitsu/Grappling is a strong mix of wrestling and BJJ. We believe the two arts complement each other perfectly and each fills in the gaps of the other meaning a stronger game in all areas.

Although our students do compete in BJJ, Our influences over the years have been a mix of wrestling coaches and BJJ coaches.

Our Wrestling influences/coaches. From early 2000 training with coaches under Eric Paulson of CSW, an MMA pioneer pre UFC. To Nathan Leverton of Leicester Shootfighters, coach to many UFC fighters and a huge influence on our style. To more recently, Lyubo Kumbarov, multiple times Bulgarian National Wrestling Champion and long time wrestling coach at Rojer Gracie HQ London.

Our BJJ influences/coaches. Since 2013 has been John Will, 6th dan blackbelt and one of the first twelve non Brazilians to receive a black belt, known famously in the BJJ world as one of the dirty dozen, John visits our academy each year and has become a good friend. To more recently with Tom Barlow 2nd degree black belt and three-time No-Gi world champion, European champion and a regular commentator on the prestigious Polaris grappling events.
