Come and Enjoy a Taste of Paradise!

This camp offers you an alternative grappling holiday like no other.

Join us at our secluded venue on the north-east coast of the Isle of Wight, where you can train and unwind in equal measure.

Enjoy the peace and quiet of the ancient oak woodlands and feel your stresses melt away.

With private access to the beautiful Wootton Creek, you can swim right from the pontoon, or soak up the Isle of Wight sun on the beach, which is just five minutes walk away.

We put great emphasis on fantastic food, so your training sessions will be well fuelled, and all dietary requirements are catered for.

After a day of learning and making new friends who share your passion, there's nothing quite like winding down with a swim and a fire on the beach.

Our mission is always to facilitate an unforgettable experience, and we consider your down-time as much as your training: with boat rides, water sports, beach parties, chasing sunsets around the island, and more.

Tom Barlow

BJJ Black Belt and 3x No-Gi World Champion

Tom "The Mighty Barlow" has been a key figure in UK BJJ and international jiu jitsu since the mid-2000s. Receiving his black belt in 2011 from Braulio Estima, he has trained with legends like Eric Paulson, Andre Galvao, Rafa and Gui Mendes, and Otavio Sousa. A three-time No-Gi World Champion at featherweight and European Champion, Tom has also competed in events like Polaris Pro and Tuff, where he is a recurring commentator. He teaches seminars across the UK and Europe, excelling as both a coach and professor, balancing his athletic career with his students' needs seamlessly.


Isle of Wight

The Isle of Wight is an island to the south of the UK mainland, it has become increasingly popular as a holiday destination as more people discover the island's natural beauty.


The Secret Garden

Nestled in amongst an old oak woodland, your accommodation sits between the trees of a peaceful orchard.

Our on-site chefs amaze and delight in equal measure, with evening meals by candlelight at the communal banquet table.

In addition to the beach, which is just five minutes walk away, you have a private route to Wootton Creek where you can chill, swim, or sit around the fire pit in the moonlight.

Board games include chess, go, scrabble and there are always plenty of packs of cards to hand.

This unique venue really is the perfect spot to forge unforgettable memories.


Important Note: You may notice some unusual meal times in the camp schedule. This is because island life encourages a connection to the ebb and flow of life, quite literally. The camp schedule has been tailored around tide times, allowing you to fully benefit from the sea.
