About Being One of the Biggest and One of the Greatest!

May 27 2019

Yes, Warrior Martial Arts Academy has one of the biggest Competition Teams in the DFW area. And yes, we win lots of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu tournaments. But friends, remember that we started small. Warrior Martial Arts Academies launched in 2013 and we grew our Competition Team to the scale it is today. Just a bit of history: our team started about as small as you can get. Our first Competition Team had two kids that we took to Oklahoma for our first tournament (see photo of Julian and Karson). We just went to fight. No team rash guards. No patches….

Great Turnout for Warrior In-House Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Tournament!!

Mar 19 2019

We recently had our in-house Brazilian Jiu Jitsu tournament at our Warrior Martial Arts Academy West Frisco location. We hold this event for all of our Academies across the Dallas / Fort Worth metroplex each year. The goal is to give some students that are not “formally” on our Competition Team a chance to test their BJJ skills against students from other locations. We run the event for ages 3 – 14. We organize the event by weight, age, size and ability. It is a submission-only event, with double elimination. A big “thank you” to all the instructors and parents…

She shows the kindergarteners all the classic poses: mountain,…

WOMEN – Martial arts is the best workout you’re NOT doing!

Jan 04 2019

From Shape Magazine: Q: What are the benefits of boxing workouts or mixed martial arts training for women? A: I must give full disclosure: I’m a huge fan of mixed martial arts (MMA). The techniques include striking (kicks, knees, and punches) and grappling (holds, sweeps, and throws). I incorporate boxing and Jiu-Jitsu into my own weekly training plan. I also work with MMA fighters on a regular basis. That being said, I think that every woman, regardless of age or athletic ability, can benefit tremendously from incorporating some boxing and/or martial arts into her training program. Whether you want to…
