Thread: Best Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Coach in UK

  1. #1

    Default Best Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Coach in UK

    I was just wondering who does everybody rate as the best Brazilian Jiu Jitsu coaches in the UK both in terms of pure Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and BJJ for MMA?

    Purely in terms of accomplishments/comps won would have to be a toss up between Roger Gracie and Braulio I'd say.
    Pedro Bessa BJJ Bristol. Sweatbox MMA.

    As a pure BJJ coach I guess you have to look at students results, not personal results...

    At the last Mundials, Luke Costello and Chris Bowe took gold & silver at brown belt. Both are students of Braulio. Luke is the most successful adult competitor out of the UK (I think). Chris Bowe has had plenty of other medals at brown belt in high level comps. Same goes for Stephen Martin (another Braulio student).

    I'm not that into keeping up on comp results mind, so there will be plenty of successes I don't know about. But I think it would be hard to beat those of Braulio's students.

    Ive heard that karl tanswell is one of the best MMA coaches there is and im sure he can use his blackbelt level BJJ and teach it appropriately for MMA. in scotland there is Paul mcveigh an mma world champion and a blackbelt in BJJ with a great team and Garry Christie whom im hoping to get down to my team for a seminar soon he is supposedly a phenomenal BJJ coach purely for BJJ but also for MMA.
    I have attended a seminar with paul and learned a lot it was great. i think these guys are good not so mu7ch because they are so good themselves nut because they know how to put it across they are good teachers and this is the most important aspect of a coach. ive trained with blackbelts who i do not regard as great teachers absolutely phenomenal competitors but not as adept at getting you to understand how to do things.
