England's Dave Coles and Simon Small, BJJ Police

David Coles and Simon Small are leaders of The Combat Academy in United Kingdom and came to Rio de Janeiro to stay in Connection Rio HQ and train at the Gordo Jiu-Jitsu/Gracie Fusion academy for a while. Coles has a solid background in Judo, and Small started in Karate and then moved to Kickboxing for more action. These two UK instructors granted an interview to ITG's Dennis Asche where they spoke about their experience in Brazil, the team and the curious BJJ Police. A squad elaborated to ban fake BJJ practitioners without credentials from teaching the gentle art.
