Alex recently contacted me about this space in India hoping to get in touch with those in India looking to train or perhaps teach jiu-jitsu. -Luke
"I started training BJJ by the end of 2008 in Hong Kong. I learned the basics from Taki at Kowloon JJ. For over a half a year, I then trained at HKJJ with Makoto Aramaki. With his help, I went to Japan and train with Wado-san of Academia AZ and participated in the Rickson Cup in Hamamatsu. I moved back to Germany and trained a couple of months with Andrej Rogoschin at Hutton BJJ, Munich. As far as I now, Andrej is the only Brazilian Black Belt in Germany now...For half a year I've been based in Bangalore India. Since there is no BJJ school here,I asked neighbors and people from the street whether they want to train with me on the rooftop.... I was very lucky and found an Indian gentleman, who is really interested in learning BJJ and he showed me a nice gym with proper mats! I've been showing him the basics as best as I can, but since I am still a white-belt we could really use some professionell support here in India. When our club has more members we will invite purple belts and above to put on seminars here."
