10Yrs+ Experience in BJJ.

I have been training BJJ for 10 years+ and Teaching it for over 6 years.

I've always been fascinated by martial arts from an early age and have trained multiple arts on and off throughout my life. I first started training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu properly in 2008 after being exposed to the art and having some experience since 2005 and longing for a chance to study it on a regular basis.

I was fascinated with the art at first sight and have been striving to develop my understanding and ability to the highest levels possible ever since, searching out the most effective and authentic knowledge available and travelling to train with and learn from many world champions and respected legends of the art.

I study and teach the art as a whole, emphasizing both self defence and competition aspects.

As well as being about self improvement my motivation for training martial arts is always self defence orientated at its core. As such I always strive to find the most combat effective techniques and concepts and view competition as a way of testing this.

I absolutely love teaching and constantly strive to be the best at it I can possibly be!

I utilise a friendly patient method of positive reinforcement relating concepts as well as techniques and explain not just what to do but why to do them and why they work in terms of biology, physics and science. I believe in the development of strong fundamental skills to lay a solid foundation from which to build upon.

I believe in always prioritising the development of technique over anything else such as strength or conditioning. Technique is what Jiu-Jitsu is based upon and is what allows a smaller person to beat a bigger person.

Relying on muscle rather than technique is a short lived strategy, strength and conditioning should only be used to augment technical jiu-jitsu not supersede it, thus my teachings and classes reflect this in there content.

As well as BJJ I train regularly in Boxing, Kickboxing and Judo as well as Calisthenics, Yoga and Weight Training. and have trained in Muay Thai, MMA, Wrestling, Kung Fu, Karate and Japanese Jiu-Jitsu.
