The BJJ Lifestyle Team will start training in September 2013, in Kingston upon Thames, Surrey . Focusing entirely on complete beginners of all weights from age 16 and upwards, the BJJ Lifestyle Team is aiming to become a close-knit team that will initially compete at White Belt level at competitions across the UK.
We will be focusing entirely on Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
The team will be led by Diccon Lynes who is a Brown Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu under Leo Negao.
Leo is from Rio de Janeiro and is one of the best Black Belts in the UK – he has been a Black Belt for over 10 years. Leo will visit Kingston for occasional team training sessions and seminars.
The BJJ Lifestyle Team’s technical development will also benefit greatly from the occasional involvement of Lyubo Kumbarov. Lyubo is a 4 times Bulgarian National Freestyle Wrestling champion. Lyubo will be giving the team a great insight into Wrestling takedowns without the Gi.
Leo and Lyubo are both exceptional grapplers and excellent teachers who bring a relaxed approach to the way they teach.
