So new stuff and summary of the new academy:
Andy is a great instructer with an enthusiastic attitude, he goes through all the moves multiple times and really makes sure we understand them. He offers practical advise and shows how to compensate for different opponents and situations. Andy does not just instruct how to do his game but focuses on encompassing all fundamentals. Andy is flexable and any new comers are given no pressure to buy a gi and can train no gi.
Since the early days we have since added Purple and blue belt assistant instructors, so that everyone is given personal feedback and attention as well as insuring a class is never cancelled if Andy cannot be there.
Another plus is Andy's affiliation with Roger Gracie and other world champions inside and outside of the UK. The UFC also currently employ Andy as a judge for events in Europe and as far as Abu Dhabi.
Andy posts all upcoming and recent competitions on his website.
