Wave BJJ is a school teaching Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in London, we have schools in West London in Chiswick and South East London in Elephant and Castle.
We started out as Chiswick Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in 2013 but once we opened our second school in Elephant & Castle South East London this no longer seemed appropriate so we decided to rename in 2016.
Wave Brazilian Jiu Jitsu focuses on technique and helping each other learn. We like to have fun with lots of social events and club trips abroad and we like to compete and have been successful in competitions winning a bunch of medals in competitions around the UK and abroad.

Lorenzo started training BJJ in 2005, he didn't even know what it was when he started having originally started training Krav Maga. One day he stumbled on The Roger Gracie academy and was looking around when his first instructor Prof. Felipe Alves Da Souza came up to him and asked if he was ok, this friendly and calm attitude got Lorenzo intrigued and he decided to have a go, he hasn't looked back since.
Lorenzo quit his office job in 2013 and opened ChiswickBJJ/WaveBJJ in May of that year. He now teaches and follows his dreams.
