Yes, John Goldson runs the gym, Sheffields first BJJ black belt. He also coaches the MMA, s+c/cardio classes, all good stuff.

Check out EKBJJ NORTH. Have a look at the links on my signature.

 

A strong club, we train under Eddie Kone. Come and have a look.

Train at Graves leisure center on a Wednesday.

Do you think Einsteins teachers were all world famous scientists?

 

Do you think Usain Bolts coaches were all record breaking sprinters?

 

John Goldson is an awesome coach, he's not a regular competitor but he trains amateur, semi-pro and pro MMA fighters, and has BJJ students (me included) who fight in competitions.

 

And, for that matter, the "head honcho" of GB North is Lagarto, who recently won gold in the European BJJ championships.

 

My 20p

Pep doesn't train in Hillsborough anymore. His club is in Darnall. He is an awesome coach too.

 

You won't get anyone better on the ground in Sheffield than John though. Go to both clubs. It'll make you a better fighter.

keep your 20p

iv heard (gracie barra) john goldson is a good bjj coach but i like to compete and when i do i like to know my corner knows what its like to go throught what im going through when im doing it. anyway i don't want to do bjj i want to do mma john has'nt done mma so hes no good for ME.

do i think bolts coach was a record breaker NO but expect him to have been a runner before he coaches it.

do i think einstein teachers was famous scientists NO but expect them to have learnt science before teaching it.

 

bjj is not mma. some people may use bjj in mma fights but mma is the full package. just want to train under somone that really knows & done mma.

 

thanks bjjman for the info.
