How We Started
Check us out in COPPERFIELD next to the Kolache Factory.

First of all, I would like to welcome you to our school and welcome you to our teaching methods of Grand Master Hélio Gracie.  My name is Roy Cantu and I would like to begin by sharing a little of my background with you and my experience with Jiu-Jitsu.

I have been a dedicated student of  Jiu-Jitsu since 1998. I hold a black belt in Jiu-Jitsu.  Before opening this school, I taught Jiu-Jitsu at a local school called TNT.  I opened my school in September of 2008 with the help and support of my great friends and fellow students, Lance Geiger, Ken Gruller and Chad Rose. I shared space with another school before deciding to take the big plunge and opening my own place which is where we are currently. We had been here in Copperfield for 1 year when we realized that we had to expand and we had to expand quickly!

We’re still a new school, but I’m hoping we’ve accomplished our goal in becoming a school where people can come to learn the best self-defense in the world, come to get a tough and fun workout like no where else and come to a clean, family friendly environment.  Hello.
