Jiu-Jitsu Training

A professional musician and drum instructor, married, a father of two, life long learner, and a full time educator. Jeff Hennen first heard about Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) through a martial artist friend who had trained with him in Tae Kwon Do. After seeing the 2nd UFC on pay per view he was hooked! Jeff became a total believer in the art of BJJ. Jeff first started learning BJJ by purchasing the Gracie Basic videos; training with friends on mats in his front yard. He met Royce Gracie for the first time when he went to a Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Seminar in San Antonio, TX.

In 1996 Jeff went to the Gracie Academy in Torrance, CA. to train with Royce Gracie for 7 days. After returning to Texas he joined Allen Mohler’s new found school http://www.mohlerjiu-jitsu.com/ where he trained thereafter.

Jeff received his blue belt in 1997, his purple belt in 2002, his brown belt in 2004, and his black belt in 2006. Jeff started teaching in the beginning of 2002 at AMI, where he has dozens of students. AMAI Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes are geared for the all enthusiasts including the average person who wishes to train in a relaxed, friendly, and safe environment. There is no “attitude” permitted at AMI. Whether your an interested novice, staunch competitor, or MMA fighter, every is treated & expected to treat others with respect.

Relaxation and control are highly stressed to avoid injury within each art at AMAI. Jiu-Jitsu means the “gentle way”. Anyone can use muscle and aggression to fight, but the BJJ practitioner learns to relax and flow, defeating their opponent with one’s brain…not muscle. Learning to think several moves ahead, much like a chess player is the strategy. With proper instruction, a good environment, and plenty of repetition, one can truly learn how to defend themselves while having a great time and enhancing their health; making lifelong friends along the way. Jiu-Jitsu changes lives!
