Overcome opponents by improving your grappling and ground fighting techniques. Classes are available for all levels, in both gi and no gi BJJ.



Learn and develop clinching and grappling techniques to improve your groundwork.



Incorporate boxing, muay thai and kickboxing techniques to learn self-defence and MMA striking skills.

  • My wife surprised me for my 40th birthday with a one-to-one PT with Brad, it has to be one of the best birthday presents I’ve ever had. Brad and all of the team there were so welcoming. I have since been a couple more times to their classes and I have also taken my son along for the kids classes which he also really enjoyed. We are going to make an effort to attend classes regularly. They have made such a nice family environment and are so welcoming to everyone.

  • When I first joined GBTT in January 2022 I was a little nervous at first, because I'm coming in with a clean sheet and I have never done Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu before and it was all new to me. I'm a much happier person than I was seven months ago. Training with Liam has been awesome, but the biggest thing I've gotten from GBTT is making lifelong friends whether that's training during Gi, no Gi, or Boxing. It has been awesome and being in GBTT has helped me gain my confidence back which I lost towards the end of last year.

  • I have been training at GBTT academy for the past 7 months and can say with confidence that this is a premier club that we are lucky to have in London. The facilities are 10/10 but this is just a bonus to having great teachers like Coach's Ashley Grimshaw and Brad Pickett, theyre both fighters of a high level and teachers who genuinely care about their students.
