About Tom.

In Tom’s words “First and foremost, I’m a martial artist and love to train. On top of that, I’ve won some medals along the way, most notably

  • 3x IBJJF No-Gi World Champion
  • IBJJF European Champion
  • 5x British Open Champion
  • IBJJF European Masters Champion
  • Polaris Pro Veteran
  • ADCC 2011 Finalist

However, my path to Jiu Jitsu success has been far from smooth. For the vast majority of my Jiu Jitsu journey, my only training partners were my students and friends. My instructor, Braulio Estima lived over two hundred miles away, which meant I had very limited access to him. At best, I would only get to spend two hours a month training with Braulio and had to fit that around teaching and running a martial arts academy. Despite these obstacles, I still managed to get my Black Belt in a just over five years and win a bunch of competitions along the way. Now, it would be easy to say that I was special in some way, but that’s simply NOT true. I just had an open mind, and a willingness to do what most people won’t. In many ways, I’m grateful for my bumpy Jiu Jitsu journey. As the only way, I could train consistently was by learning where I could and sharing my knowledge with my students. This forced me to break down techniques in a different way than most Jiu Jitsu players. I wasn’t just copying what my instructor did; I had to understand why it works so I could share the knowledge. And I want to share that knowledge with you so you can avoid the same frustrations I faced along your Jiu Jitsu journey.”
