Karl Tanswell SBGi Vice President and SBG Manchester Head Coach
In July 2007 Karl Tanswell became the third Instructor to receive his BJJ black belt from Matt Thornton. Here is a note from Matt regarding this promotion: “I have known Karl for about Eight Years now, and those of you that have worked with Karl already know he is a world class Coach. Whether you have seen his work on BODOG, or had the pleasure of attending one of his workshops recently to see the innovative MMA curriculum he has developed, there is no doubt Karl is one of the top MMA Coaches in the world at the moment.
What you may not know is Karl is equally skilled with a gi. He can teach the entire Art of BJJ, gi, no-gi, MMA, and the self defense applications. He has helped Coach multiple world Champions, and the UK SBG athletes consistently dominate in both submission and MMA events. And I am proud to add Karl to my list of black belts.”
