My name is David Webb, I am a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu under Nicolas Gregoriades, a black belt in Judo with the British Judo Association and a second degree black belt in Shotokan Karate under the Japan Karate Association. I’ve have been training martial arts for over 25 years and since 2000 been the head coach of my own successful martial arts academy – the Tōukon Academy – the largest and most successful Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu academy in Bedfordshire.

Since I began my own personal martial arts journey in the early 1990’s I have spent years training in various styles; exhausted those accepted as traditional and competed in those considered more functional. I have honed my skills with striking-based arts as well as various grappling systems. Never complacent, I have combined this with every conceivable kind of fitness routine and sought to better my own personal knowledge up to degree level.

Over the last few years I have concentrated my focus to develop a series of programmes that I believe provide the ultimate lifestyle transformation. The routines I personally engage in every single day have been refined and structured into a complete package that has successfully transformed many individuals: men, women and children, sports teams, members of the armed and emergency services and professionals across every walk of life physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually and I’d like to share what I have learned with you on the mats of my academy.

My program will identify and create brand new routines offering personal rewards that simply cannot be measured – intangible rewards that you will crave – habitual patterns you will learn for the better. You will become mindful during work, rest and play and no matter what life decides to throw your way our program is guaranteed to equip you with the tools to achieve your full potential. Let me transform your lifestyle.


Throughout the ages people have sought ways to improve their fitness, well-being and health. Mostly mundane and repetitive the majority leave us uninterested, exhausted and frustrated, with little to show for our effort. Nevertheless, a quick search online unearths millions of ways to ‘hack’ your life for the better: fitness, nutrition, sleep, executive, cognitive and cerebral functioning. Some approaches add value to life, so many more get rebuked, many are extreme and cosmetic yet few are subtle and profound. Each week a new craze, a new ‘protocol’, a new ‘methodology’ is created often with its very own jargon and spin on a much older approach that has fallen before it. New workouts are advertised through infomercials containing a ’28-day’ detox, upgrade or fix as well as a ‘money back guarantee’ usually accompanied by a shot of testosterone and a professional airbrush to suck you – the consumer – in for a quick buck.


Jiu-Jitsu is the thinking man’s martial art. It’s like a game of physical chess, requiring all of your resources to challenge you on many different levels.

When I first enrolled at the Renzo Gracie Academy in New York City I would hear people say how Brazilian jiu-jitsu is a way of life, how it made them better human beings, how they couldn’t, wouldn’t ever stop or trade it for anything else. Honestly, I thought these people were a little crazy. I’d see them at the academy when I trained in the morning, then I’d also seen them if I trained at night, and I couldn’t help but wonder if they had any lives outside BJJ. Little did I know I’d become one of them.

It’s as real as it can get. This has made me a better person. It’s made me a better man. It’s made me understand myself, my weaknesses, my strength’s, the shit I need to work on. Jiu-Jitsu has been one of the most valuable tools I’ve ever had in my life.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) acts as many things to many people. A competitive sport with an enormous network of associations stretching across the globe, a mechanism trusted as the world’s #1 form of personal self-defence and an enrichment tool that quite literally transforms lives. Refined across many generations, BJJ, as we have come to understand it, is a complete grappling system that encourages both standing and ground techniques. Derived from traditional Japanese Ju-Jitsu and more recently Kodakan Judo, classes are conducted in a Jiu-Jitsu uniform called a kimono. Jiu-Jitsoka are ranked based on their ability to apply technique underpinned by the universal concepts and principles of body mechanics and physics.

BJJ places heavy emphasis on positional strategy; in Jiu-Jitsu, the position you are in relation to your opponent is paramount. The objective is to first establish a position, and then to finish the fight via submission utilising efficient leverage through a joint from either top or bottom positions. Universally, Jiu-Jitsu is considered the #1 martial art for self-defence and is perfect for women and children. Nevertheless, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is more than just a sport, more than just a way to stay fit and or defend yourself: it is a lifestyle – a lifestyle that is all encompassing, one you grow into and begin to love in an instant; to understand this, you simple must get involved.

Here is your chance.

I would like to invite you as a complete novice to come and try my programme out for yourself.

I have been with Professor David Webb now for 2 years, since moving from Roger Gracie Mill Hill due to work commitments. The tutelage on offer is not just world class Jiu Jitsu but his knowledge in anatomy and physiology explains why and how Jiu Jitsu works on the human body. David having 3 Black Belts, including 1 in judo, is an asset when we are learning stand up techniques for competition and training, as Jiu Jitsu starts from standing then eventually will go to the ground. The Toukon Academy students all have an amazing camaraderie from when you enter till the time you leave. Without Jiu Jitsu I would not be as focused as I am today, and having spent 16 years so far in the British Army I am in the best shape I have ever been.

Jiu-Jitsu has transformed my lifestyle because it puts life in perspective. Every time you roll, you literally put your life in someone else’s hands. Every decision you make is theoretically a life and death one. Suddenly, the things that used to stress you out and overwhelm you become ‘water off a ducks back’ and inconsequential. You gain a confidence and self-assuredness that you would never have thought possible.

Starting Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu six years ago was a step into the unknown. After trying other martial arts which did not provide the expected satisfaction or challenge, BJJ opened my mind to the real and practical application of martial arts and grappling techniques. Regular training is the perfect elixir for balance in modern life. Learning, improving and applying fighting techniques provides the mental and physical balance necessary for performance in all other areas. The challenge of rolling with training partners, reward from achieving a submission, reflection and self improvement after being submitted build the motivation to develop even further – BJJ is the most rewarding activity I have ever taken part in and its essential for overall well-being.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu has provided me with an outlet to gain better fitness without having to do the long jogs or forcing myself to be motivated to go to the gym. It enabled me to try something new without even realising I was getting fit! I’ve found it’s given me a healthier lifestyle as the more I’ve got committed to BJJ, the more it’s made me think about what I’m eating and other ways to exercise that will all complement BJJ.

I have been actively involved and training martial arts for over twenty-five years and training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for over 10 years. My training programs consistently produce top quality grapplers that ‘understand’ Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and my academy’s relationship with world-class coaches extends over a far greater area. I am currently the largest provider of functional martial arts for children in Bedfordshire and provide the largest Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu driven school-club link in the UK. My academy’s membership base consistently grows year-on-year as we continually improve our services and specialised training for law enforcement personnel, members of the armed services and people just like you – in short, we are simply the best at what we do in the area!
