about The Instructor

Raoul Audhoe brown belt

Raoul has over 20 years of Martial arts experience, and has been grappling for over 17 years. At 15 years old he started his martial arts journey with Capoeira. Since then Raoul has trained in several martial arts including kickboxing, boxing, SHOOTO (MMA), BJJ and Sambo. After training MMA for 6 years and fighting several amateur fights, in 2016 Raoul transitioned to solely training and competing in grappling arts. Raoul has competed internationally in grappling tournaments and superfights in the Netherlands, Belgium, Norway, Italy, Germany, U.S.A. and Canada. By early 2019, after being influenced by Priit Mihkelson (renowned Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt instuctor from Estonia) he started to train, develop and teach a more conceptual based approach to jiujitsu, relying less on specific techniques but rather focusing more on proper body posture and overarching concepts that can help obtain a tactical advantage on the mat. In October 2021 Raoul received his BJJ brown belt from Priit Mihkelson. In November 2021 Raoul opened his own grappling and BJJ academy: TRIBE Grappling

Rated 5 stars by satisfied grapplers

“This will have a huge impact on your leg lock game.”

The hooks help me to control my leg lock positions ways better than I was used to. Now I know what to do when people unlock my feet, other than go into a different position and try to get back into their legs. Counterpressure hooks are the answer to that – how to always have options to control the other guy and quickly return to his legs. I also rolled with Raoul and I literally didn’t have a second to catch my balance. He uses the hooks super well to off balance you and then has easier time getting leglocks. This will have a huge impact on your leg lock game. Study it, learn it, use it!

“A unique weight management system for lower body attacks.”

Raoul got a unique weight management system with his hooks that allow him to engage in lower body attacks without putting himself at risk. Rolling with him was quite interesting as I experienced entrances to legs and angles I’d never felt before.

“Every single time I find myself stuck in his game.”

I’m really intrigued by Raouls footlock attacks, setups and traps. I’ve had the pleasure of rolling with him on several occasions and every single time I find myself stuck in his game.
