Diccon Alves-Souza Lynes
Highly passionate about Brazilian Jiu Jitsu - has trained in Brazil and recently become a student under Eddie Kone, a Royler Gracie Black belt.
I started learning Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in June, 2006 and since 2013 have dedicated myself to teaching.
Beginning BJJ at any age really isn’t too late and I say to beginners, ‘you haven’t started too late, we can do this together for the next twenty years’. I didn’t start BJJ until I was 36 and now I’m 50, even more interested than I was right back at the beginning. Being part of the Lifestyle Team will give you what you are looking for.
My enjoyment now comes from getting people started, building their interest and teaching them the ground positions and escapes.
BJJ is healthy in lots of ways and extends way beyond practice. Being part of a team, following a physically healthy pursuit, sharing laughter and being around a like minded group are all extremely positive things. I have benefited immensely, gaining new skills all the time, which keeps me interested on my path – I never stop learning. I feel calm, contented and healthier in body and mind. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu has become a lifestyle which extends way beyond my weekly training sessions – it’s 24/7 and provides direction.
