What is Brazilian Jiu Jitsu?
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu focuses on getting an opponent to the ground in order to neutralize possible strength or size advantages through ground fighting techniques and submission holds involving joint-locks and chokeholds. On the ground, physical strength can be offset or enhanced through proper grappling techniques.
Why are we the best?
We have a structure that focuses heavily on the fundamentals. The majority of classes are taught by Our Head Instructor BJJ Black Belt Cody Floyd.
How do I get started?
You dive right in. There’s no good way to prepare yourself for this. Jiu Jitsu is unlike any other martial arts or sports you may have experience with. The good news is, everyone in the Jiu Jitsu community remembers what it was like their first day. Everyone is here to help you grow and get better. If my teammate gets stronger, I get stronger. That's our philosophy.
What is Submission Wrestling?
Submission Wrestling is a combination of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Wrestling, and Judo techniques. We also call this No Gi Jiu Jitsu.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu vs Submission Wrestling
The difference between Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Submission Wrestling is that you do not wear the Gi (uniform) in Submission Wrestling.
Mixed Martial Arts Striking
Cody Floyd is our lead MMA Instructor. Cody has coached multiple fight teams with impressive winning records. Our Academy has active Professional and Amateur MMA fighters. We also have MMA classes tailored to beginners.

I’ve been making trips to Tupelo Jiu Jitsu Academy preparing for an upcoming fight and I’m really impressed with this place. Very clean facility, quality mats and equipment. But more than anything, very knowledgeable, experienced coaches. I’ll be making many more trips back and if you are local to the area and looking to learn real self-defense or to get in shape doing something practical, do yourself a favor and check this place out.

I’ve been to a lot of gyms in my days and never felt as welcomed as I did the first day I came in. Cody, Ben, Kaspar and the rest of the coaches are top-notch. Friendly environment with a wealth of knowledge that they are willing to show from the first-day-guy to the guy-that’s-been-doing-it-all-their-life, they can learn something in every single class!
