Diccon Alves-Souza Lynes

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Coach

Brown belt since September 2013

I am a Brown Belt under Leo Negao and 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 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 from my teacher, which keeps me interested on my path. 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.



I am interested in the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu belt structure and whilst enjoying the journey, also look forward to receiving my black belt one day.

Contact me and I will answer any questions you have.

I believe reaching the level of black belt will be one of my life time achievements – and something that will give me a great sense of satisfaction.






  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
