Tim Brogan

Tim is a brown belt in BJJ who has been training and competing for the last seven years.

I discovered the sport upon been taken to a private MMA lesson and was shown some of the basics of Jiu-Jitsu. I still recall a feeling of awe when the instructor showed a simple mount escape. The mystique of these movements captured my attention and I fell in love with the art instantly.

My goal in Jiu-Jitsu is constant improvement. I’m dedicated to self-directed and continuous learning in all aspects of life, and this is key in my approach to my Jiu-Jitsu. I’ve been very fortunate to benefit from the sport in way of self-improvement, fulfilment and friendships. I feel indebted to the art and am keen to give back. I’m always looking to help others along their journey, I take great enjoyment in working through technique with beginners and watching them progress.

I’m what you would call a hybrid hobbyist/competitor. While I maintain a life outside of BJJ with a busy career in advertising, I still enjoy hard training and competition. I’m an advocate for Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu as a hobby and in its benefits in the form of improving self-confidence, weight loss and learning self-defence. I firmly believe there’s great value in competition. You gain insights into your identity and it gives you a platform for self-improvement. I also believe that you will never have a true understanding of the sport till you have to execute under pressure.


In regards to my training style; when learning a move I’m detail orientated. When teaching a move I challenge myself to deliver instruction in its simplest form. I’m a firm believer in brilliant basics and focussing on moves that have a practical application, but I’m very interested in the development and evolution of technique within the sports highest levels. Hence, I’m happy to teach and workshop to the level of a student or training partner.
