About Ashley Grimshaw

Coach Profile

With a career spanning over 15 years including 10 as a pro MMA fighter, Ash is GBTT’s head Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu coach.

Coming from a family of footballers but not taking to the sport himself, Ash instead trained in judo from the ages of 7-15. Watching videos of UFC fights he was inspired to give MMA a try, and after finding a gym in 2002, he’s never looked back.

Ash teaches both gi and no-gi BJJ at GBTT, drawing upon his many years’ experience to encourage members to get the best out of their training. Ash also works closely with GBTT’s pro fighters, including Cage Warriors’ Dominique Wooding, and UFC’s Nathaniel Wood.
