    Training under larry,eric and yori gave me a great background in no gi wrestling,i later trained bjj under ben poppleton and neil owen two good freinds of mine who pioneered bjj in the north-i still teach bjj and catch and shooto to my mma and grappling fighters-Two former students who used it to great success were jason ball who spent 5 years with me and danny mitchell who trained with me as a teen in catch/shooto and both have a good catch bjj game.

    real catch wrestling had pins

  6. #26


    Ive,found training the pin makes the fighters develop an aggressive top game --We spar with the pin and without -it makes a good change to your sparring.

    ugg uk are likely to be the most comfortable footwear you will ever own and what’s even better is that they look spectacular with almost every outfit.

    November of last year also saw Ian Bromley certified under Snake Pit Wigan (Roy Wood) . he has trained with Roy for 18 years so it was a well earned coaching qualification ... Snake Pit Wigan details can be found on
