Our Pedigree

Founded in 2000, the Tōukon (lit. fighting spirit) Academy is Bedfordshire’s premier Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu academy and have been viewed as such for some time. This reputation is drawn from our extensive relationships with world-class coaches that periodically grace our mats to share their legendary expertise. However exclusive the access first-rate tuition is, it is only part of what we offer. Partnerships have been fostered over a number of years with local schools, law enforcement and emergency & armed services to deliver our curriculum’s to those that require them the most. We are proud to assert that officers from the Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire constabularies utilise our pedigree to stay acute for duty whilst serving members from the UK’s armed services bolster training objectives with tailored material designed and deliver by the Tōukon Academy.

As is so important, you can trace the lineage of the Tōukon Academy right back to the founders of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu:
David Webb // Nicolas Gregoriades // Roger Gracie // Carlos Gracie Jr. // Carlos Gracie
