I can't recommend Professor Tom Tegner enough. I have the good fortune of training at Cascadia Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Pedro Sauer Team and from the get go I was welcomed as family. Excellent breakdown on techniques with equal emphasis on self-defense and competition. If you are in the Portland, Oregon area, please stop by Alive MMA for some great instruction and fun rolls.

I could ramble on about personal experiences but it has to be said I already knew Art personally before training. Art my friend and Art teaching me BJJ are two different people. He might argue this with me but I make a good point. I got everything I needed from Art as a coach. He explains things in ways that even the foundationless, like myself, can understand. Important things that some instructors may leave to experience, Art makes those things interactive. For me, the " Let me show you why you DONT want to do that" helps a mind like mine. I need to touch the hot stove so I don't do it again. This is important for a BJJ student because this is not ballroom dancing, people. Art's is quick, to the point, everything you NEED to hear and nothing you don't. I would not have come as far as I did had he told me everything I did was perfect. I have been blessed with several helpful training companions along my road to not sucking AS BAD as I did yesterday in BJJ. I can say that Art built my foundation quickly and had more than a LOT to do with how fast I progressed after my first month. In martial arts (or any sport), people underestimate the importance of a good foundation and a skilled/supportive coach. You get both with Art.

I've been training under Art for about a year and a half when I began training with him I was out of shape and had no real skill to speak of. Now I'm down sixty lbs and 2-0. He genuinely cares about his students and goes far out of his way to help others and ensure their growth and has become a mentor to me I would strongly recommend him to anyone looking to improve their health, or BJJ.

Hello I'm dom jones I'm a wrestler . I don't know anything about bjj . I've been training for 6 months . I'm 4-0 and a lot of that has to do with Art. He showed how to pass and take good position. I feel comfortable on my knowning I can sweep people and take control and work bjj moves . Art is a great coach, friend and teacher .

Art is the reason I started training bjj, a few years ago I came into a gym an out of shape previous heavyweight wrestler, handling most of the people I rolled with in the gym with realative ease. I got served up a big piece of humble pie after being submitted a string of times in a row. He then began helping with constructive criticism and pointers. I thought who is this guy? I need to take his class. I found out that "guy" was not only an amazing technical grappling artist, but an extremely patient and intuitive teacher. Art continues to be one of my coaches, training partners, and friends.

MY JIU-JITSU RANT. BY: BOBBY THOMPSON

Here's a lengthy rant I put together on my background with the art and sport of Gracie/Brazilian Jiu-jitsu. I'm not a writer and I never blog so it's erratic and jumps around a quite a bit. Many of you have written me and I've made some friendships from having developed the site so I thought I would share a little about who I am, my history in the sport, some of my experiences (positive and negative) and my opinions about styles of teaching and things as trivial as terminology. Basically it's a brain fart. Please let me know your thoughts. These are just my opinions and they are not wrong or right, just what I believe. We are all entitled to them... click here to read the rest
