Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Instructors
Kevin Hall – Head Coach
I started my Brazilian Jiu Jitsu training in under Roy Dean in 2007. In 2014 I continued my training under Jeff Lawson and currently hold a bjj brown belt. I was very active on the tournament circuit at purple belt and in 2015 became the British Champion and finished the year as the no.1 ranked purple belt master in the country. As well as being very active myself I am also very proud that both our junior and adult programs are being very successful on the tournament circuit to.
Tom Baker – Head No Gi Coach
I am a purple belt and have been training for just over 5 years at bsma.
I have competed at most of the uk opens and have won gold at blue belt and purple belt at the bournemouth and surrey open I’m not a regular competitor but I do like to test my shelf now and then.
I’m a big de la riva player and the triangle choke is my favorite submission.
Over the last few years our club has grown so much so teaching now and then has increased and I love it and hope to continue to become a better teacher and competitor.
Jack Brickley – No Gi Coach
6th Degree Black Belt and Head Coach
I began my Martial Arts training at the age of 15 in Taekwondo. I gained my 1st Dan Black Belt in 1996 and currently hold the rank of 5th Dan Black Belt. As well as extensive training I also undertook a teaching apprenticeship during 1998 – 2000 where I taught and managed over 250 active students in Sioux City, IA USA.
This was invaluable in gaining the experience to teach a quality martial arts program to both children and adults. Since my return I have run a successful school in the Basingstoke area.
I have won golds in many local and national tournaments and although retired from competing myself I still enjoy supporting and coaching my students to tournament success
