“A few of my friends started Brazilian Jujitsu and I was interested but put it off. I moved down to Plymouth for university and found Checkmat, due to the hours I worked I could not train the regular classes so I did private sessions with Ian (The head coach) and it was the best thing I ever did! His passion for jujitsu is inspiring but I think his true passion is seeing his students grow. I am a year into my BJJ journey and I feel my game has catapulted due to those 3 months of private sessions I did with Ian. It has engrained principles in my game, Come join us! if your work hours don’t allow you to attend regular classes, do what I did and get a head start and get some private sessions in with the Ian. His knowledge of juijitsu is endless… ossss”
