    I don't know the guy but if it's not BJJ it might not be what you want. Budgie, as mentioned above, is not BJJ but I believe his classes do include 100% sparring etc... not all JJ places do though.

    Wrestling Sophia Gardens Tues and Thursday 6 to 7:30 olympic freestyle/greco-roman team ran long with the judo academy and Pedro Bessa.

    I am fairly sure Chris Rees (Rob and my instructor) has people coming to the Cardiff classes from Merthyr so you might be able to out with lifts etc.

    i know jason hes a very nice guy taught by nigel williams o yama do yawara ryu

    http://merthyrjujitsu.co.uk/

    im from merthyr and ive been to most of the merthyr gyms, it all depends what your looking for:

    self defence the jason will teach you well but if you want to do MMA there is a gym in merthyr iron worriors which i know is ok.

    i started training with heath over at falcons MA in blaena about 15miles from merthyr but its far better than anything you get in merthyr. falcons is an awsome gym with a real close bunch of lads (no big heads) and the training i second to none.
