James Brown (“JB”) began studying martial arts in his teenage years. He started with traditional martial arts moving from style to style, trying to find an art that was effective and fun to train. While training kung fu 1996 his training was interrupted by a visitor to his instructor’s studio. The visitor was a white belt in Brazilian jiujitsu and he was looking for training partners. JB was happy to oblige and soon found himself waking up from a short nap, wondering how he had been rendered unconscious. The thought quickly occurred to him that, “this was what he had been looking for!” He has been training Jiu-Jitsu with a passion ever since. JB received his black belt from Carlos Machado in 2004. At that time there were only a handful of black belts in Texas.
