Foot lock clinic with Dean Lister!

Wednesday is No Gi day at Combat Base Bolton, where you can find me teaching all the non IBJJF friendly techniques I’ve acquired over the years from training at various grappling clubs around the North West.

With this in mind, check out this cool video from the leg lock legend that is Dean Lister and be sure to drill these out in class and start taking home some ankles……….


Lee Jones – GOLD!

Massive congrats from myself and the lads to super heavy weight Lee Jones on his gold medal at the Blackpool Open at the weekend; Lee finally faced someone at his own weight, George Higgins from Checkmat in London and the lads gave a masterclass on competitive BJJ.  One of the best matches I’ve seen in a long time, both lads fought their hearts out and gave it 101%

An epic battle between two young warriors, real nail biting action! Massive thanks to George Higgins for stepping up and giving Lee a real run for his money, he’s a credit to himself and his club.  As with many BJJ fights, after the result, both combatants are now very good friends, which is what Jiu Jitsu is all about, so sit back and enjoy a thrilling fight………….
