    So it looks like im going to hudderfield to college, and i'm thinking of starting BJJ over there. I've trained some BJJ through MMA classes and seminars, but I mostly have trained kickboxing up to this point and would like to get more into bjj. Through google, what i think looks like the best option is "Nova Vida BJJ". According to the web their instructers are as follows:

    Instructors Andrew Williams (Brown Belt),
    Andrew Farrell (Purple Belt),
    Michael Lyn (Purple Belt)

    The club is affiliated with the Ricardo Mattos BJJ club in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

    What do you guys who are knowledgable of BJJ think?

    Also, if you know any other gyms that are nearby please share, but i will not have my own car and will be relying on public transport so not too far away. Thanks.

    Nova Vida was one of the older clubs in the UK: Homepage of Nova Vida BJJ
    Andy is a very experienced coach and grappler, he must have been a brown belt for 4 or 5 years now.

    Andy Farrell has his own club in Huddersfield these days: Farrell MMA | Huddersfield MMA Club and he offers a range of stuff, bjj, no gi, wrestling, MMA.

    Also worth checking out this thread for other clubs in the area: BJJ Halifax
