We all need things to keep our minds and bodies in shape. I am lucky enough to have stumbled upon a hobby which covers both bases incredibly well. I was introduced to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu by my younger brother. It is a martial art similar to Judo, which involves no striking, but requires you to use your technique, body weight and leverage to force your opponent to submit. He had started training 6 months prior to me and kept telling me how much he loved it. So I gave it a try....

On my first lesson I got splattered..

On my second lesson I got splattered and choked...

On my third lesson I got splattered, wrenched, and choked..

And so on, and so on....


I stuck with it and now a couple of years later I am doing my own fair share of splattering, choking, cranking etc. with a truly cracking bunch of guys at Carlson Gracie Revolution Team Ashford.



This sport truly is life changing, physically and mentally.  It make you very fit, very quickly. It shows you your body's strengths and limitations. It teaches you about how you handle pressure, competition, pain, stress and defeat. It teaches you humility and that the knowledge is a more powerful weapon than pure physical strength alone.



Get involved with Carlson Gracie Revolution Team at a number of locations in Kent and London.
