Anyone know any bjj classes in Wigan?


Also I need recommendations on Aspull Olypmic Wrestling, do they still teach submissions or are they purely Olympic Wresters?

Welcome aboard, miscend! The Bullshido staff would welcome you personally, but the thing is they’re busy keeping the peace, so they’ve apointed me, a bot, to pat you on the back and assure you that in no way will you be harmed during your stay here at BS.net. Your views on the martial arts, your philosphy, maybe even your entire reason for being will be challenged, shattered, reorganized, melted down, and forged into something new and shiny, but we swear it will only hurt a little bit… at first.

I'm guessing you're the same guy that started a similar thread on Sherdog (http://www.sherdog.net/forums/showthread.php?t=728646) and this one (http://www.cagewarriors.com/forums/showthread.php?p=130634) on CageWarriors? Looks like the latter forum gave you some good advice already, so I'll just c&p some of the clubs they mentioned in case anyone else looking for BJJ in Wigan comes across this thread.

Firstly, looks like the closest place is Combat Base (http://combatbasebolton.blogspot.com/) in Bolton, where you can get BJJ from Carl Fisher, with personal recommendations from this poster (http://www.cagewarriors.com/forums/showpost.php?p=130805&postcount=6).

Also, one of the posters on CageWarriors linked to a 2003 review (http://sfuk.tripod.com/articles_03/snakepit_1.html) of Aspull, judging by which it sounds like it could be a useful alternative, if training is still similar after 5 years.

There was also mention of a sub wrestling club in Atherton (http://www.cagewarriors.com/forums/showpost.php?p=130702&postcount=5), suitably called Atherton Submission Fighting.
