I'm up for doing some BJJ as it's something I've never done before however; I'll also bring with me a couple of sets of Kendo armour and kit so that if anyone wanted to spar with me and try kendo, it's available to them."To sin by silence when one should protest makes cowards out of men".

Never mate unfortunately, being shipped out to the sandbox fucked up my plans. I would like to pay a visit but the problem is, I don't have the time to keep going back as it's a 80 mile round trip and I'm working the same distance (opposite direction) away from where I live."To sin by silence when one should protest makes cowards out of men".

The other one is Dan Wait, but there have been doubts in regards to his credentials over at EFN and Cagewarriors.
There was also mention of somewhere in Grimsby too, in this thread. Not sure if the information is still current, but it says you can contact somebody called Neil (unless 'Niel' isn't a typo) on 07519561938.

Thanks for that information, I wasn't aware of those places, but then again, I wasn't looking :-) I'll make a point of checking them out in the new year.

Yeah sure, I may well give that guy in GY a ring this evening and put the initial feelers out. You'll have to excuse my ignorance here but I'm assuming that BJJ is mostly a ground game based system, is that correct or, does it include hand/foot striking as well ?"To sin by silence when one should protest makes cowards out of men".

Fortunately rare, unless you're at the Gracie Academy. Having said that, the Gracie Combatives place in Bradford did apparently enter one of their guys into MMA a while ago, so that's a bit more promising.
Either way, the strength of BJJ is very, very much the grappling, because it has been pressure-tested through sparring. I'm sure you don't need this, but just in case, I've got a basic "what is BJJ" part to my FAQ, here.

Cool, because whilst I'm not adverse to being punched/kicked in the teeth once in a while, I can't justify to my chain of command why I'm turning up for work with black-eyes and cut lips on a regular basis lol !"To sin by silence when one should protest makes cowards out of men".
