that sounds like itll be japanese jui jitsu and from my experience these are the guys are most disrespectful to mma and other martial arts in general

I know Mark and trained with him a few years ago. There is an SSJJ in Treorchy at the abergorki hall (run by Chris Griffiths, Paul Morris and Tyrone Kelly). SSJJ is Mark Burridges organisation

They do self defence Jujitsu and also MMA, no-gi submission grappling, quite a few of the boys there have boxed, competed in Judo and MMA. Quite a few very good Welsh MMA fighters started at SSJJ..Denzil, Kevin Reed, Alex Evans to name a few.

Kevin Reed I belive also runs a submissions grappling / MMA class at the Bomb club, not sure what days though.
