I’ve been training at Gracie Barra Havering for 6 years now and its become my home. The instruction is top shelf and its totally relaxed. Its an ego free and friendly environment where people of all backgrounds, shapes and sizes train under one roof.  All of the students here share a huge passion for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. This is 5 star club whether you’re starting out or already have experience.

Dave is an excellent coach who has the enthusiasm and technical know how to bring out the best in everyone. He leads by example and is always willing to give one on one time to all his students, whether it be mat side at competitions or helping you through a training plateau. I credit Dave for all my jiu jitsu achievements to date.

I have been training with Dave since the beginning of 2012 and it has been the best choice I have made in my life. Dave has brought my game on leaps and bounds since I have been training with him. Coming to his classes has not only made me a better grappler but a much calmer, more confident and healthier person. Dave treats everyone as individuals and understands your goals, he is always there if you need advice on and off the mat and on top of that hes a beast on the mat. He can teach all styles whether its pressure passing or a nice flowing game he covers it. It has literally changed me and my life and I would recommend this club to anyone.

I’ve been training with Dave for 6 months now and straight away I was made to feel extremely welcome and part of the GB Havering team. Daves style of teaching always makes for a fun and relaxed class, and always meticulous in the teaching of techniques. Covering all ranges of grappling, from wrestling take-downs, No Gi submissions to traditional BJJ attacks. My knowledge and enthusiasm for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu has only ever increased under Dave’s tuition, and i’m looking forward to more of the same.
