“To win 100 victories in 100 battles is not the highest skill. To subdue the enemy without fighting is the highest skill”

Sun Tzu

“You have no control over what the other guy does. You only have control over what you do.”

our instructors

It can be difficult to understand how experienced an instructor might be. In some martial arts it can take ten or fifteen years to reach a black belt, others just a few. In some martial arts lower grades teach, in others you can find 3rd or 4th degree black belts who have little teaching experience. Some martial arts insist on a black belt, others don’t. On top of this, what a black belt means is different for different martial arts. Because of this we thought it might be more useful to let you know how long our instructors have been training in and teaching our style of jiu jitsu, rather than give a list of grades or titles. 

Keith Cooper. 

Keith is our senior instructor, and is also an aiuchi grader. He has been training in our style of jiu jitsu since 1995. He taught his first sessions in the late 90s and has been a club instructor since 2003. Keith normally leads the Huntingdon session and teaches the kids club. 


Tor Nyhuss. 

Tor has been training since 2008 and began teaching the Bedford club with Sam in 2015. 

Sam Kelly. 

Sam has been training since the mid 90’s, initally with the jiu jitsu foundation. After a few years off the mat he started with aiuchi in the late 2000s. He has been teaching the Bedford club with Tor since 2015.    

Zoe Cooper  

Zoe has been training since 1998, initially with the WJJF in Bradford. She started with aiuchi in 1999. She has been training with aiuchi ever since, firstly in London, then Bedford and now in Huntingdon, although she was off the mat for a few years when she had children.  She has been helping to run the kids club since it opened in 2016.
