WELCOME TO THE TOUKON ACADEMY
THE HOME OF BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU IN BEDFORDSHIRE

Founded in 2000, the Tōukon (lit. fighting spirit) Academy is Bedfordshire’s premier Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu academy.
We are a member of the United Kingdom Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Association (UKBJJA), the founder academy of the ‘Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in Schools‘ initiative and proud to be the UK’s largest providers of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to pre-school aged children (aged 3-5 years). As the largest and most successful Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy in Bedfordshire we have developed relationships with several world-class coaches and competitors in order to provide a pedigree of regular world-class black-belt instruction.
Our student base is wide and varied. In conjunction with many lower, middle and upper schools we are proud to offer one of the largest structured programs of martial arts study through breakfast and after-school sessions across the UK as well as the infrastructure designed to impart functional self-protection knowledge and advice to post 16 students as they embark on work and or university life.
Our combined knowledge of grappling and sports science is utilised by rugby teams to provide off-season training and the functionality of our Jiu-Jitsu and wrestling programs have fostered very healthy working relationships with members of the emergency and armed services. In short, if you live or work in Bedfordshire and want to train Jiu-Jitsu or would like your children to train Jiu-Jitsu from the best coaches in the area you should be looking to train with the Tōukon Academy. We look forward to welcoming you to our mats.

PRIVATE TUITION AT THE TOUKON ACADEMY.

The Tōukon Academy is keen to facilitate as much convenience as possible into its timetable, however, with working life as it is, the shift patterns of many professions dictate that at times regular training sessions are hard to make. As such we offer private 1-2-1 coaching opportunities at our full-time venue for those people who’s working life doesn’t permit them to attend regular sessions or indeed those people that prefer to learn in such an environment that offers 100% feedback 100% of the time.
Unlike group classes, in which some students may feel left behind, private lessons allow your instructor to tailor the class exclusively. For many, busy regular classes can be intimidating. Private lessons allow the student to develop a basic level of skills before attending regular classes, should they so desire.
The Tōukon Academy is Bedfordshire’s leading academy, our pedigree is unrivaled in the area and we are keen to assist you in the best possible way, whatever your requirements.
