Hi I’m Tom, head coach at Grapple Machine if you’d like to know a little more about me, my background and where Grapple Machine came from, check out the above video.

A few quick things if videos aren’t for you…

I am a professional strength and conditioning coach working specifically with grappling athletes from amateur to professional level. I have various qualifications including being a Shredded by Science academy certified coach, as well as a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belt and Japanese Ju Jutsu Black Belt. I compete regularly in submission grappling and have previously competed at Amateur level in Mixed Martial arts. 

This places me in an excellent position to offer highly tailored and specific programming and guidance for grappling athletes.

Outside of coaching I have a penchant for comic books, action figures and general geekery.
