Kam Atakuru

Widely considered as one of the best grapplers to come from the North of England, Kam has experience in MMA, Grappling, Wrestling, Catch Wrestling and BJJ. Kam has taken his competition success and brought it into his current role as the head coach of ASW Manchester. His first introduction to sports was through his father who was a competitive arm wrestler. His father put him into football at an early age, Kam took to it right away. He focused on football as a youth, playing to a high level. As he progressed he began to look for different outlets when a friend introduced him to JKD and Muay Thai. In the same facility, there was a group that was starting to train BJJ in the Gi. Kam tried it out and he has not looked back since.  

Grappling Game

A favourite quote of Kam’s is by Jone Jones “ I want to have the best guard game that the world has never seen.” He is known for being an explosive wrestler, an expert from the top position and a nasty submission artist. One of Kam's main focuses is working on the transitions between the standing work and the mat work. As well as understanding how to blend and combine techniques from varieties grappling styles. These focus areas have lead Kam to having a very unique (and brutal) style of grappling which he has used to break opponents on the grappling mat and in the cage. In recent years he has been passing this style along to his students of having seen much success in every competition setting.
