My name is Seymour Yang. I live and work in London, England. I began martial arts when I started university and took up karate. That was a loooong time ago. For over ten years I trained and ran my own club in Japanese-style traditional, ju-jitsu. I also took up Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu about seven years ago and now train exclusively in this combat sport. In January 2010 I was awarded the rank of purple belt by my coach, Nick Brooks, at the Mill Hill Roger Gracie Academy.
I love training BJJ and I also love writing and photographing about it. Some of my work has been featured on websites such as The Fightworks Podcast and On The Mat, and some of my work has been published in magazines such as Martial Arts Illustrated, Combat and Fighters.
But most of all, I love to write about all sorts of random topics within the world of BJJ, so I hope you enjoy your visit. Come back again!
