Founded in 2000, the Tōukon/Tōkon (lit. fighting spirit) Academy is a founder member of the Jiu-Jitsu Brotherhood and the ‘Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in Schools‘ initiative and through diligent commitment, we are proud to be one of the UK’s largest providers of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to pre-school children (aged 3-5) and school children (aged 5-13 years).
As the number one 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 programs of martial arts based breakfast and after-school classes across the UK as well as 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.
“In my opinion, the Tōukon Academy is the best place to train BJJ in Bedfordshire. David Webb is a technical and patient instructor who cares about the progress of his students. His jiu-jitsu is technical and effective, and he has good judo as well. As a fellow instructor, I would not hesitate to send my own students to learn from him. Highly recommended.” – Nicolas Gregoriades, Roger Gracie Black Belt & founder of the Jiu-Jitsu Brotherhood
