Several new students

Hey Auckland,

It’s been a hectic and exciting few months, so we figured you like a small update… Here it is! 🙂

Elliot, our new instructor.

Heading into winter, it’s great to see even more new faces at our club. Speaking of which, we’re especially pleased to welcome our friend Elliot to the team, who’s working hard to train our students as a new Buckland’s Beach Brazilian Jiu Jitsu instructor. Elliot and I met on the competition scene in the UK around 2013, while in the purple belt division. Today, we share the rank of black belt, so it’s a pleasure to be able to swap years of knowledge and have Elliot bring his wealth of expertise and insightful strategies to the team.


Instructor Elliot is new at Bucklands Beach BJJ


Elliot was a fierce competitor and a regular in several major UK competitions. In 2017 he was the number one ranked competitor in the brown belt division by the UKBJJA.

One of his greatest accomplishments was taking gold in the English open, and silver in the British, both incredibly difficult feats.

Winter means the Gi season competitions are on the near horizon, so I’m confident Elliot will be an amazing addition and a benefit to us all during our training schedule.


Training hard this May!


Come down and train with us!

Not every individual wants to compete, and that’s totally acceptable. We believe there’s a million and one alternative reasons to train Jiu Jitsu and currently at this academy, there’s a great mix of guys and girls, young and old, with different goals and aspirations. Feel free to come along and discover the benefits of training BJJ for yourself.

Until next time,

– Andy
