Ben Dyson is one of the highest level competitors to come out of the UK in recent years. Along with being a multiple time veteran of professional shows such as Polaris and Fight 2 Win, Ben also won the 2019 ADCC European trials.

Excellent instruction and demonstration – even as a white belt I was able to follow along and see how I could start using these techniques in my training.
