im going to def check out the westcliff place, sounds good!
The other one is called Shen-Ti academy, its literally round the corner from where i work, i emailed them the other week asking if they are still training there as it seemed to be abit dead around the area and no-one has got back to me. ive walked past it on my lunch but doors seem to be closed all the time. Its a shame though as that place would be ideal for me as its right on my doorstep!
Might drop in tomorrow and have a look again.
thanks buddy for the info.
yes there are lots of people to train with if you are serious about fighting , they do lots of classes at westcliff
boxing and kickboxing
try and get in contact with shen ti lee is a very good jiu jitsu fighter , he might be doing some in rayleigh though

hey just thought id let people know that i went to the shen ti place during the week and again today and it just looks like its been closed down, its got a 'to let' sign on it and doesnt look like its being used inside...
Shame would have been the ideal place for me...
