Tecumseh Jiu Jitsu

What is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu?

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art, combat sport and self-defense system that focuses on grappling and specifically ground fighting techniques. The art is derived from Japanese Kodokan Judo and teaches that a smaller and physically weaker person can successfully defend against a larger and physically stronger attacker with the correct use of leverage and understanding of bio-mechanics.
Jiu-Jitsu was brought to Brazil by Mitsuyo Maeda (also known as Count Coma) in the early 20th century who taught it to the Gracie Brothers, most notably to Carlos and Helio Gracie. When Carlos Gracie opened his first academy Helio Gracie learned the techniques and modified them so that they are more applicable to someone as small and weak as he was, since traditional Judo techniques were impossible for him to perform. Over time, these new techniques were refined, expanded and reviewed to become what is known as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu today.
Tecumseh Jiu Jitsu
Tecumseh Jiu Jitsu was founded by Miss Loree and Dean Hersche as Kingsville Martial Arts Academy. After years of successful operation in Kingsville, Dean and Miss Loree relocated to Tecumseh and rebranded the school as Tecumseh Martial Arts Academy.
In continuing the proven legacy of the best Brazilian Jiu Jitsu instruction in the area, Eric Marentette and Miss Loree currently teach Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to people of all ages. Tecumseh Jiu Jitsu is a member of the Detroit Jiu-Jitsu Syndicate and maintains its strong ties to the main academy in Detroit and its teachings.
