Our History, Our Vision


Our Jiu Jitsu team was established in 2010 by Prof. David Tobin. Our lineage has routes to the earliest stages of the Birth of UK Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. We have since built many European, British and English champions in BJJ and NOGI submission grappling. Our vision: To continue to provide a safe, clean and friendly environment for our students to train in, whilst keeping and maintaining our top of the range training facility standards. To empower our students with a sense of combative confidence, helping them to make the right decisions and defend themselves in this dangerous world that we live in today.
