    Theres Dogs of Anarchy/Dual Samurai. Two teams who have recently combined forces. We train in wallyford, just outside Edinburgh. All the instructors are very experienced martial artists and the gym has a decent set up.

    The two best grappling clubs in Edinburgh hands down.

    Difficult choices. I think it's really hard to choose between these clubs. Rick Youngs and Willie Scotts (Alba Dornadair) have been around for a long time and produce awesome fighters and have pro fighters training out of them. Willies focus is much more on producing MMA fighters while Rick focuses on the more on grappling.

    Dogs of Anarchy with Stuart are up and coming and doing excellently and are definitely worth a look. They can only have got better with the merger.

    Headhunters I don't know much about or Edingburgh bjj but one of the coaches I work with goes through to them now and again.

    My advice is to try them all and find where feels best.

    There is also Crazy Cow bjj. The guys in that club are really good and a real laugh and well worth a visit.

    Have fun trying them and good luck.

    For bjj rick youngs would be the place to go, one of only 3 bjj black belts coaching in Scotland. Some great guys there for mms as well.

    Alba dornadair is one of the oldest mma clubs in Scotland and has been putiing out fighters for years.

    Where about in Edinburgh is Edinburgh bjj based?? I know of Rick Young's in Leith and and know of Crazy Cow at Tollcross but haven't heard of Edinburgh bjj.
