    You lucky devil Jason Knight. There is a BJJ/wrestling place in London Bridge

    http://www.tokeicentre.org/index.shtml

    You know have one of the only places in London where you can do wrestling near you and you can do BJJ as well. Today is your lucky day. You can do both and become an MMA/grappling don, particularly if you take up Muay Thai


    Don't say I don't help people

    I'd just like to say Kevin Chan is a Black Belt at the RGA and also a chunner ;)

    I currently train at the Carlson Gracie school in hammersmith. It's cheaper then either of the above and is usually taught by brown belts. I'm a noob so I won't say much other then a) I enjoy it and like the atmosphere b) we do quite well in competition
    http://www.carlsongracie.org/ is the link

    Yeah. That's pretty much was I was thinking too.

    The pricing depends the exact mix of classes you want to take. Your best bet is to email/ring Luiz and ask him.

    Carlson guys = badasses, no argument there. If BJJ for MMA is what you want they're probably at the head of the pack right now.

    He sometimes takes the classes here which actually looks fairly reasonable in terms of pricing.

    My London geography is horrible so I don't know if I can help on that.

    I will say that all three of the schools mentioned in this thread are excellent.

    RGA is a great place for sport BJJ, Roger isn't always taking the class but Jude and Fellipe are both great instructors with a great eye for detail. There are loads of good guys at all levels so it's a great place to get a technical BJJ game. It is pricey though.

    London Fight Factory/Brasa Team. Good guys with three black belts (across a range of size from Luiz to Thiago) on the mats most nights you can't complain and there's MMA on offer to give you an all round game. Not quite the same level of sport BJJ there but there's far more variety and I'd assume the BJJ is taught with an eye to MMA rather than BJJ competition.

    Carlson Gracie. These boys train hard. It's a classic Carlson style game they teach and they teach it well. This is a gym that will toughen you up quick. OSSSSSSS!!!

    Basically you're spoiled for choice.

    How far North, sorry, "Norf"? Nick Brooks is in Mill Hill and a BJJ Brown Belt plus JJ 4th Dan and Lord knows what else.

    If your interested, I'll try to dig out the URL. He was also on the mat at SENI07 as Ref.
