This blog is written and maintained by Graham Barlow, a BJJ brown belt, martial arts writer and technology journalist from the UK.
I started martial arts back in 1993, and have been a teacher of Kung Fu and Tai Chi for a long time. I started BJJ in 2011 and immediately fell in love with it. Here was a martial art that finally offered the promise of technique overcoming brute strength. I got my blue belt in 1 year. If you’re really interested, you can read the longer version of my story here.
I train at Gracie Barra Bath. All opinions here are my own and not reflective of my club or teacher.
I hate contact forms too, but trust me – I actually reply 🙂
