Diccon Alves-Souza Lynes

Black Belt Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Coach

I started learning Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in June, 2006. It’s amazing how we change as we go through life – and I have for a long time now, reached a point where pounding bags for hours every week – has absolutely no interest for me at all. I feel I am in a better place. 

In June 2006, I was only interested in the ground fighting positions and how to escape them. I didn’t believe for one moment that I would grow to love sport Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and my interest would change how I feel about many things in life.

I believe BJJ is healthy in lots of ways – for me, I am gaining new skills all the time, which keeps me interested on my path – never stop learning. I feel calm, contented and healthier in body and particularly, mind. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu has become a lifestyle which extends way beyond my weekly training sessions – it’s 24/7 and provides direction.

Contact me on 07974 303 147 and I will be very pleased to answer any questions you may have, tell you about our team and how I believe joining us and learning Jiu-Jitsu will have a very positive impact on your life.

  1. I’ve trained with Diccon for a month or two and have really enjoyed the experience. There are many ‘McDojos’ out there where it’s all about the money and you barely get to talk to the higher grades let alone spar with them. With Diccon you get to do all this and to really learn techniques, he’ll drill techniques until you’ve learnt them rather than just flying through move after move.
    Also there is a lot of emphasis on practical techniques rather that the frivolous stuff taught in some clubs, applicable for self-defence as well as competition.
    I highly recommend the club, if you’re thinking of starting BJJ this is definitely the club for you
