Nick founded Mill Hill BJJ back when he was a brown belt under Roger Gracie in a small building called The Boat. The academy grew into the success it is today because Nick welcomed everybody and made a place where everyone wanted to be and to work together as a team. As well as being the head instructor of the academy, Nick built and headed up the Mill Hill association with over 30 academies around Europe.
Mill Hill BJJ academy has always been well respected in the competition scene, as the instructors lead from the front and compete regularly lead by Nicks example. Nick himself is a two times world champion and multiple Europeans champion, the highest achievements in BJJ. But for Nick it was the time spent training and competing in Brazil that really struck a chord with him.
He truly loved and lived BJJ and was often called the BJJ encyclopedia. He is a fundamental force in UK BJJ and is missed by so many the world over. His teachings and spirit live on in the many people who were fortunate to train with and know him.
