Learning at the Snake Pit is a tremendous experience, I can’t think of another place that has such a great atmosphere, everyone training without ego, developing together.

Roy Wood’s coaching is remarkable; he knows just when, and how much, to push you. He knows a counter from every position. You can be struggling away with all your might and Roy will say something simple like ‘just move your leg to there’ and suddenly the position shifts and you’re on top.

It’s been great helping teach the kids, seeing the art passing to another generation, an ancient physical literature that lives through them and helps teach them how to live.
