Keith Hipkiss Brazilian jiujitsu teacher uk
i hope this is the right place to post :)
interested in finding if this guy keith is a legit Brazilian jiujitsu guy
my young relative wanted to join the club but heard maybe keith wasnt for real
keith hipkiss or keith richard hipkiss runs a kick boxing club in congleton cheshire uk that changed into a mma and Brazilian jiujitsu club
keith appeared as a purple belt in bjj
the clubs website mentions him winning bronze in IBJJF London Open in October 2013 but suposedly there were only 3 entrants in that category......
the site says "despite having a broken finger he still made the decision to compete and won bronze"
the club site also links to his online shop and he is always plugging his mma shop on facebook apparently
i hear that keith never rolls with his students except his mate
what do you think?
Here's who he claims to have gotten his belt from...
"Keiths BJJ Instructor and Master is Professor Jose Marcello F Rodrigues 'Ze Marcello' who is a 4th Degree black belt and previous world Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Champion who trained under Sergio 'Bolao' Souza."
i forgot about this thread!!
my cousin ended up going to a bigger gym further away
strange that the person who replied to my original post only made 2 posts? and hasnt posted since
a friend said that there is no photograph of keith getting his purple from Ze Marcello on his website
he also found comments keith made on a "Purple Belt Requirements" dvd page which strikes me as dodgy
keith now has white belt teaching as an Assistant Instructor too!!
