BJJ in Bedfordshire  The Tōukon Academy™ Bedfordshire's Leading Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy Since 2000 #bjjinbedfordshire #bjjinbedford #transformyourlifestyle

#6 Petar Zrelec // Tōukon Academy @bjjinbedfordshire purple belt 24/05/2018.

Petar originally came to the Tōukon Academy in February 2017 after an extensive period of high quality training under the guidance of Keith McKenzie and Checkmat in Crawley, Sussex.

A blue belt for a little over four and a half years, he also has a background in world class Kayaking from his native Serbia and it is this insight to high level performance and competition that I belive has crafted Petar's attention to efficient technique and the refinement of his overall Jiu-Jitsu.

Even when attending the most basic class at the academy, where fundamentals are delivered for the most novice of student, Petar's desire to understand the correct application of the movement and the logic behind its use, demands my knowledge be on point so the explanation befits the enquiriy.
This acute understanding is trumped however by the tenacity and guile he brings to randori. I've enjoyed not only watching Petar roll with his peers over this last year or so but also having to uplevel my own performance every time we train together otherwise I'll fall dramatically short.

Well done my friend, you're an exceptional adjunct to have at the Tōukon Academy.

Roots // on Tuesday 12 June I had the distinct pleasure of hosting two pioneers of grappling in Bedford at the Tōukon Academy @bjjinbedfordshire - 6°black belts Robin Gell and Stephen Sweetlove MBE - my old a judo coaches.
Gratitude and admiration are two things that seem to be missing nowadays in the martial arts world, without these two gentlemen I would never have developed a passion for 'jacket' wrestling or had the exposure to all the wonderful people I have met across the years.

The avidity both have is infectious and their knowledge is simply immeasurable.

Thank you so much gentlemen, keep being that inspiration.

#5 Simon Gooch // Tōukon Academy @bjjinbedfordshire purple belt.
Back on the 23 June 2015 I awarded Simon his blue belt. With the accompanying picture I wrote: "One of the toughest guys to hold down, his Gi game has come on leaps and bounds since joining us in August 2014 and his tenacity and technical game were responsible for securing his victory (at weight) at the Tōukon Academy inter-club championships in December 2014. His approach to training and how he represents himself both on and off the tatami is a real refreshment and I look forward to sharing some more hard battles with him as he continues his journey with us." Nothing had changed except he is now harder to hold down and has exceptional wrestling.

He is a nightmare in the scramble and someone you have to be exact with everywhere.

A keen competitor, Simon can be found on the tatami at the Tōukon Academy at least four times a week, his appetite to learn is immense and over the last four years every roll has been more dynamic, more tenacious than the last. Every time is see him walk into the dojo I know I am about to get better - congratulations on your fantastic achievement Si!
