    BJJ in Oxford, UK

    Going to Oxford Brookes (a different uni to Oxford) come september with any luck, unfortunately im having little luck finding a capable BJJ club in the area, which is surprising considering Oxford's a big place, and i'm not relishing the idea of dropping the sport when i hit uni.

    If anyone who's from around the area or simply knows any legit clubs could chuck in a bit of help, be much appreciated.

    On a side note, i'll be carrying on Judo in Oxford as well, and as far as i'm aware, my best chance lies in joining the club situated in Oxford uni, again, if anyone know's of anything better, feel free to let me know.

    Cheers

    The martial arts options around Oxford are fairly limited, and as far as I know, no BJJ to be found. There are a couple of oxford locals on the board (cullion and liokault) who might know more.
    I recently started at the uni judo club and it's awesome, as well as being dirt cheap - 10/month for brookes people. It also seems fairly newaza focussed, so lack of BJJ in the area shouldn't cause too much trouble. Last time I trained there, there was a guy who used to train BJJ in Australia so it looks like the judo club was the best he could find.
    Good luck with your results.

    Has anyone here trained with Carlos Terrinha?

    So basically I'm driving along one day and pass by what I perceive to be the local Karate school, except now there is a huge sign out front that reads "BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU". One thing leads to another and I find out that they have a BJJ program that's not integrated with their Karate program...it's completely seperate.

    Out of curiousity has anyone trained with Carlos Terrinha? Any experiences, good, bad, or indifferent?

    Thanks in advance...

    Judging by people I've asked and threads like this, the judo club is probably your best bet. As a student, I'm assuming your funds are limited, but if at all possible its definitely worth your while making the trip to Gracie Barra Birmingham to train under Braulio.

    Well, he seems to have the creds. Everything is at least clear, who he represents, where he received his black belt from, his tournament history and notable wins, etc. He's one up on Robson Pereira that's for sure.

    No, haven't had direct experience, but many Brazilians with his credentials have huge amounts of mat time behind them - much more than American counterparts. Draculino is a well-known BB.

    Go roll there and see if you can even see what's coming when you're tapped. If not, that's a good place to start.
