Fancy learning something new?

Try Brazilian Jiu Jitsu!

(Beginner & Intermediate level)

Hi all!  Welcome to my page on Borders.co.uk!

I am Kevin Hamilton, originally from Selkirk and I have been practicing and competing in No Gi Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for 7 years.

Join me at The Training Station, Tweedbank, Galashiels and learn self defence in a very friendly environment where everyone helps one another to become better.

No Gi BJJ, grappling, submission wrestling and counter attacking techniques.
(Gi is the Japanese word for Traditional Uniform, or what many consider to be Karate Suit for example.
We are less formal and no one wears a Gi here).

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)

What days/times are classes on?
–  Wednesday & Fridays (8-9pm)

How much does it cost?
– £5 per session.

How old do I have to be to take part?
Ideally aged 13+.  We currently have participants in their early-mid teens all the way upto adults.

How do I find you?
We are in Perident’s old building in Tweedbank Industrial Estate
(literally a 1 minute walk right across the road from The Train Station)
Walk into Ind Est, turn left and just look for the sign that says “The Training Station”

Do I need to bring anything?  What should I wear?
Shorts, Tee-shirt (ideally skin tight eg Under Armour).  A Gumshield is recommended, but not essential.

Am I at high risk of getting injured?
Well there is of course an element of risk in any contact sport, but thanks to the really friendly environment we have here at The Training Station, I think it is safe to say that because of our supportive culture the risk of injury is kept to an absolute minimum.  There is a lot of give and take and the more experienced practitioners love to help the newbies get better!  No one is out to hurt you.  No knuckleheads here!  🙂  If you are still not convinced, why not come and just watch for a night?

If I get pretty good at this, is there the opportunity to take part in competitions down the line?
Absolutely!

Do you also do MMA at The Training Station?
Yes we also have excellent MMA, Muay Thai and Boxing coaching here at The Training Station.

If you are interested or would like to know more please give me a phone.
I’d love to hear from you!   Kevin

NB  We always recommend that you get advice from your Doctor/Physician if you have any doubts about taking part in what is a physical contact sport.

    Did you know........

    Five miles north east of Earlston and just to the west of the village of Gordon, the surprisingly complete remains of Greenknowe Tower, also sometimes known as Greenknowe Castle, stand a hundred yards to the north of the A6105.

    From the gate the access path leads up a gentle slope and around to the entrance, as usual for a tower house this is placed in the easily defended angle between the main body of the tower and the wing containing the spiral staircase.

    Externally, Greenknowe Tower is in good condition, largely complete up to the original roof level, though part of one corner turret has collapsed at some point. The appearance of the tower is made all the more interesting by the use of red stone in parts of the structure, brightening up what would otherwise be a uniform grey. The tower would originally have been surrounded by a walled courtyard, and part of the courtyard surface can still be seen to its east.

    Internally the kitchen on the ground floor retains its vaulted roof, but from the first floor hall upwards the tower is open to the skies. The spiral stair can be followed up to a platform at the upper floor level in the stair wing.

    Greenknowe Tower was built in 1581 by a minor landowner, James Seton, and he lived here with his wife Janet Edmonstone. The lintel above the main entrance carries the date of construction, the shields of the Seton and Edmonstone families, and the initials IS and IE: the "I"s should be read for "J"s. The Seton family had owned land in the Parish of Gordon since marrying into the Gordon family: who in turn had been granted the estate by Malcolm II in 1018.

    In the 1600s the tower was purchased by the Pringle family of Stichel, one resident being the noted Covenanter, William Pringle. By 1850 it was no longer lived in, and in 1937 it was placed in state care by the Dalrymple family, who also contributed towards its consolidation. Today Greenknowe Tower is in the care of Historic Environment Scotland #LoveBorders
