About our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Program:
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is widely recognized as one of the most effective forms of self-defense in the world. Made famous by it's tremendous success in the UFC and No-Holds-Barred competitions, BJJ effectively uses positioning and leverage to neutralize the opponent.
Most fights will eventually end up on the ground and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu addresses that situation. Practitioners learn a variety of chokes, joint locks, and manipulations to submit the opponent, regardless of size.
At TNT, we are proud of our affiliation with world renowned Prof. Carlos “Caique” Elias, one of the very few Black Belts in the United States trained by the legendary Gracie family at the Gracie Academy in Brazil. Our affiliation with Prof. Caique and his organization allows us the opportunity to train with some of the best Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioners in the world, including a recent seminar with Royler Gracie.
As members of Team Caique, we are pleased to be able to offer students the highest quality instruction in the ancient art of Jiu-Jitsu, one of the most popular and sought after martial arts systems in the world. We offer classes in a professional environment that is cooperative and instructional, not competitive or aggressive. While some dojos may encourage a more competitive atmosphere among students, at TNT Martial Arts you will find that the other students in the class are here to support and encourage each other. More experienced students are always happy to help new practitioners learn and improve.
In our Mixed Martial Arts classes, we combine the devastating strikes of Karate, Kickboxing and Muay Thai with the proven ground skills of BJJ, allowing students to become proficient in both stand up and ground skills. By participating in the MMA classes, students can train like the professional UFC fighters without the same high risk of injury.
