Kraken Submission Grappling

Our relationship with Kraken Submission Grappling began mid-way through 2017 after head coach Mark Tomlinson came to train at the Tōukon Academy. An exceptional grappler with skills far beyond his blue belt level, Mark is largely self-taught and has an excellent understanding of Jiu-Jitsu, especially its no-Gi application. The Tōukon Academy is proud to be associated with Kraken Submission Grappling and wholeheartedly supports Mark's efforts in spreading the science of Jiu-Jitsu in and around Ely, Cambridgeshire.
