Chris ‘Cabelo’ Jones

Professor Chris 'Cabelo' Jones.

Professor Chris Jones, or Cabelo, as he's affectionately known as at the club, began his Brazilian Jiu Jitsu journey at the age of 18 in 2006.

Over the years Cabelo has been a very active competitor and gotten some great results at high ranked competitions, both nationally and internationally.
Over the years Cabelo discovered he had a particular affinity for the NoGi side of Jiu Jitsu and tends to specialise in NoGi techniques and competitions, although make no mistake, he is still a danger to most in the Gi.

Cabelo was awarded his Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu by Raphael dos Santos in December 2015.

Now, Cabelo currently assists head coach James Hodges with the Wednesday NoGi Class, often demonstrating some NoGi/Wrestling takedowns and assisting with the main technique of the night.
Cabelo is also often present at the Monday Live Training sessions, as well as Friday's Sparring classes.
