    alister Huh?

    Hi there - I know of two in Kent - I train at both.

    One is a Carlson Gracie club in Tonbridge:

    The other is Rickson Gracie, in Northfleet, Kent - PM me for details of that one.

    Carlson's is very competition oriented and Rickson's is very technical...depends what you're looking for and how far you want to/can travel. I guess Tonbridge is closer, and being on a sunday is cool. But, I have to say, Rickson's style is hard to beat IMHO.

    I notice you do CKD - I used to do that (Il Dan CI)...I promise you..if you do try BJJ it will open your eyes and only in a good way! :D

    Just found these as well:

    Gracie Barra in Hastings:

    Thanks alister,
    I have made contact with the school in Brighton, and have scheduled a lesson for next week.
    Really looking forward to it!
    Thanks again for the information.

    Have trained a little with Marcio and he strikes me as a down-to-earth, respectful guy, with more than enough skills to show. ^_^

    Also trained for six months at Sleeping Storm, and Ricardo, the Brown Belt there, is another excellent grappler and all-around good teacher. Also a lot of regular trainees there which gives the place a bit more of a family feel to it.

    Wherever you end up, tell us how it is and best of luck with it!

    Take care,

    Stalks
