    Swansea is only 30 miles from Merthyr. I thoroughly recommend the drive

    See these for details of the Chris Rees Academy (Gracie Barra Swansea and Gracie Barra Cardiff);

    http://www.graciebarraswansea.co.uk/

    Chris Rees (head instructor) and myself train under Braulio Estima, 3 times Mundials champion and current ADCC absolute and weight champion.

    I live in the Rhondda mate and am a blue belt under BJJ black belt Pedro Bessa

    Pedro has a place at the WIS sophia gardens Cardiff and takes classes Mondays and Thursdays 7.30pm till 9.30pm and Thursday day 12.30pm to 2.00pm. Also BJJ black belt Leopoldo Pires takes classes there (he is at the moment as Pedro is fighting at the no gi worlds) - so the only 2 black belts in wales

    Pedro Bessa Purple belt Greg Creel has just opened a new gym in Abertillery that does Jiujitsu, No gi, MMA and Muay Thai.

    if you need further info let me know

    hope to see you on the mat
