Jeff Lawson’s Ippon gym is an inclusive training space dedicated to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. With more than 25 years on the front lines of competitive martial arts, Lawson created Ippon to be free from intimidation and judgement. Ippon is a friendly, no-nonsense training gym that welcomes anyone with an interest in improving their mental and physical fitness.
As well as group classes in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Muay Thai, we also have open mat sessions, one-to-one training, and a dynamic children’s programme from ages five through to eighteen. As such, we have a lot of families in the Ippon community.
Our gym is an environment that nurtures growth, discipline and agility – both physically and mentally. Whether it’s building resilience and strength for competitions, or developing a focussed and strategic approach in intense situations, the attitudes and lessons learnt extend far beyond our time on the mats.
