And New – Bamma Welter Weight world champion.

This weekend saw the rise of BAMMA’s new crowned world champion Terry Brazier who has enjoyed a remarkable rise, having climbed to the top of BAMMA’s welterweight division in just his third year as a professional. BAMMA 34 marked Brazier’s eighth straight victory, just as significantly he snapped Alex Lahore’s ten fight win streak, which included two world championship bouts.

Professor Eddie Kone who is part of Terry braziers coaching team overseeing the jiu-jitsu elements for the fighters couldn’t be happier.

Everyone at the Eddie Kone Academy of jiu-jitsu wishes to congratulate Terry and his team on this amazing victory and look forward to the future as Terry continues to push forward in 2018.

students have to travel 1 hour or more to attend group classes or work in a shift pattern and as a result, they have trouble
 attending classes more than once a week.

Private lessons are ideal in this situation since they will ensure that the student 
maximises their time on the mat and the student can benefit at a reasonable rate.

Private Lessons with a Black Belt instructor also means students who wish to rectify problem areas / weaker areas of their jiu-jitsu
 can use private lessons to focus solely on this.

Sometimes, however, a student has some type of learning disability which 
prevents them from fully benefiting from the Group Classes in which case, the Private Classes may work much better.


If you simply want a more personal tuition and want to spread the cost bring a friend.

3 New Black belts at the Academy Hq

On Sunday the 26th of November 2017, The Eddie Kone academy of Jiu-Jitsu had its winter belt ceremony with over 50 students in attendance.

Professor Eddie Kone and his panel of black belts and assistants tested Mr Liam Wandi, Mr Shukie Lok and Mr Shaun Escoffery on both the technical, philosophical and mental aspects of jiu-jitsu. ( The Black Belt Exam).

At the end of the exam which lasted 5, hours all 3 students were promoted to the rank of Black Belt.

Also promoted were,

Mr James Gregory was promoted to the rank of red bar on his black belt.

Mr Zaid Williams was promoted to the rank of Brown Belt.

other academy students were also promoted to both the rank of Purple and Blue Belts.

To us at the Eddie Kone academy of jiu-jitsu, the coveted Black Belt symbolizes much more than a belt change, it symbolizes friendship, hard work, and our commitment to upholding the values of jiu-jitsu.

Congratulations to everyone who was promoted Your success is a reflection of your hard work and daily dedication to your study of jiu-Jitsu, its values & its philosophy.

Big thank you to Black belt Mark Bottom who travelled to assist us with the examination process.
